This weekend saw some unprecedented rainfall in the Muria region and from yeterday we bagan the clean up operation although a lot of the roads were closed so access was limited.
Resort managers are today visiting as many properties as possible (access permitting) and may have already reported to affected owners if you haven't heard anything please bear with us and we will contact you.
By tomorrow if you have not heard anything then you have no dmage and nothing to worry about.
Our new office that we wanted to announce has been affected and we spent most of the day yesterday and today cleaning the mess up and now we wait on the insurance company representative to let us know the next step.
We's like to thank those clients that contacted us after seeing the situation on social media to ask if we were OK...it really meant a lot to the whole team.
Keep an eye on our website and FaceBook page for updates.

IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTICE FROM THE COMMUNITY ADMINISTRATORS
Drivers who are seen to park causing obstruction, endangering the safety of other road users and pedestrians, parking in disabled bays when not registered to do so, not observing the one-way traffic system where it applies and damaging community property can expect to receive a dununcia notice by our security staff which may result in a fine demand from the Local Police.
Drivers using rental cars can expect any fine demand to be collected from their credit card account they used when completing their rental contract.
The Police authorities may also take immediate action when they visit which is on a daily basis.
Drivers are asked not to park on grass verges as this damages the irrigations system laid beneath the grass causing it to be damaged.
The resort roads are now part of the police vehicle radar program and their mobile radar vehicle will be visiting the resort on a regular basis.
As such, drivers who exceed the resort speed restriction of 30kph can expect to receive a fine or even a summons. The appropriate notices warning drivers have now been erected. Offending drivers may be stopped for their details at the resort exit gates causing their delay. Drivers are asked to observe all traffic regulations and drive safely.
If you are a user of a golf buggy, please ensure you follow the rules of the golf operators and restrict their use to the golf course and those areas enabling you to excess its different parts. Due to their improper use, and in co-operation with the golf operator security staff have been instructed to stop golf buggies which are being driven outside these areas. In such cases the key to the buggy may be retained and returned to the golf shop or at the very least you will be required to drive and return the buggy to the golf course.
So if you do not want your game to be delayed please ensure you follow the rules of the golf operator at all times.
Owners please note that all dogs when in public areas are to be kept on a leash. If your dog is listed as a dangerous breed it should also be muzzled. Also those exercising their dog must clean up their excrement and dispose of it safely. Denuncia notices will be served on any owner or tenant who chooses not to follow this request which may result in a fine demand from the Local Police.
Formal arrangements have been made for any stray dog to be captured and removed off the resort to a dog rescue centre. In cases when a dog has been captured which can be identified to an owner on the resort, the owner will be advised where they can collect their dog.
USE OF MM2 SWIMMING POOLS
There is now a wrist band scheme operating on MM2 Community Pools. Only MM2 owners and their guests are entitled to use these bands. Any person not wearing such a band will be asked to leave the pool area by security who are regularly patrolling the pools throughout the day.
MM1 OWNERS AND THEIR GUESTS ARE NOT ENTITLED TO USE ANY OF THE MM2 SWIMMING POOLS.
To obtain free access to the Town Centre pool which is in private ownership, persons need to show their personal Community Owners Club Card. Which entitles two people to enter. Without the card an admission fee will be applied by the Town Centre operators.
Those causing annoyance to neighbours by omitting excessive noise especially after midnight will be asked to stop by the security staff. Continued nuisance or in the case of repeat offenders the Police will be summoned and the owner or Tenant can expect a fine to be issued.
OWNERS RENTAL ACCOMMODATION HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM THEIR GUESTS OF THE ABOVE.

Well it’s that time of year again where we need to start asking our clients that use our service regarding the 2015 non-resident tax declaration. If you do use our service we will contact you by email soon.
If you don’t please contact your assessors or solicitors whichever has been doing this for you in the past. They may contact you later in the year as you have until December 2016 to pay it. If not you should chase them as you are responsible for this ludicrous tax charged to non-residents property owners in Spain. However of you do not delare you could be fined considerably.
Should you like to discuss our service for the tax declaration please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact form on our website in the part that says “CONTACT US”. We can explain the charges and what you need to do.
Unlike most property management providers we are able to offer many more services that make owning a property in the Murcia region easier! The reason for that is that we are legal and therefore know the law and what you are resposnible for.

