Re: Buying Land In The Middle Of Nowhere

It's not really a question of what Sarah wants the land for.... Warwick Exactly, thank you for putting it to be understandable :D In the same way that there are likely neglected olive groves, there may also be neglected small vineyards ...have a look around, maybe a long term land rental would be a...

Re: Buying Land In The Middle Of Nowhere

Well, it's very central, but it's not the 1st place people choose when buying a house in Crete, at least not if the substantial dereliction in the village is anything to go by! Yes - I will check out that boundary, because I want to *avoid* that premium, and buy on land that can only be used for fa...

Re: Buying Land In The Middle Of Nowhere

I would recommend a first port of call would be to your local council/planning office - you may be able to see the current village plan, where the boundaries are and what boundaries *might* be agreed at some point. If you wish to buy land fairly close by to your current house, and if that land finds...

Re: Looking after property

I apologise, I don't log on very often and I am unfamiliar with the private message retrieval processs.

I have got your email now and will write to you.

While here, I would also like to apologise to Woody who sent me a private message a year ago (about a gardener wanted)...I've only just seen that!

Re: Associate membership proposal

Would you say that the general public in the UK or in most of Europe " experienced " the wars in the Balkans that followed the breakup of Yugoslavia, TweetTweet, other than the nightly broadcasts by NATO's equivalent of Lord Haw-Haw? They certainly occurred but largely affected the popula...

Re: Associate membership proposal

Warwick said: We are rapidly reaching a time when everybody alive will have never experienced a war in Europe. I'm not sure that is reality ...the so-called 3rd Balkan War only finished in 2001 ...i.e. about 16 years ago ...from time immemorial Germany has waged war ....current incarnation is the ec...

Re: Looking after property

The wiring of my brain must be seriously disturbed this morning, TweetTweet. When I first read your post I thought you were offering to put Jackdaw in contact with somebody to teach him to read English. Note to self, "Put more tonic in it and/or don't get up early." Warwick I hope your wi...

Re: Currency Fair query

Thanks for your quick reply - I had been scrabbling around trying to find a telephone number but it had evaded me.

I have now spoken to them - I can send the funds direct to the third party.

Currency Fair query

I have found a second hand car I'd like to buy from Super Cars.

Using Currency Fair, can I send funds directly to them or does the money have to go to my Greek Bank and then they send it to Super Cars.

Thank you.

Re: Thought we'd seen the back of him

The Uncertainty Principle comes to mind
