Our water has been cut off even though all bills have been paid and have receipts.  Is there an emergency number to call

Interesting post, are you aware all unity bills Bills Spain are levied as a lean on the property, 'not on the person' using it? Something  has gone wrong, in your case, are you sure, regardless when purchased, the property was fact debt free?

There were no outstanding debts on the property when we purchased 13 years ago and there are none now. The problem was resolved quickly by contacting our mayor. Thanks for your reply

Glad to hear that Jane, any ideas who who can crack 'exchange driving licences for resident Brits' who can no longer drive in Spain? lol  

That will be a huge problem in future for all Brits moving here, perhaps needs some Mayor pressure for that.

Just turn it back on outside until dispute resolved, against your human rights to turn water off (well in uk anyway)
