Re: Property Register declaration

I've just received a second email from the accountant, who says the Certificate of Transcription will say ΠΙΣΤΟΠΟΙΗΤΙΚΟ ΜΕΤΑΓΡΑΦΗΣ at the top, (which Google translates as Transparency Certificate) Google also translates it as "TRANSCRIPTION CERTIFICATE". The document I referred to in my e...

Re: The Will of the People

A useful document. I think it is worth noting that Clause 20 states We will continue to push the EU and Member States to secure these rights as soon as possible, which are in the mutual interest of all our citizens. Where it is in our control, the UK will also continue to preserve certain rights of ...

Re: Property Register declaration

When we originally bought our land we got a copy of the contract from the Notary and again, after my wife died, I got another contract transferring her 50 % of the property to me. Both contracts were taken to the land registry in the local town hall and certificates were issued certifying that those...

Re: DEH Electricity Company

Any idea when the change occurred, Scooby? I use internet banking to pay my DEH bill, not Direct Debit, and my last payment was due on 28/11/2018. That still had the same payment code that I have been using for many years. I think my next bill is due for issue around 7 January and due for payment la...

Re: Currency Index

I think that the only significant difference between Currencyfair and Transferwise is that Tranferwise offer you a Borderless Account . This is an account in your own name with your own account number and IBAN number with a debit card that operates in a wide range of currencies using Trasferwise's l...

Re: Currency Index

I've not used Transferwise but Currencyfair are very similar, i.e. typically same day or next day depending on the time of the transaction. Sometimes the money has arrived on the same day but has not appeared on my online statement until the following day, because accounts are usually reconciled ove...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

I think Carol's Catch 22 hypothesis is probably correct. If so I suspect that you will hit the same problem at another office. The government circular gives people with a Greek licence an extension to the validity of that Greek licence provided they have applied for renewal, in order to allow them t...

Re: ENFIA 2019

In a new ekathimerini article it looks as though the reduction is not as clear cut as was suggested in the first article? Firstly the objective value of properties is due to rise next year and the year after, intended that objective and market values should align by 2020, so a cut in the rate won't ...

Re: Ellinair

They only seem to have 4 full time aircraft, with a further 6 added in peak holiday season, and they do fly to some out-of-the-way places, some of which I'm not even sure I can pronounce, so an elevated level of delays wouldn't really surprise me.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Be careful trying another office if you have already submitted your application to one. As part of the process you have to sign a legal declaration that you have not applied at another office.

Re: Ellinair

I wouldn't jest, Clio. I've actually seen someone taking a kitchen sink through check in at Moscow airport on top of a supermarket trolley full of other crazy items. I've also helped some older Greek friends, who were on the same flight from Thessaloniki to London, to carry their cabin baggage becau...

Re: The Will of the People

Purely for clarity, I think that there are other methods that can result in an early general election under the fixed term act, involving various votes of confidence, but I think it was the two thirds majority vote for it that was actually used.

Re: Ellinair

I've no experience of Ellinair but would make the following comments: 1 Dealing with excess baggage with any airline is usually very simple. They weigh your luggage and if it is overweight they simply send you to a customer service desk. You pay and go back to the check in desk with a paper proving ...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Unless and until a new law is enacted the administration should apply the existing law. Unfortunately in Greece administrations are usually pretty ignorant of what the laws they enforce actually say. If the law has been enacted but the process has not been enabled then the administrator is probably ...

Re: The Will of the People

I agree with a lot of what you say Keltz BUT, and it is a very big BUT , to stop the UK exiting without a deal parliament has to agree on something else . They cannot agree on what that something else should be. There are many factions, each with their own view of what the something else should be, ...
