Hi Shakeel,

Thank you for your reply to my message. I think your questions/observations to the scheme are all very valid and I did wonder to myself if it could be a way for the spanish government to gather information on people who rent out their properties so that in the future they could tax them or even back tax them!!!

The link does however work. I just tested it. Maybe you can google the website rather than click on the link.

Also an election is due on March 9th 2008, rental schemes such as this look good in the papers ;another bribe by Mr Shoemaker is to pay parents 2.500 euros per baby they produce, again it looks good in the papers but the paperwork to get this money is horrendous.

My advice beware of any goverment bearing gifts ,three months before an election.
