Re: IMI

The first set of invoices have now been issued for payment during May. Looking on-line it also shows when the second payment will be due and this is shown as November.

Re: IMI

Just found this http://info.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt/pt ... amento.pdf on the Financas web site. It confirms May for the first installment but also says August for the second :?

IMI

I normally receive a bill for IMI in March that needs to be paid by the end of April. However I have just checked my account on the Financas on-line site and it says "Contribuinte sem notas de cobranca no Imposto Municipal Sobre Imoveis", i.e. nothing is due. The same is shown on my wife's account. ...

Re: Alojamento Local

If you are only allowing family to stay there then I would not consider it a commercial rental and just ask for a contribution to the running cost - if they are family you should be able to trust them to take care of the place and to chip in to the cost. For family it would never enter my mind to co...

Re: Water Heater Serivce

We used this guy when we had a problem with a Junkers heater. Old school technician - efficient, inexpensive, didn't speak much english but woman in the shop did. I suspect he would cover many makes. Worth a call.

Re: Portuguese wills

I should think this is something that might be affected by Brexit if you are UK based so it might be better to wait a couple of months.

Re: Wedding

If you got married at the church in Ferragudo there are excellent views outside and a great area for taking photos. You could then walk down the cobbled steps and paths down to one of the restaurants in town which between them offer all types of cuisine and price and which I'm sure would be pleased ...

Re: Child car seats

It might help other parents if you named the rental firm. Also did you make your requirement clear at the time of booking?

Re: Rising prices

Nowadays I find the restaurant reviews on Tripadvisor better as they are more searchable, have photos, direct links to maps, opening hours, links to the restaurants' websites and can be filtered. In addition more people can post to them. It's not a matter of apathy from members of this forum but rat...

Re: Diy materials

For basics I'd say Aki (subdiary of Leroy Merlin) in Portimão which also has a Maxmat next door.

Another option can be some of the large chinese warehouses that are popping up in many locations - they seem to do handtools, sealants and electrical items.

Re: Invoicing for villa rental

Am I missing something here? It sounds as though you are over complicating things. Yes Paypal is a good way of receiving payments and it gives your renters options in how they can pay including credit/debit cards but whatever currency you invoice in if it differs to your renters normal currency than...
