  1. Hello

    If we are allowed to come on vacation from the UK to France this summer, can anyone respond on whether two families from the UK can share a gite? Is this against the rules on social distancing currently? I'm assuming it is.

    Thank you.

  2. Hello

    If we are allowed to come on vacation from the UK to France this summer, can anyone respond on whether two families from the UK can share a gite? Is this against the rules on social distancing currently? I'm assuming it is.

    Thank you.

  3. Thanks Gluestick, RicandJo.

    So the exchanger problem of a leak internally is not the cause?

    I've looked at the picture and my expansion vessel is 'slimmer' than this picture. Would I need the precise replacement for my boiler, or are they all universal?

    Also, my current vessel, sits in a holder on the back of the boiler casing. The bricodepot one would just hang off the flexible braided pipe!
  4. Hi,

    Our oil burning boiler pressure keeps rising.

    from cold we charge the system with about 2 bar pressure and after about 2 or 3 hours of working, the pressure on the manometer guage has risen to 3 bar before the valve releases the pressure. (manually or automatically)

    can anyone identify why this is happening? One suggestion was that the copper coil exchanger has a hole in it which takes water from the hot tank increasing the pressure in the central heating sealed system.

  5. Thanks,

    we do use Eparcyl everytime we visit.

    On the point of refilling with water, is this necessary to maintain a balance in the first (or second) tank?

  6. Our property has not had the Fosse emptied for over 6 years to our knowledge, so probably long overdue.

    When the waste has been removed, does the fosse need to be filled up with cold water to maintain any natural starting position again?

    Should we expect the waste disposal company to do that, if necessary.

    Our house is a holiday home, so not continuos usage all the time (unfortunately!).

    Thanks

  7. Thanks for the replies. It sounds as if a 'recommendation' is an ideal way forward.
  8. Hi,

    I need some plumbing work performed from a local plumber. Is there any guarantee I should ask for either at the devis stage, or upon completion, against the standard of his work? By having a valid SIRET number, (for plumbing) does this protect the vendor from bad workmanship?

    Thank you

  9. Hi,

    On the front page of the Declaration Modele H1 form from the Impots Locaux, question 3.33 asks for information about "loans from the state or other organisations" against your property.

    Do I need to declare my UK mortgage loan against our maison secondaire? 

    We do not live in France and the reason I have been sent the H1 is to declare that our new velux's and upstairs bedroom have been completed and I guess I need to be re-assessed for taxe Fon & Hab.

    Thanks 

  10. We have completed some internal renovations to our first floor bedroom which we received permission from the DDE. The original request was to make good a 'soil flooring' and use the loft bpace as an extra bedroom.

    As part of this first floor bedroom renovation, we wish to add a new bathroom adjacent to the bedroom.

    Do we need to obtain permission to fit a new bathroom?  There are no external windows to be added, it essentially is an 'en suite' addition.

    The mairie has responded with a 'yes go ahead', but just want to make sure that this internal work will not come back to bite me.

    NB: I had to declare to the tax office the new space created so they could uplift my taxe F & H.

    Thanks

  11. Hi Will,

    No,  just a holiday home, no rental or interest from other assets

  12. Hi,

    I have a property in Normandy for the last two years. I work in the UK and I am tax resident in the UK. The house in Normandy is our maison secondaire.

    Do I need to fill out any French tax return forms to declare this position?  Also, what about wealth tax?  I understand I should be exempt as my assets in France are well beneath the €760,000.

    Should I be filling out a tax return only to prove I should not be paying any tax  (outside of taxe f and taxe d'h)?

    Thanks

  13. Hi,

    No charges from last year, just the standard 1 page statement, giving the average 'rental value'  (1345)and then a series of percentages which when added make the figure of €316.

  14. Hi,

    the €316 euros is just the taxe d'habitation, i have the TV also added (my total taxe d'h is €432 this year)
