Paying the villa purchase balance?

Hey , Just wanted some reassurance about our villa purchase and paying the balance. We're at the point of signing the final contract this week after we receive the certificate from the Foresty guys to say all is good and above board. We will I expect be paying the balance this week too. The English ...

Re: Teenagers & Internet

Filippos, I totally agree.. It'd be nice to actually have a conversation with them sometimes and not having them pretending to listen whilst still staring at a screen! At the same time I don't want them ruining our well earned holiday by saying they are bored! Also, how rude is that.. when going to ...

Teenagers & Internet

My family and I will be going to Crete for 3 weeks soon and want to find out if we can purchase some sort of extra bundle/package so they can use wifi on their phones whenever they wish. The area we will be spending much of our time in has limited data per month so is used sparingly, so not good eno...

Paint or varnish?

We would like to paint the shutters of our villa a Greek blue. They are currently just dark wood that has been stained (I think). Can anyone recommend what we could use that is going to be long lasting and tough so we don't have to redo them every year? Something like a ship paint!? Can you purchase...

Re: Anyone bought a house?

Picking brains again.. By what means should we pay our deposit / legal expenses and balance? We thought the best way would be from our Uk a/c to our Greek a/c then onto either the lawyer for our expenses and the sellers UK a/c for the deposit and balance? As far as I know the sellers don't have a Gr...

Re: Anyone bought a house?

Thanks again for all the info.

Could anyone also advise the safest way to send a legal document from UK to Crete. I'd like to be able to track it
all the way to its destination if possible with approx. £200 insurance cover!

Thank you!

Re: Anyone bought a house?

Firstly, thanks for everyones input! What is SWMBO?? I might just add that our Greek solicitor said it may be a problem getting a joint Greek a/c as I couldnt provide a recent P60! Last one I have is 1998! Can I request one from UK tax office? Secondly we don't intend to live in Crete just yet! Its ...

Re: Anyone bought a house?

The solicitor was going to get us a joint account but she says with the capital control situation at the moment, the bank may only allow her to open the account in one name! Does this sound like a fair comment or should we push to get a joint one opened if possible? Either way, we will definately ha...

Re: Anyone bought a house?

Jackdaw, yes it can be stressful stuff!! Well done on completing your purchase! We aren't going through an estate agent, its a private sale. The property is literally 100m from my brother in law who has lived there for 5 years now. They knew the owners who passed away and left the villa to their dau...

Re: Anyone bought a house?

Many thanks Warwick. We will be doing it through our Greek solicitor so should be ok. I was thinking more of the UK end and if we should use someone like Money Corp who I think would deal with it and get us the best rate! I will also ask our solicitor about 'pink slips' aswell, which I had also made...
