Hi everyone & happy new year.

We have just purchased a property but it has no postal address ! 

Any advice on how to register a property for the postal service would be helpful.

Thanks 

Chris

We had the same problem in Conil.  The PO is not the place to start.  The town hall is.  You need to get them to register the address.

We got a PO Box and it worked great.  About €80 a year.  They even text us when something arrives.  Bit of a pain but.........

Our application for a 'real' address is still pending after 18 months.  On the other hand its not snowing and the wine is cheap, so life will go on without a real address.

Hi Richard

Many thanks for the reply very helpful , will have to get a move on if it takes that long !! Good to hear it's not too much of a problem without one and cheap enough.

Happy new year.

Hi Chris. I can’t help you with your question but I wanted to welcome you to Arcos. I’m one of the administrators of the local expat WhatsApp group. If you join the group you may meet some new people and also find a lot of answers to questions. Please send me your phone number and I’ll add you to the group. But you need to have the number affiliated already to the WhatsApp app.
We’re a US couple and have lived here I. arcos on and off for about 7 years. I’d love to meet up for a coffee when you settle in.


regards, Kippy and Steve Elsemore
