  • mj.de.araujo@iol.pt fax 291 957 089 edif. visconde #8 -r/c-C 9350-209 Ribeira Brava across from the Pingo Doce in ribeira brava
  • Lee, I think you better take a closer look at Anton's message. Don't make the mistake of many, wanting a property so badly they see only what they want to see. What good are 4/5 shares going to do you?
  • Lawyer: Maria Arauja Ribeira Brava 291 957 305
  • Hi, The red tinned coconut milk at Sa in Sao Martinho has nothing added except water. From the Philipines but I've forgotten the brand name.
  • Do you think he may be better off if he tells you this? I know of one accountant who writes articles and gives speeches on this theme constantly. I am not suggesting that your accountant is not upstanding - Just that there are a number of accounta…
  • Where are you getting your information?
  • Heard somewhere that there is a tax filing moratorium for expats who do not earn income here for 10 years. I figure that is the governments way of letting everyone know that in 10 years they are going to get serious about foreigners filing.
  • Hi Douglas, What constitutes a problem, who and how one goes about finding a solution, deciding whether one is needed at all, and whether a solution can be implemented and how/by whom, are all culturally influenced. The US reflects its own values,…
  • I think all prawns here are previously frozen - and there is no comparison. If anyone knows where you can get fresh and not from Thailand, I'd really like to know where that is. However, to import them for farming here is a whole other level of bur…
  • Both species would have to be imported into Madeira? Although all the benefits and possibilities you mention make sense in the U.S they do not go far or open doors here. Finding the land is your smallest challenge. Don't want to be discouraging b…
  • Hi Douglas, Do you have a European/Portuguese background? Doing business here is vastly different from the U.S and land prices all over Europe are much higher than agricultural U.S. land. If your aquaculture business involves live fish which are …
  • thanks Joao - can you give more detailed directions?
  • From what I can tell, chiropractic is not well developed in Madeira - and possibly not in most EU countries(?). It appears that there is not the rigorous extensive training that is required in North America in order to practice - and consequently th…
  • Hi Ever, You do not need an introduction from anyone. Just walk into the bank of your choice with your passport, money to deposit and a tax number. Be careful who gets you the tax number. You can get it on your own if you are a permanent resident.…
  • robinB - do you know about http://madeiraislanddirect.com/blog/ That is where all the updates have been - very extensive. This forum hasn't got the following that the blog does
  • Land automatically goes 50% to the spouse and the other 50% divided between the children - and so on down the line.
  • Theoretically the same, although I have found they changed between two occasions with different staff. Neither was problematic - just different.
  • Hi Depends on what you mean by very large. 1,000 liter is not hard to find - Mata I think but if not, they will know. Likely Casa Sao Antonio in Funchal Would not waste my time with the diy stores, They are more in-home and gardening things (sorr…
  • Hi Nora, Yes, they are free, as are ones in Estreito if they ever get going. The ones in R.B. are excellent but I think would be somewhat overwhelming to a total beginner. There should theoretically be similar ones in Funchal, as they are organiz…
  • Hi Philip I can't imagine buying without a solicitor! Who ever is saying that it is not necessary......... What area are you looking in? It will affect which solicitor you want.
  • Hi Angie, If you take the road from Arco up past the new sport center towards Loretto, half way up the hill there is a furniture store. Easy to miss as it looks much like a house until you are on top of it and look in the open door to see the furni…
  • Pupu - Calheta is Madeira's largest municipality as well as a small town, so to say that something is in Calheta can mean a lot of places. Odette and Phrost - a lawyer I would highly recommend is: Maria Arauja 291 957 305 She does have an email ad…
  • Hi Odette, Where is the land roughly? What is the closest village? Ellen
  • Hi David, You need a lawyer and an estate agent to help with these. Email me privately if you would like more information. At the top of your reply box is a choice "private messages". Just click on that. Cheers Ellen
  • Hi David, It usually comes before the foreclosure can go ahead. It is the (forceful) removal of the occupants from the house once they no longer own it and no longer have the right to live there. It is done by the proper authorities who are request…
  • Hi David, It means a house that is being sold because the owners could not keep up the mortgage payments. The bank or whoever loaned the money for purchase has taken the house and is selling it to recoup their money. Sometimes it means you can get…
  • Hi The numbers of Canadians will change I think. Madeira just does not get much press in Canada but the Algarve is starting to be a popular destination, so I think Madeira will be on the radar soon. Of the three couples here, 2 are from southern On…
