Thanks Ladies and Gents for the warm welcome and the great contribution which has made life easy first day in Crete.
Tax numbers in hand, Bank accounts open and now going through the legalities. We found out a little problem that we are working with the Notary to fix ( the owners got exited a little and over built so we are producing drawings with accurate measurements). Luckily we found great Civil Engineer and Lawyers, both educated in the UK and speak perfect English. Very impressed by both up to now.
Banking rules have changed again and will update in the right thread when I can. To open a joint bank account, you have to open two single accounts, transfer €10,000 each minimum and then once validated you get the joint one and you can transfer all to the new joint one.
Any money you transfer from abroad, you can transfer within Greece with no limit, withdraw 30% at bank, daily max is €700, weekly max is €840 (420 each).
Luckily, both the bank and Muncipality were empty so had no trouble up to now but it's early days. Just waiting to get joint account in a couple of minutes as the transfer has arrived and the lady is printing the cards.
Not bad at all for just over a day but the difficult bits are ahead!! Updating and legalizing both buildings and split the land and need to make sure I get the fig tree
Need to find a decent builder asap once I get the keys.
Thanks again, your contributions made our life a lot easier than expected up until now.
