The committee has now confirmed the situation about basura payment. Below is the explanation from our Gestor.
|Today I heard from Ana Belen, our Gestor, that all residents who pay IBI will have to pay their own basura and water bills.
However, if you are a pensioner receiving a limited income, you may apply to have a 50% reduction in these bills. If you pay though a domicilio, which is through your bank, a further 5% reduction is available for everyone.
To gain this 50% reduction, you must go to the 1st Floor Catastral Office, in the Town Hall building in Plaza de Villa with copies of the following documents:
Escritura ( Title deed of house)
Documents showing annual income of all residents in the house (eg Tax forms)
Details of bank accounts through which bills will be paid.
These documents will be sent to Malaga and individual house owners will be contacted. It depends on annual income, as to whether this discount will apply.
This is not good news, but we are hoping to be able to get a better basura collection in the future.
