Questions Asked

We have a farmhouse in Le Marche (Fermo) and want to change some elements of the swimming pool - new lining, new stairs, new tiles surrounding it and a new filtrage system which means creating a new technical area.

Ciao, we have finally had the request from our local comune for the payment of local taxes and, separately, the rubbish collection for the property we bought almost two years ago. We are in Fermo in Le Marche.

Does anyone know where you can buy old stone for building a low bit of garden wall (20cm high). The kind to use with mortar, not a dry stone wall per se. Not sure of the name for such a place - a stone supplier rather than a quarry itself.

Thanks very much Greta. In fact, the work is underway. We did get a geometra we have used before - when we built a terrace - in the end, more to get the lower tax rate than anything else. The work on the existing pool does not involve building any structure, the pump/filter system will go in a technical area in a hole in the ground. The cadastral footprint is unchanged. I suppose my attitude was shaped by the fact that I trusted the workmen and the pool company to do the work well without needing an extra person involved. The works really are cosmetic and practical rather than radical. I appreciate your offer of help though, thank you again.

Thanks very much. In which case, our bill sounds about right. I'll just have to ask them if we were liable for IMU during building renovations. I appreciate your help. Best wishes.

That's very kind of you, thanks. It's actually to go around a gas tank to prevent cars driving into it (!)  in our driveway. We can't get out of doing it if we want gas delivered again, so trying to do it without it becoming a nice little earner for the geometra, the stone-mason etc etc! Appreciate your advice. Best wishes.
