DVLA Code

Just for interest. I tried twice this morning to obtain a DVLA Code which my hire car provider at Heathrow insists I have with me when I pick my car up later this week. Both times I filled in the online form, tried to submit it and got a 'Technical problem - try again later' message. I switched on m...

Re: Property Register declaration

To be honest, Jeff, I don't know. My accountant keeps making appointments with me to do whatever needs to be done, but every time I attend he says the new Land Registry isn't up and running yet. New forecast is early January. What he did say is that I will need my contract (deeds), my topography and...

Re: Property Register declaration

If anyone is missing their 'Transcription Certificate' (ΠΙΣΤΟΠΟΙΗΤΙΚΟ ΜΕΤΑΓΡΑΦΗΣ) in the Sitia area, please PM me and I can steer you towards the appropriate office where getting a copy is a fairly simple procedure.

Re: Windows 10 Sleep Problem

Can't help with any advice, but mine does exactly the same - sometimes it wakes by tapping the mouse, and sometimes I need to press the power button. It always goes to the sign-in screen and from thence to whatever windows I had open. I haven't had the new laptop long, but it didn't start doing this...

Re: Property Register declaration

You're in good company, Mixos, I haven't got one either. Possibly not a coincidence that we bought our properties from the same estate agent? I'm seeing my accountant next week about the register - If he can shed any light I'll let you know.

Re: The Will of the People

....unless the EU decides to give the UK more time. According to today's Times, a three-month extension to Article 50 is "under discussion in European capitals to allow time either for a second referendum or a Norway-style soft Brexit." Could just be more Brexit waffle, of course. Yep. Wh...

Using that logic suggests that you live in central Macedonia - and I don't believe that to be the case. :wink:
