Re: rent or buy?

CGT in Greece is still under suspension at present. If it were still in existence I would have been able to offset it after payment against any UK liability. The rates quoted when it was first introduced were more favourable than those in UK which would have been useful!

Re: rent or buy?

At the time I made the final and largest payment for the house the rate was 1.50€ to the pound. Needless to say I am watching the fluctuat...

Re: rent or buy?

I am now at the final stages of selling my beautiful home on Crete. I was in the fortunate position of buying it as a second home 15 years ago, off plan, as a cash buyer. The costs then were fully explained to me. I have used it over the years as I wished, never having rented it out, though my nephe...

Re: Village Boundries

This problem only applied to 67 villages in Rethymno Warwick. When the legislation was drawn up with regard to village boundaries, central government did not apply it to the area correctly and it was withdrawn, so we are in limbo. I am in another area affected. The opinion of my builder seems to be ...

Re: To have a TV or not?

I have never rented my home in Crete in all the years I have owned it, however, my youngest nephew and his family have used it for two weeks each year and have been grateful to have use of a TV and DVD player. When they were small, even with the use of the pool, they were happy to spend some time in...

At that time I was dealing with John Paterakis. He has now started his own company, three years ago I moved t...

Re: Currency Index

Looking back over my last five transactions Carolina three have reached my Eurobank account on the same day. The other two the following day. It depends on the time you start the transfer. An early morning transfer will go the same day. After 12 noon on the day of request means the money will probab...

Re: bank account after brexit

My Sterling account with Eurobank had been made dormant, when I visited the bank in October, due to lack of use. It was opened again immediately and updated by the staff without production of any documents other than the pass book. I had however made regular use of my Euro account with them so presu...

Have you had them treated to prevent olive fruit flies? My neighbour in not interested in taking any from my trees because they show signs of damage.
