Postal Service, Lawyers Etc.

Hello again
Thanks very much to the answers i got to other questions that i posted awhile back, i have just another 3 if anyone fancies helping me out.

1. Is the postal service any good ?, as when we move out we will need all our personal items forwarded on to us.

2.Have had mixed views on whether we need a lawyer for the purchase of the property, as the agent we have had viewings with said as long as we had the legal form ( i cannot for the life of me remember what he called it ) as too rightful owner etc then we need not bother with a lawyer.

3. Is the Bulgarian banking service getting any better as regards online banking is concerned ( direct debits etc ) ? would we be able to transfer from a UK bank to a Bulgarian bank via online transactions.

Thanks very much for any help that you may be able to give us.

Nigel.

Thanks for that Ian, i have to ask where was your planned destination ? we also think that it has become a real rat race in the UK so i think escaping that has to be beneficial.
Thanks again.

Hi Tracey & Craig
Sorry for the delay in replying, yes by all means give me a shout if & when you require any advice or work done. We are still chugging our way along on the selling process, which seems like it is taking for ever, it really is holding things up, but hopefully we will get there soon.

Kind Regards Nigel & Molly.

Hi Ian
Many thanks for the answers. i have 2 more for you or for anybody else who might like to help ( you know how it is when you are going to another country questions, questions, & more questions)

1. Would you say that there is any benefit from having a private medical insurance ?
2. Is there any way of getting british tv ?

Many thanks.

p.s what is the name of your village Ian ? & i take it that you certainly made the right move by going to Bulgaria ?

Nigel.

Just AFew Questions About Life In VT

Hi
We are new to the forum as from last week so hello ! We have just got back from a trip to VT with a view to purchase a property in one of the surrounding villages ( which i must say has beautiful views) we did really like 3 properties, so when the sale of the UK house goes through we are coming out to purchase, so if somebody doesnt mind i just have a few question.
1. What is the medical side of things like ?( as you never know when you may need it) would you recommend any private health companied' if so which ones?
2. Would you suggest we keep a UK bank or transfer over straight away to a Bulgarian bank ? ( i think the Bulgarian banks give a fair amount of interest or so i have been told)
3.What are the internet connections like ?
4.We have heard a little bit about snakes & scorpions, just wanted to know if they are a major problem especiaaly as we may well end up in the countryside?
Many thanks to anybody who may be able to help.

Thanks again Nigel.

bluehawaii posted on the thread Moving to veliko tarnovo; any advice? on the Bulgaria forum

Hello
Just joined this forum last week, so have a few questions if thats okay.
We have just got back from VT with a view to purchasing a property in one of the surrounding villages, we found 3 properties that we really liked, so when the UK property has sold, thats it were off to beautiful Bulgaria.
The questions i have (if you dont mind) are what would you recommend as far as a health insurance is concerned & are they very good, any recommendations ? ( because you never know when you might need it ) would you keep a UK bank or would you transfer straight to a Bulgarian one ?,have heard a bit about snakes & scorpions in the summer, are they a major problem, especially as we may well be in the countryside? ( which i must say is beautiful )& how is the internet connections ?
Many thanks for any help that anybody may be able to give us.
Nigel.
