Hello to everyone in Quesada and those of us that love the place and of course to Quesada life its nice to be back in contact with everyone again, life has not been the same over the last few months without you all.
I see that the site has a lot more things to be added but at least we have our forum back. I would just like to ask everyone to get registered and tell everyone the forum is back so that we can build our on line community again, and so that I have some one to take to.
As a stay at home dad I try to make a living from working from home and signed up with a company to market their tv set top boxes and after using facebook for a while I got kicked off for a week. however they would allow me to post the same advert if I paid them! well I think this was unfair as I haven't even made a penny from it yet after a month... I don't know what to do now
Hi Steve I would love to know how to make money online, I think its a fantastic tool I just do not know how it works?
I'm still trying to find out properly myself but will let you know if I get there... I'm going to try and put an advert on this site now and see what happens
I now work for a claims company specialising in getting customers refunds from Spanish banks... it pays very well but it takes a couple of months for the first payment to reach your bank... as the Spanish legal system is slow... I can now work around my commitments... send me a PM at http://facebook.com/theclaimshop and I can get you started if this interests you
Built in 2011 at a cost of almost 9 million euros Torrevieja’s Social Care Centre remains closed because it still hasn’t been transferred by the Consell into the hands of Torrevieja City Council and it is still not known when it is likely to open.
The Consell say that they cannot open it yet because it “does not meet the legal requirements and also needs some modifications.
The Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolón, explained that the City Council had found three problems when they were going through the process of opening it as an adult centre, family meeting point and supervised children’s centre.
The first is that the property is “not legalised” since “it has not been formally handed”. This procedure has to be carried out by the construction company that erected the building. However, according to Dolón, the architect who was in charge of the project has refused to sign a statement of completion. “It’s a case very similar to the Municipal Theatre,” said Dolon, who blamed the situation on the PP saying “the normal thing is that when the work is finished everything is signed, but it has still not happened.”
The second of the “unpleasant surprises” that have been found is that money is still owed for the construction of the building. The construction company filed an appeal in the courts to claim 245,862 euros as settlement for the works, of which 79,839 was VAT.
The third problem is related to the building plot itself as formal reports were never made, a process that is carried out prior to the commencement of construction work.
The Centre has been built on a municipal plot of 11,152 square meters, divided into 7,630 square metres of garden and 3,522 square metres of accommodation space on the ground floor. The total constructed area is 5,000 square meters which will eventually be used by such local organisations as AFA, ALPE, AMFA, ADIEM and APANEE
However, the mayor was unable to provide any indication of when the building might open.

Hi there - we own a property in Cabo Roig which has been looked after by a Property Manager while we're in the UK. He managed to secure a long term tenant for us and all was well for a while. However, we find ourselves now in a very serious situation as we cannot get hold of our Property Manager. The rent and bills have not been paid and we don't even know if there is still a tenant in the property or not. The property management website is also no longer operating! All extremely distressing for us especially as he still has keys to our property. From both a financial and legal point of view this is a nightmare! Can anyone offer any help or advice as to what we can do please?
Hi. So sorry for the late reply and sorry to hear about your situation in Spain. This unfortunately is not an uncommon practice. If you are still looking for help, then please let us know as we can totally recommend our company lawyers, who will be able to help you.
Also if you have come to a point of wanting to sell your property, then again let us know as we can recommend a very good agent for you.
Our very best wishes
Hi there - thanks for your reply. As it turned out, the Property Manager has disappeared and we're not the only ones who've been left in a mess. Not sure if it was all a genuine scam or if he ran into difficulties - I guess we'll never know! Fortunately, we know someone over there who has been helping us out. We've had to have all the locks changed and the property cleaned and some repairs done but the good news is that we've got a new, long term tenant moving in next month. Doubt that we'll ever recover our losses but thankfully we can move forwards more positively now. As for lawyers, our current ones in Spain were useless in advising us on this and so we may be looking to change. We also need to sort out a Spanish Will - is this something you can help with? Thanks
