Hi I am an spanish attorney
I am going to answer you now
Hello again, we chatted a few months ago
about NIE...now I have a rental question
do I need to repost or have you got it
Hi again, I am sorry, I do not remember ... :)
oh that's ok..
Well, if you have not a contract the owner has got a problem
You have a lot of chances against him
i asked her several times for a contract but she said no each time
You even could not pay at all
You could denounce him to AEAT spanish tax agency
Do not pay any more, he has very shorts ways to get his money
If he is not honest you do not have to be
I want to be fair and pay what is due but she is not being nice and I'm stuck here until 10th of April
Well, force him to be honest
What is the AEAT you mentioned?
Do not pay and treathing him with a denounce in AEAT
Its the spanish oficial tax agency
He has to pay taxes from the rent you pay
If he does not want to make a contract its because we manages black money
Beecause I like the apartment when I took it I made a lot of repairs for safety reasons..making sure all doors locked plus I replace the shower and water heater. She is a british lady who i now know did not know when I moved in,,,that she has a bad reputation
So I have been involved with something bad...do I need to be scared about this?
You have the key, if you do not pay he could do few things, and all of them expenses and very slow
No, You have cero problems
I use this apartment as a base as i have been traveling around Europe. I'm here two months at a time then travel for 4 to 6 weeks. It's like my home away from home
He has the problems not you
He is sure you are honest and he is taking advanced of it
Ok good. I'm only moving because this area has had a lot of break ins and I'm moving to a safer neighborhood...more secure
The link you gave me has instructions for contacting the tax office and they will help me..correct
Once you tell him that you are not going to pay anymore, and that you have beeb speaking witha lawyer, he will chance ... for sure
Do not denounce him at first moment, advice him to take just the money you want to pay and advice him that your lawyer has tell you to denounce him to AEAT if he makes problems
I have a friend here who works for the National Police in Santa Cruz. He and his wife were the ones who told me to use the deposit for last months rent. She has become really nasty and says that they lied to me that they only want to cause me trouble with her.....sorry I do not do well when I feel like I'm being treated
Your friend is right
I don't want to pay her anymore money...however if she gives me the utility bills and shows me I have used more than 50 euros a month in electric then i am willing to pay the difference by she won't give me the bills
You have all the power, you could do whatever. The worst part is for him
If you do not pay anything more he will got problems, not you
Ok...i will calm down.
I am sure if you deny all payment he will be very proactive to get an arregment with you
It sounds like I need to get a local lawyer though.so i will start asking around to find one
because he has the worse part in court
No, you do not need a lawyer
Why? He is the one who will get problems, not you
The rent is already paid. I paid heer through 10 march and was planning on using the deposit for the last month ... plus I have paid her the 50 euros for all four months left
Well, if the rent is paid, do not leave the place, do not give him the keys
if she continues giving me problems I just contact the AEAT office and ask for help...not a lawyer
And tell him that as long as he do not pay you you are not going to leave the place and you are going to denounce him at AEAT
rent and utilities is paid...I do have a trip planned out end of Feb coming back mid march
Good idea, no lawyer ( expensive )
AEAT its free
As long as you do not give him the key he could NEVER get into the propiety
Thank you...i feel much better. Is there anything else you think i should know on how to handle her?
Its your home, even with the rent unpaid he can no get into
Plus...to secure the place i had a dead bolt put on the front door and did not give her a copy of the key
And if he tries ( I dude it) to get into the propiety you could denounce him in the police because its a criminal action
Thank you very much...i do feel much better
I will be here if needed
thank you...i appreciate that
So, do not be scared, You do not have to
Her you could denounce her
