Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

... Just book a 2 berth. You are not forced to share if you don't want to... Freight bookings work differently from normal car bookings, Andrew. You pay for the vehicle at a much higher price than for a car but the price includes two passengers and a cabin. Since the cabin is included in the vehicl...

Re: Oil central heating

Lots of different things you could do. Suggestions will no doubt flood in soon. Just one point, it sounds like you are not keen to build the "large boiler house" suggested. That is probably a good thing since a large structure might involve you in building permit........

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

Warwick, I will definitely check on if we have to bunk in with other 2 other complete strangers or if we get the cabin to ourselves and no crying babies :lol: On the Heraklion ferries, there are both 2 and 4 berth cabins. I don't imagine Chania ferries are any different. Just book a 2 berth. You ar...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

Nothing at all in Chania. I questioned it the first time it happened in January 2014 and they said I didn't need anything as everything was now done through the computer. Warwick Exactly right. I just think it's entertaining that our IKA office write it in in biro. Barely legible scrawl, I might ad...

Re: The Greek Ombudsman

I had a similar lack of response when I tried . It was ages ago though, so I can't remember the details. I think there was an issue about dealing with complaints submitted in English. I did eventually speak to them I think, but I can't remember how it panned out. It is an active service, but I don't...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

We have been paying ENFIA on builders's supply for the last two years. As pointed out earlier in the thread, there is no link between ENFIA and your electricity supply any more. It's calculated on the details of the property as declared in your E9 by your accountant. If for some reason the details ...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

ENFIA did not come into effect until 2014, so if, as mouche tells us,his house was legalised and connected to "normal" electric in 2013, he would never have been liable for ENFIA on his "builders" supply. So, it's a bit misleading to tell us that "you don't pay ENFIA" o...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

......I agree with your comment about the requirement to make monthly payments, Andrew, but what if the builder does not declare that any work has been done that month? It is not uncommon in Greece for building work to go in fits and starts and I don't think IKA carry out very rigorous on-site chec...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

........Building electricity is more expensive than domesti electricity but on the other hand you don't have to pay ENFIA. Wrong. As Warwick states, they charge ENFIA based on your E9. You also get stuffed for council taxes you didn't pay while on builders' supply. It may all seem pretty amateur, b...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

IKA payments are due month...

Re: Kalamata to Kissamos Ferry

It's great fun to watch but you may then struggle to find a place to sit comfortably. If the boat is full, you need to get there early and stake a claim to some seats. But then one of you could watch the fun on the jetty as the boat leaves.... If you have a cabin, then no problem. I would definitely...
