Hi Boycie

It is currently a holiday home as we can only get out there for about 10 weeks a year currently.

Any help appreciated

I am sure he is not ignoring your post, just wants as much information as possible.
I only let him think he's in charge.

I'm getting a sense that we should have a thread for day to day 'how to' stuff - ie get a gas bottle, sign on at the town hall, get residencia and so on.

That is a good idea If someone would like to post the first "day to day - how to" I'll make it sticky.

If it's a holiday home.

You need direct debits for Water, Electric, Council Tax, and community charge if it is a apartment on a complex.
Our solicitor did all of the above for us apart from the community charge which we did ourselves at the first AGM of the complex we attended.
The only other thing you need to do is non resident tax, our solicitor also did this for the first few years until I found another way to pay it which was very much cheaper than the solicitor. Hope this helps.
Always on my way to Menorca
