Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By Jo Pugh

THE SPAN­ISH trea­sury has in­creased prop­erty tax (IBI) in Teu­lada-Mo­raira by 5% to ad­just es­ti­mated prop­erty val­ues to equal that of ac­tual val­ues.

This mea­sure is be­ing ap­plied to a to­tal of 2,452 mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in Spain. How­ever, dur­ing the last town hall meet­ing Teu­lada-Mo­raira coun­cil unan­i­mously ap­proved plans to lower prop­erty tax, so prop­erty own­ers will not suf­fer any in­crease at all.

Car­los Linares, mayor of Teu­lada-Mo­raira, ex­plained that not only does he want to avoid Teu­lada-Mo­raira own­ers pay­ing one sin­gle euro more in prop­erty tax, but he is even work­ing on be­ing able to of­fer a con­sid­er­able tax re­duc­tion next year.

Le­gal ad­vice

Teu­lada-Mo­raira coun­cil­lor Daniel Ibanco has an­nounced that a le­gal ser­vice for young peo­ple will be avail­able dur­ing 2017.

Le­gal spe­cial­ists will ad­vise on all kinds of is­sues such as di­vorce, sep­a­ra­tion, in­her­i­tance, mort­gages, prop­erty is­sues, en­trepreneur­ship and em­ploy­ment, le­gal ad­vice for pro­fes­sion­als, jobs or trainee­ship out­side of Spain, and all types of med­i­cal care op­tions.

In Teu­lada, the ser­vice is avail­able on Fe­bru­ary 3, March 3, April 7 and May 5 at the Youth In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre in Teu­lada from 17.00 to 20.00, and in Mo­raira on Jan­uary 27, Fe­bru­ary 17, March 24, April 21 and May 19 at the Se­ni­eta Hall, also from 17.00 to 20.00. The ser­vice will con­tinue un­til De­cem­ber.

Coun­cil­lor Ibanco was very pleased with the ser­vice last year, which had been used by nu­mer­ous peo­ple. Any­body in- ter­ested should book an ap­point­ment in ad­vance by cal- ling Teu­lada town hall on 96 574 0158 ex­ten­sion 1804.
