Sold property: final tasks to complete

We've just completed the sale of our place on the island and wanted to ensure we also took care of any loose ends - does anyone have feedback or additions to the below list: - ensure that we settle any apartment complex fees (or request a refund if we’ve overpaid these) - cancel our property insuran...

Re: Guide to conferring Power of Attorney

A short update to say that we found that this can also be done at the Spanish Consulate in London, for those who happen to live in the area. Got an appointment a couple of weeks after requesting one, visited at the agreed time, they drew up the PoA in Spanish and explained everything that was being ...

Re: Guide to conferring Power of Attorney

Thanks for this guide; it is well written and informative. Just a question - I had read about a change in the rules from a few years ago: "A 2016 ruling by the Spanish legal authorities states that Powers of Attorney (POAs) witnessed by British notaries public are not longer valid in Spain because B...

Re: Extended break in Menorca

Thanks, I'll look into the details of the 183-day rule, as my understanding was that this was specifically related to the calendar year, rather than a concept of a rolling 12 month period which you seem to be implying. Likewise, my understanding of the NHS treatment is slightly different to your inf...

Extended break in Menorca

Gosh, it's nice out here at the moment! :gwave: We are going to be spending about six months at our place on the island next year (from mid March to end of September), and are just getting things organised. I was wondering if anyone who had done this had any advice / points for consideration? So far...

Re: online, free bank account for non-residents

We also have a Banca March account, however have been considering just using our TransferWise borderless account instead.

Re: Off-island escapes....

Sounds like that was a very sensible decision indeed! Whilst our actual need for a temporary base in the UK is still a way off, I did find this site which seems interesting: http://londonfractions.com/properties/ - a couple of shares in these would cover 8 weeks of the year, albeit with probably rat...
