Re: Property Register declaration

And if you are closer to Sitia than Ag Nik, Yorgo, the registry office there is on the Piskokefalo Road, about 500m out of Sitia, on the opposite side of the road from the warehouse of Bidakis, the courier company.

Re: Property Register declaration

Thanks for clarifying that, Warwick. Just by way of an update, my accountant has sent me another email showing an example of the certificate. It does indeed have ΠΙΣΤΟΠΟΙΗΤΙΚΟ ΜΕΤΑΓΡΑΦΗΣ as a heading on a single sheet of paper, with four large franked "postage" stamps in the top right corn...

Re: Property Register declaration

Thanks for responding, Warwick. I'm only going by what my accountant said in his email, which was: Until, May, all owners who are resident abroad (and March for Greek residents) have to declare their real estate ( plot,land,building ) in the Cadastral Register ( properties register), the responsible...

Property Register declaration

I have received an email from our accountant about the Property Declaration (Cadastral Register) that everyone who owns a property in Greece is obliged to complete before March 2019 (or May 2019 for non-residents.) Apparently, in order to comply with the new register we have to produce three things:...

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.

Re: Thinking of starting a security /property maintenance business.

It would also be helpful to know where you are located on the island, Pete.

Re: The Will of the People

I can't speak for Chania as I haven't flown to/from there for over 20 years, but I can't see how this will make any difference at Heraklion, where UK flight arrivals already pass through the extra-Schengen gates. If you're lucky and first off the transit bus you can sail straight through, but you ca...

Re: Why 3 pounds?

It's basic psychology, John. The charities figure that £3 is the kind of sum that you won't really miss, so you think: I'll just do that one then. But about a month or so after you set up your direct debit for £3 the charity will write to say: are you sure you can't manage £5? Or £10? So you feel gu...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

Bearing in mind Warwick's post above, surely we have reached the stage to ask the very straightforward question: In what way is this dog's dinner of a "deal" better than remaining as a full EU member?

Re: CAR TYRES

Yes, if they say 2013 they will definitely have to be changed, even if the tread is good, as evansmr1 explains. I had a new set this year, after five years with the old ones, and the garage said I should have changed them earlier -- even though the car passed the "MoT" without the tester s...

I'm not particularly knowledgeable, Granny M, but could they be the leech commonly known as a skate sucker?

Re: Why Brexit is Right

Hmmm. Just wondering if "Barry" is actually a reincarnation of a previous poster on here, who used to entertain us with his/her Brexit rants before. If he/she had signed up using a new email address I suppose Carol would not know for sure? The splenetic utterance in his/her final post seem...

Re: Still in Limbo

I thought I read somewhere that Theresa May had already, unilaterally, guaranteed the rights of EU citizens living in the UK. If that is so, why hasn't that been reciprocated by Barnier and his team? Or are they just playing hard ball?

Re: Making olive oil from our few trees

chrissy, you could get up to 20 litres of oil off your five trees if they are well loaded. Try to get a friendly neighbour to harvest them when he/she does their own trees if you can, and your oil would be part of that batch -- but it would still be some of yours!
