Finally moving to Son Bou

Post by TerrySonBou » November 6th, 2021, 11:36 pm

Hello all.
Couldn’t see an introduce yourself thread so apologies if this being my first post is not allowed.

We are upping sticks from UK & moving to Menorca later this month & Couldn’t be more excited. :cool:
Luckily own a few properties in the area of Sant Jaime so will be living in a place we normally rent out during the season, but we will probably be looking for something new to get our teeth into.

I can see this is not a very busy forum but having had a good search around I am sure it will be a very useful resource & maybe make a connection or two.

Lots of words just to say hello but there we are! :lol:

Welcome to the site Terry (just presuming that's the name) :grin:

It's fine to post in this bit and here's hoping we hear a lot more from you. Owning properties out there you must be a seasoned pro :grin: so any input from you will be invaluable.

Here's to seeing many more posts from you :toasting:
I'll stop moaning, when you give me a pay rise this :arms: big

Thank you Susie (I presume that’s you name too :lol: ) that’s me.
Not sure about being a seasoned pro but it’s something to aim for :lol:

We were really hoping to arrive before the season ended to see a few familiar faces (not been since 2019) but UK estate agents and solicitors put paid to that.

Welcome

We have a flat in Ciutadella and are intending to move there within 5-6 years. Plans right now are to maybe let the flat and rent a villa while we look for one as a long term home - good properties are tough to get in Ciutadella - so we might end up contacting you!

All the best for your move.

Thank you all for the welcome :finga:

All set for arrival Wednesday fingers crossed.
We have to stop off in Palma to have our cats authorised to enter Spain :lol:

Hope the recent storm conditions have not caused any of you any real problems… hope there were no power outages this time around too (I was there when it happened last time, maybe 3 years ago?)

Another thing to mention. I’ve been told squatters have turned up in Tori Sol again. Now becoming an annual thing it seems. Has anyone had any issues with this?

See you all soon.
So excited now

Squatters are quite a big problem all year round now. In some areas you're asking for trouble leaving an empty property for any length of time unless you fit an alarm that automatically notifies the police. As you might know, getting rid of them once they're in is notoriously difficult.
