  1. Just spotted this, so my apologies. In answer to your question, on returning to the UK, I contacted DWP and requested re-instatement of my DLA Mobility. I had to fill out an application form, but only the parts that applied for Mobility. Two weeks later, I had the DLA Mobility re-instated, and back dated to the day I re-entered the UK.
  2. Thanks for all the comments !, however I think I will just wait until the Notaire opens on Monday and ask them !
  3. The Notaire has confirmed he will make the transfer on the morning of the signing. Britline have confirmed the funds would be clear within 48 hours of any transfer being made. My question is whether the Notaire can transfer directly to a UK based euro account, instead of to a French bank account.
  4. We are fast approaching the forthcoming date of sale for our house here in France and this evening, have just been talking with a currency transfer adviser from a large UK currency trader. It was our intention, and arranged with the Notaire that the funds for the sale would be transferred directly to my Britline account on the day. Following a day or two for the funds to clear, I would then have arranged for an international transfer of funds from my Britline account to the currency people. This obviously all takes time and even worse due to the Festive season, in order to obtain cleared Sterling funds in my UK bank account. The currency company have suggested that perhaps I could arrange with the Notaire to transfer the funds directly to them via their UK based euro account, thus saving a bit of time. This was something I had not thought of, and wonder if anyone who has sold their house in France recently has had the Notaire transfer funds directly to an FX company in the UK in euros like this? I would ask the Notaire, but they are shut for the weekend now, so wondering if anyone can answer this by Monday? Thanks in anticipation.
  5. Many thanks Quillan, when things are explained like that, it makes it easier to sort out the problem. The reason I was wanting clarity on this point is that we have sold the house and the new owners want the cameras, so I was in the process of making out instructions for them to set up the cameras to their system, which I am assuming will be using a Livebox sort out the ports. However, although I now understand things better, I don`t think that they will, and I will just advise them to buy a remote camera set-up. So again Quillan, thank you very much for your invaluable and easy to understand reply, it is appreciated.
  6. [quote user="Quillan"]Well you must have port 23 open else you won't be able to start a browser connection. You will also find 139 open as well as that is the Netbios of the router. My port scanner, from Radmin, does not show port 80 open. Give a link to your port scanner and I will try it to compare.[/quote] http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ This is the one I have been using. I tried Port 23 and it said it was closed, so maybe the port checker tool is c*** !
  7. In fact, if any reader is using multiple Foscam cameras on a Livebox 2, can they possibly send me a screenshot of what they have in their NAT/PAT tab? I am beginning to think that I have a duff Livebox !
  8. [quote user="Quillan"]You can set up a port for it. Access your LiveBox via your browser then go to LiveBox, Advanced settings and click on the NAT/PAT tab. You can either use an existing device or create a new one with the settings you want.[/quote] That is just the problem Quillan. I have done all that. The problem is that any port other than 80 and the whole thing does not work, hence I canot use my other existing devices ie 2 cameras, ie I cannot use the settings, ie ports that I want. Livebox says they are all closed, apart from 80.
  9.  Thanks for that Danny, unfortunately I have read them. Your first link is exactly how I have one camera installed, your second post is how to install multiple cameras on LAN. My problem is the Livebox configuration for multiple cameras. I cannot get any further than Port 80 on my Livebox, no other port numbers work, ie they are closed.
  10. Just a quick question of anyone on here in France, using an Orange Livebox 2 to configure more than one FOSCAM IP camera. I am having problems obtaining more than one live feed from a remote connection. It probably has something to do with the availability of open Ports on the Livebox, in that I can only use Port 80, all the other ports which Foscam users, and indeed most other Ip camera users can use, are closed (Port checking tool used). I have trawled the net for instructions, but cannot find anything specific to Foscam cameras, in France, using a Livebox2. I would also be interested to know if anyone here in France has used the Foscam remote set-up product. Any specific help appreciated.
  11. [quote user="Judith"]Stan, Whilst I think your actual question has been answered - did you agree to this change of date, as I thought it was always to be agreed between the two parties?  Obviously, if it is a question of loosing the sale otherwise, I can understand you may not want to cause waves, but it does seem a very odd day to chose .... even if France does only close down for the one day, it does close down ..... on Christmas Eve!!! [/quote] Well, this Notaire must close down at lunch time Xmas Eve, as today I have had the signing time confirmed as 9.30am !
  12. Strangely enough, the one month response time from Exportability did not seem to apply to me! and I received a reply today saying to just fill out the Mobility part of the claim form only.
  13. Thanks Judie and Loiseau, very helpful. Its abit annoying to think that the Notaire`s office is only next door but because of the close proximity the signing day is to Christmas, we may just not have the time to attend the signing. I had always thought that the representation aspect cost something like 1% of the sale price, and was susprised to read that it is free?
  14. [quote user="Mac"]I think that you can give the Notaire power to sign for you. Certainly when we bought our house here the sellers were not present(messy divorce and didn't want to see each other) and I believe the Notaire signed for them.[/quote] Thanks Mac, I don`t need the Notaire to sign for us, we can sign at the Notaire`s no problem. I am just wondering if we definitely have to be present with the other party on the scheduled day of signing. Getting a witness to sign for a party at the Notaires is fiscal representation and costs !
  15. Before I go and ask at the Notaire`s in a few days time, I would like to ask a question regarding the signing of the Acte de Vente. Basically I am selling our home here in France and this evening, the date of the signing of the Acte de Vente has been suddenly changed from mid December to Christmas Eve. I have been having a look onlnie regarding the meetings that the seller and buyer have in front of the Notaire when buying/selling property. Does the seller have to be present on the day of the signing? Can all the relevant seller documentation be signed at the Notaire`s the day before? The reason I ask is that due to the date of signing being changed, we would have difficulty in securing a travel booking for that day to return us to the north of Scotland in time for Christmas Day. The buyer is not bothered about checking the property on the scheduled day of sale as they have been regular visitors and "au fait" with everything. If at all possible we would like to leave France a few days before, having completed all the signing of documents etc,. so just wondering if anyone knows whether or not the seller HAS to be present on the scheduled day of the Acte de Vente.
