  1. A small but important point. You will not have a French address so will be unable to register the car or the caravan

  2. The form that you have seen on the internet is exactly the same as the form that you eventually receive in the post. It does want details of your employment with dates. I just completed it as best as I could remember. It also asked for your birth certificate(original). I sent them a certified photocopy certified by the Notaire.

    Re the France individual form which you complete so that you are not taxed in the UK

    I completed it, took it to my local tax office who stamped and signed it, gave me it back. I sent it to the address on the form and six weeks later received a letter from HMRC saying I no longer pay tax on the state pension.  Simple.

  3. Search has been stood down for the night resuming in the morning

  4. The car has been found

  5. I got mine today as well 124,13€ ,wife got the same.
  6. Works for me as well, and a little note to tell them you are not "a la charge" of the French SS if you have an S1
  7. The hand written bit does indeed state that a mortgage is not required however if a mortgage is required it is a clause suspensive in the compomis and that was what I was referring to.

    The reason for a 10 day cooling off period is a legal requirement in case you have a better offer else where. It is NOT a get out clause from buying the property if you decide not to take up that offer or any other offer.

    If you cannot get a mortgage within the time frame laid down in the compromis ,,usually 30 or 60 days, then one needs to prove that you could not get a mortgage, it is not sufficient to state "I did not like the terms so did not take up the offer"
  8. My take is this. The buyer signs a compromis as does the seller. This contains a clause suspensive that it is dependent on obtaining a mortgage. The buyer then has a 7 day cooling off period after which they can (but not a legal requiremet) pay a deposit ,10% being normal)

    Then the bank offers a mortgage with a 10 day cooling off .

    If the buyer decides not to take up the mortgage offer they cannot use that as an excuse not to go ahead with the sale so would probably loose the deposit.
  9. Am I being a touch cynical or does the OP smack of advertising.
  10. Would you not have to submit a tax return for 2012 in May 2013 thereby receiving your credit.
  11. Or ask them to transfer the money into your French bank account.
  12. We had no problem whatsoever,except from the UK end ,who made a right mess of our tax codes prior to us submitting the France Individual Form .We handed this form in to the impots in the Charente together with our Tax return and about 6 weeks later received a full refund from the UK.

    My friend lost it and started demanding that the mechanic be sacked, I told him that he was angry with the wrong person, its the guys in these garages that never get their hands dirty that do the dirty work.

    Not so, and I have told this story in another post.....

    I was in a Ford garage parts department and a mechanic came to the parts guy with a new set of plugs 'I did not need these on that car, can I change these for a set for a (cannot remember the model).

    I can only take this as being that the owner of the car that was being serviced would be charged for a set of plugs that the mechanic fitted to either his own car or a 'private'.

    Also just because you paid 200 euros does not mean that good quality components were fitted.

    Could there not be a simple explanation not involving diddling.

    Perhaps said mechanic had several jobs on at the same time ,one of which required the spark plugs he was asking for.
  15. Does all this analysis,questioning, assuming make one grain of difference with the facts. As sure as pigs don't fly the garage will shrug their shoulders and deny any responsibility .There is no point in getting all hot and bothered, just keep your powder dry for another day.
  16. I remember her fight back in the dark days of 2007
  17. Coincidence, we are at Comillas ,Cantabria at the moment and shortly moving to the camp site in the Picos de Europe.
  18. I think you have rather twisted the perception.

    Certain benefits are exportable, whether one was a French, German,Spanish or UK resident prior to moving to another EU country.

    It is all written into the EU Social Security legislation.

    For instance unemployment benefit would be payable at the French rate to a French resident going to the UK to find work

    http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/work/job-search/transferring-unemployment-benefits/index_en.htm

    In relation to Social security and health benefits

    The four main principles

    You are covered by the legislation of one country at a time so you only pay contributions in one country. The decision on which country's legislation applies to you will be made by the social security institutions. You cannot choose.

    >> Find out which rules apply to you

    You have the same rights and obligations as the nationals of the country where you are covered. This is known as the principle of equal treatment or non-discrimination.

    When you claim a benefit, your previous periods of insurance, work or residence in other countries are taken into account if necessary.

    If you are entitled to a cash benefit from one country, you may generally receive it even if you are living in a different country. This is known as the principle of exportability.

    Will get it too the correct department.

    I sometimes wonder whether some people should be allowed out of the country going by the angst shown on this forum about forms etc.

    No one is going to knock on your door in the middle of the night and drag you off to an interment camp or shoot you for filling in a form before the required date.
  20. Perhaps it is a conspiracy, on the other hand if you read the website information it is perfectly clear where you send the form to.