Many of our UK clients are contacting us with various questions about what will happen now.
Well the immediate answer is nothing. The UK took a referendum and voted to leave the EU but until the process of exit is put into place probably from October 2016 onwards; we will still have a couple of years of disentanglement where the exit strategy will be implemented.
My opinion is not to panic but rather to wait and see what this all brings; hopefully the new Prime Minister (and in my opinion a new BREXIT government) will keep us all in the loop, informed of the next steps and what it all really means for owners of property in the EU (specifically for our clients property in Murcia).
With no actual elected government in Spain until Sunday; Interim Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has called for “calm and serenity" to Spanish citizens in the UK and British citizens in Spain.
For now we are seeking advice from professional advisers over here and in the UK and they are all saying to allow the dust to settle and wait for the formal notification; the implementation of Article 50 informing the EU that the UK is officially leaving the EU.
Whilst I voted to REMAIN for obvious reasons, we have to accept the outcome of the referendum and get on with our lives and hope that the effects of this LEAVE vote will not be as bad as it could be and also that the Spanish government realise the value of the British investors in Spain and our worth to their economy.
So for now remain calm and let us monitor the next few days/weeks/months.
Any important infiormation will be publicised on our website so please keep an eye on it.

Thanks to the Lee & Dey families for your kind words
"We have been very fortunate to have Joy and Bill Kundalia at Villa Solera as our Key Holders and Property Managers for over 10 years now.
We are delighted with the consistent quality of service provided, and the meticulous care taken to ensure our guests enjoy their stay. The 5 Star reviews we regularly receive on Trip Advisor are testament to the care and attention to detail that Joy and Bill alway provide.
From sourcing and managing the installation of all our furniture, white goods, fixtures and fittings when we first purchased the property, to the regular and ad hoc inspections Joy undertakes (and the email updates that follow) our Townhouse on La Torre has always been well cared for and expertly managed.
Put simply, nothing is too much trouble for Joy and Bill to deal with.
We therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Villa Solera's services".

- Happy clients
Its always great to receive a testimonial so thanks Bart & Maryke:
"Looking out for a little place in the sun we were brought in contact through a mutual friend with Bill
Kundalia of dream casas and villa solera services.
He showed us different options appropriate towards our needs and financial info. We found a nice
apartment in an ideal location for us and our family.
Bill brought us in contact with all the right persons concerning documents and legal affairs. We can
highly recommend his professional way of leading us through our foreign purchase.
Villa Solera Service stands even for much more than this, they helped us with furniture, the white
goods, lightening so we could, even when we were not in Spain, we can be sure that everything was
ok. All our questions were answered and we got a lot of good advice.
Bill and Joy Kundalia are also our key holders and we couldn’t be more pleased with this. On a regular
basis Joy visits our property in Spain to see if everything is ok and even before we arrive she makes
our home ready for our holiday.
We are very satisfied with the way everything went along."

Now is the time to try and enjoy the restaurants of Torre Pacheco with summer well and truly over the local restaurants really come into their own.
Only 5 minutes from Mar Menor Resort and 15 from La Torre Resort, the "El Huerto del Azafran" is one that we recommend. Here you will meet Santiago (the owner) who will guide you through the fantastic menu of home-made local cuisine in English explaining every course including "What the locals eat" allowing you to try foods you may never attempt because you “don't know what it is”.
Santiago and his team are extremely accommodating and offer a great level of service in a wonderful location. The restaurant is classy and with prices that won't break the bank you just have to give it a go.
From the various rice dishes on offer to the meats, fish and sea food plus an extensive wine list with some local wines and cavas (the local cava I tried was better than some Champagne I’ve had!) followed up with your choice of Copas*.
They also have a “Menu del Dia” (Menu of the Day) during the week days and special ones at the weekend which are all very reasonable and in the evening you can choose the evening menu or just leave it to Santiago and his team to guide you through the “A la Carte” menu.
*Mixers G&T etc.
