As it was the utillites you want to prove me wrong, my question to you is why have you do feel the need to give us all this
I'm not saying newworld is way out. I know some community fees are horrendous depending on lifts, pools, gardens and so on. We have extensive gardens, five pools including lifeguards, electronic gates (no lifts) and so on which is why it is quite expensive in this area. Average cost around us is about 350 to 450 euro a year whilst ours is 960 a year. One community up the road, with just one pool and not big enough for a lifeguard, actually only pays €120 a year.
Same with IBI. I know some areas are expensive but ours, for a 3 bed 105 sqm build and medium sized garden was €212 a year and just gone up to €246 but I know of others in different municipal areas who pay 700 plus for theirs.
Gas and electric will, of course, be used a lot more in UK. Central heating would have been on since October and probably goes off in April (ish). We use our aircon for heating and only have it on perhaps 2 or 3 hours a day from December to March. Lots of days we don't have it on at all. Aircon very rarely used as we sit outside most of the time. Our electricity bills were around 200 every two months but we have been on smart meters for over a year and the bills have come down at least a third. We don't skimp on water (although we don't have a pool) but that is quite reasonable considering it includes rubbish collection.
Our phone bill in UK (line rental, broadband, calls) were averaging out about £55 a month. Yes, I see all these deals for broadband at tuppence a month (or whatever) but line rental has to be added. Our monthly bill for broadband and landline and calls is €24 a month. Of course, we don't pay a telly licence either which is now over £12 a month.
Anyone buying (and, at the moment I really would suggest renting) would be advised to look around the communities and find out how much things like community fees and council tax actually cost.
God only knows, As its nothing to do La Torre Golf as the OP asked for.
Also you being such a wise person i cant understand why your paying so for much for your phone and broadband in the UK, ive just done a 12 month deal with BT phone/broadband free calls in the evening and weekends £33 pm, Q your going to tell me i am wrong again
