Hi all,

My wife and I have recently purchased a holiday home in Periana - yes I know, timing is not the best! But, we fell in love with the place and so made the jump at the end of March. Due to COVID we have not been able to travel out there yet, but the bills are starting to arrive!

Can someone please explain what the 'Patronato de recaudacion provincial' charge covers and is this a monthly charge? My understanding is that this covers the water, plumbing and water treatment - at least that's what my solicitor explained. If this is a water bill, is it estimated, fixed or based on consumption - in which case I guess they read a meter at some point?

Is there a way to set up an account where you can access your bills and charges online or does that need to be done in person at the Town Hall?

Loads of questions to ask about utilities, but dont want to bombard you all at once. If anyone could offer advice in this area it would be much appreciated.

All the best

Andy

Hi Andy

We bought a small house in La Vinuela 2 year ago and all of  our bills are set up for direct debit through the bank , some where done by our lawyer others where done by a very helpful man in our  local town hall ,

We have

water bill it is taken 4 times a year you pay a set fee

rubbish , is taken once a year

rates / council tax once a year ...

then  we have non resident tax

this is once a year ,but you have to get someone to work that out  we used the local Gestoia but  you can use your lawyer  there are cost for this service .This has to be paid by December

electricity is every 2 months  again standing charge etc ,, direct debit ,

I hope this is of some help to you good luck to you

Thanks for the response Jim. I have received two debits from my bank account at the beginning of July and August, each carries the title 'Patronato de recaudacion provincial' and the receipts state Periana Agua/Otras Tasas - so even with my pigeon Spanish I assume this is my monthly water bill. Perhaps I ought to get back onto my solicitor for an explanation!
