Re: changing electricity supplier

We are in Moires area so Heraklion may be nearest KEN office. I do notice quite a few of their bills in the Kafenion, so perhaps the locals have found them a good bet. Again many thanks!

Re: changing electricity supplier

Thank you all for taking the trouble to reply. Do you know if all alternative suppliers are available in all areas? A clear online system would really help, although we'd also prefer to continue with a direct debit system. Do DEI refund your original deposit promptly too?

changing electricity supplier

We have been with DEI for years but have recently been approached by HRON and Elleniki Petpeliea with inducements to move to them.I'm sure there are others.
Has anyone experience of the benefits and disadvantages of so doing, and advice to give?

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Yes Warwick, I too had expected more, but that is what the architect said. Mind I have known him to be wrong! Really not for us to worry about and if we have departed I suppose people can swing as many or as few cats as they chose, although it would please me if some discerning person liked it just ...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Just to get back to my original query! You were right Andrew as the poor overworked Notary didn't know. He and the local architects and engineers are flat out in the final land registration for the district after several extensions. Whereas the latter folk are paid, for the notary it is just part of...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Dear Andrew, The only reason we are asking is that we are planning to sell. A little house with big garden and lots of privacy was perfect for us. The estate agent of course looks to the selling factors and land to build ( even if it would have destroyed our idyll) will certainly be one of them, eit...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Thank you Warwick and Andrew. I see we do have identical ratios on our topography but not sure what happens above 300 but I think it just means that final figure applies. I'd have had no idea what was meant so on the face of it there is plenty of building space, limited only by our existing layouts....

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Yes, I think we will talk to the Notary. I was hoping there was a standard ratio, + distances between properties and from boundaries, which I thought I dimly remembered, but better get it right!
Cheers!

Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

Can anyone advise me as to the square meterage of building one is allowed on a site within the village plan of slightly under 1,600 square metres please? We currently have a house of under 91 sms, and a detatched garage of about 30 sms, but I seem to remember that within the village plan you were al...

Re: PROPERTY REGISTRATION

Just an update from my queries of early April. I'm glad to say that everything has been done and we've received papers back from the Land registry, which we've paid through the bank+ payment to to Civil Engineer who added the co-ordinates to our topography and made the application on our behalf. So ...

Re: Local travel

Thank you for that. Good to know the road is passable, and to have the link for future us.
Cheers!

Local travel

I know there were some landslides and blockages on the road between Rethymnon and Agia Galini fairly recently. Does anyone know if it is now passable?
Also is there a site that does travel updates?

Re: PROPERTY REGISTRATION

Well that is interesting. I'm in the south, not far from Moires and everyone seems to be in a lather and the Civil engineers worked off their feet. That said the Greeks seem sanguine and say there is plenty of time, the deadlines will never be met etc.! So don't know whether it is rolling out within...

Re: PROPERTY REGISTRATION

Glad to report that the missing document was there all along but didn't seem to match the description. Our accountant doesn't handle this but a Civil Engineer does. He needs to come out to get "army co-ordinates" on our existing topography and we need to give him Power of Attorney to handl...

Re: PROPERTY REGISTRATION

Well that is a very clear reply Warwick. Many thanks. We had a dire solicitor and I wonder if she just failed to pass it on. Still if you can get a copy there is a chance of rectifying it, I suppose! We had so many crises during the early years and had grown a bit complacent, so dismayed to be back ...
