Have rogue workmen turned up at your door saying it is law that they update your gas installation?
Have you heard conflicting information about driving in Spain on U.K plates or license?
Are you unhappy with a service provided by a telecom or utility company and want to know how to reclaim?

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

Have you been asked to sign something by your community, landlord or campsite owner but are not sure if you should?

If you live on a campsite year round or indeed park your van there permanently, even if you travel back and forth it is important to know the new laws regarding “permanent structures on your plot”, the important differences between a residential and Tourist campsite and what rights you have against extortionate electric sub-contracting  and which specific infrastructure and facilities should be provided to you.

KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING AND WHAT YOU NEED TO SIGN

Moving to a foreign country is tempting, in particular Spain, but it can also be very daunting specially if you don’t speak the language or are not sure of the laws.

Did you know that bars can be fined in excess of 6000 if they employ staff without a legal contract.
The Spanish authorities are clamping down on businesses in the area checking for the following;

  • Town hall aperture license
  • Health & safety certificate
  • Employee contracts
  • Proof of tax and IRPF payments
  • Legally binding valid contracts*
    And the rules for running a business here are changing all the time!
    (*Your rental, leasehold (transpaso) or employment contract may be invalid if it is not provided in your own language, or dated..)
