Re: Fresh Cream

I never saw 'fresh' cream in any of the local Rethymnon supermarkets whilst I lived in the area. UHT pouring single cream and whipping cream was available in small cartons, however, in Lidl, AB, Halkidakis and Pavlakis.

Re: Doors and windows

As advised in an earlier query by another member: For doors/frames made to order I would suggest Christoforakis who are a wood working joinery firm on the right of the main highway, past Lidl. as you go towards Chania. ... They made a substantial set of rails for me to order for a reasonable price. ...

Re: Could this be true?

At the bottom of a box of yellowing papers I found a print-out of a post from the old Interkriti forum, sharing information on how to write a Greek will bequeathing everything to a partner and explaining the reason for this. I used the same method Clio having found the information on Intertkriti pr...

Re: ENFIA Property Tax online now

The link has been very useful together with the illustration on the Apokoronas news site. When I received the document from my accountant by email I was worried because the payment paperwork is different this year. I do not know the passwords required to download it from gsis, since my accountant ha...

Re: Selling and how to get the funds to the UK?

Glad you finally got sorted, the drop in exchange rates has, no doubt, compensated for all the hassle!

Re: Property in Forest areas.

I am pretty sure back when developers were building no one gave a thought what land was being built on as long as the money kept flowing in those brown envelopes. Sometimes there is a simple answer as to why. No brown envelope from me when I bought, but my Builder ??? I paid land registry fees at t...

There is a filling station and the turn off is almost immediately after it down to thei...

Re: Selling and how to get the funds to the UK?

A correction to my earlier posting on the subject. The buyer chose to pay the settlement figure from his National Bank of Greece account, not directly to me from the Netherlands. Despite the capital controls which are shown under information freely available from NBG, the final payment, well in exce...

I switched to John Paterakis at Insuranceline in Rethymnon for my last few years. The policies for my house ,which included pool and earthquake cover, and car were...

Re: Selling and how to get the funds to the UK?

No flouting of Greek financial laws as far as my and the buyers lawyers were concerned. I have provided copy bank statements for both accounts to prove receipt, this was a condition written into the contract. Nomad too did well for me. I shipped six boxes, including a large Cretan pot with them. All...

Re: Selling and how to get the funds to the UK?

Well, my sale has all gone through and the house was finally sold with no problems other than the usual disorganised Greek methods with regard to communication and appointments! I had to delay my flight due to last minute running around dealing with Greek bureaucracy. My buyer was not happy with tha...

Re: Transferring funds, and pink slips

I have to download the transfer document for each transaction as I transfer funds UK to Greece, (via Germany) with TransferWise. On handing them over to Eurobank I get the pink slips with no problem.
