On the road from San Javier town to Murcia on the right hand side just past a petrol station and just before the camp site there is a motor spares shop. It is actually on a corner by the petrol station They are fairly helpful and sell good products

You are certainly not daydreamers. They are the ones who get on a plane and buy the 'first' property they see because it seems a bargain compared to UK prices. As posted before the best idea is to come over to rent for 6 to 12 months to get a feel for whichever area you decide on. Most posters on here will say that the area/region they live in is the best. Well it might be for them but not necessarily for you. I would suggest that you look at most of the Costas with the possible exception of the Costa Brava because of the policital problems at the moment.

When I came out many years ago I drew up a list of things that are important which include but are not limited to and in no particular order

Distance from airport

Established area so that there are medical facilities

Nearness to hospital

Local transport

Train station if needed

Distance to town etc.

Am I prepared to do up a place or must it be ready to walk into.

Is it easy to get around without a car (for when you get too old to drive)

And lots more.....you need to draw up your own list of priorities.

Other things to consider are do you really want to buy or just rent because of the different taxes here to the UK.

This research is endless.

You are correct that once you are away from the usual expat areas then it is imperative that you speak Spanish fluently.

Good luck in your hunting and keep us all informed

Thread: Are we just dreamers.....

Just a question on the way monies are allocated here in Spain. As an example if one has not paid their water bill last month but then pays for the current month the water company allocates the money to the current month and leaves the previous month as overdue. Therefore although one is paying regulary (now) they still have a month outstanding and the service can be cut off. If we now look at the community charges for someone who is several years in arrears and they now pay something, does this get allocated to the overdue amount or does it get allocated to the current period? As stated above the 'normal' practice in Spain is to use the payment to cover latest debt and then work backwards. However in the U.K. the usual practice is to allocate the money to the oldest debt and work forwards. Anyone have a definitive answer?

I have just looked on the Ryanair site and for the flights you showed they are only asking for £25 each way for  a 20 kilo case.. Looks easier and probably cheaper than sending by snail-mail. Good luck

The only criteria for being a president is that one owns a property in the community. Any owner, irrespective of where they are 'resident', can be president unless, at an AGM, it was voted that the president must be insitu. I have never heard of that happening and where I live many many non residents have been appointed president and the respective insurers have paid out claims where necessary.

I do not fully understand your question  regarding "an insurance claim made that relates to the president". If you mean a claim against the president personally then that is nothing to do with the community whereas if you mean a claim against the community then it is nothing to do with the president unless it can be shown, legally, that it was due to his/her negligence.

To use the old vernactular, I think you are getting your underwear in a twist and there is nothing to worry about.
