Re: Selling a property in Greece

Hi good people-I have a query regarding the sale of a property. A friend has found a buyer for her house at long last, but she is worried that she won't be able to transfer the proceeds to her UK bank because of capital controls. Does anybody have any insight/wise words in this respect? Thanks guys...

Re: Lawyer - anybody knows him?

You say you dropped the asking price considerably to get a sale. Could I ask on what basis you to set the initial asking price, e.g. you thought you would give it a try, you were hopeful you could get that amount, an agent suggested that asking price etc? Warwick A bit of both really. Suggested an ...

Re: Ballot papers

How many people actually vote on the basis of the manifestos, I wonder? I'd be very surprised if it wasn't people's entrenched opinions and 'personality' favourites that decided which way people vote. I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but I'm the pessimistic sort... :-) I think you are right Phild. ...

Re: Lawyer - anybody knows him?

If it's of any help to the arguments going on, euro for euro we got 17% more than we paid over a period of 12 years ( and dropped the original asking price considerably!). Having failed my O level maths 3 times, turned up in the afternoon of the 4th ...

Re: Lawyer - anybody knows him?

Plaka - good choice! Especially good for burglaries, I hear? It used to be called "Little England" but it seems to be changing to "Lille Norge". :wink: I'm not aware of burglaries being a problem in Plaka. It's a mix of English, Norwegians, some Sweedes, a few Germans and French...

Re: Military aircraft

Is this incase they miss? :D Well, there was a case a few years ago when one of the surface-to-air missiles fired in a northerly direction from the base on the Akrotiri went bananas, turned around and started heading in the direction of the white mountains. Thankfully of course, it was destroyed be...

Yes. Once or twice a year the navy fires guns at target buoys in the bay. Often the turn from the National Road into Kalami is closed by police for the duration of the activity.
