Re: Property purchase costs involved ?

The approximate expenses over and above the agreed selling price are 2.5% agent’s fees plus 3% purchase taxes and lawyers, notary and land registry fees which total around 5-6% So allow approx 10-11% in total on top of the asking price. https://www.dreamcatchers-crete.com/buying-a-property-in-crete

I¨ll bet 50 cent that the ferry after leaving Chania proceeds to Heraklion and than on to Piraeus.

Re: Gardens and Grass

Our neighbour has a lawn and their annual waterconsumption is about 800 cubic metre whereas our consumption is about 300 cubic metre. We do not have a lawn but our garden is larger than theirs. Good luck!

Re: Clocks go back this weekend

It was introduced in 1916 by Germany and Austria in order to save fuel/energy. Estimates in the USA from 2005 indicates a saving of 0.02% in the use of electricity but this is probable even lower today with the introduction of ledlights most places.
