  1. I just got a small mortgage no problem at all - aged 58. Finally got fed up renting. Bought miles away from where I work - prices not so insane, caravan through the week and home at weekends.
  2. Thanks. I could see it going that way when I left a couple of years ago.
  3. 30K can go quite a way in some parts of the country.
  4. Apologies if already posted. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/council-tenants-offered-cash-buy-140034454.html#PIJkiBO

  6. Beckham law applied to everyone - not just footballers.
  7. It can be thoroughly miserable here in the winter. Very wet and although not so cold by UK standards the houses are very poorly insulated and they have no idea what a dampcourse is.
  8. I've been living and working in Spain for the last 13 years but moving on now. Cost of living has rocketed in the last few and tax changes mean I would be 300 euros amonth worse off if I stayed. Had no problems here (renting) - been able to move when the neighbours got too noisy or the house got too damp ( big problem here). It's been a good experience but it's definitely time to go.

  10. http://m.thelocal.es//20130807/brussels-backs-10-percent-wage-cuts-for-spain#.UgQSdHJCxxM.gmail What took so long? Edit: try to make the link work. Hate this Ipad
  11. A measure of the resistance to auto-ignition (detonation or knocking or pinking). The higher the compression ratio of the engine the higher the octane number required.
  12. Quite common in Spain. Agree a price, rent for a few years if you like it can then buy at the previously agreed price minus rent paid. OK if prices weren't tanking I guess.
