Re: If you have a caretaker, GET THEM UNDER CONTRACT!!!!

As a follow up, after the contract you need to have the documents required by IST on file signed by the employee. This is a loooonnnngggg document that specifies everything they do and how they are supposed to do it. W/O = exactly what admin indicated: the employee's word is what counts. Case: Caret...

Re: Worth Getting Citizenship?

We also took a look at it and the 20 day rule on the police certification killed it. I can't see how to pull that off with out serious assistance and coordination. If/when the Chile Gov. asks admin again about immigration issues, perhaps this will be one that gets mentioned. If we haven't been livin...

Re: Wanted: parcela

FWIW in 2007 The Muni of Puerto Montt had plans in place to pave the coastal road to Calbuco - which provides access to our ilque property - and we celebrated that road completed in 2015. There were also approved plans for Agua Potable Rural (APR) in the area in place in 2010 and we celebrated its i...

Re: Looking for the best City for my Family

We like Puerto Montt and the peninsula south of it - schools, healthcare, access to theater (Frutillar), etc. We like Vina as a place to visit. We've raised three children here (now 21, 21, and 17.5) and there is a good selection of primary and secondary schools - German School, American School, Pum...

Re: A LOT OF ENGLISH NOVELS FOR FREE

We can take all of them and donate them to a school library - only catch, have to ship. If no one steps up, and dropping off a box a TurBus cargo is an option, just let us know.

Re: R.I.P. Steve Anderson, of the Santiago Times

We attended the funeral on Sunday in Panitao. The service brought out the whole community - gathered in the community center. Steve's legacy of environmentalism - Patagonia Sin Represas & fight against Pocuro's housing development & for the Rio Trapen - were the focus of many comments. His immediate...

Re: Putting a fence

For perimeter fences we use our trees sometimes, but I've had good luck passing the word around the neighborhood and someone wants the work, 2500-3500 per 2M fence post - wood varies - delivered. Barbed wire, three lines minimum, wires installed on the side of the fence post that faces the owner of ...

Re: Rent out or sell half of duplex

Thanks for the post and insight - we've heard it is a lot of work. We've examined investment properties (apt/house) and I even met with someone in Sntgo who manages a large portfolio of properties, and his advice was - unless you can really screen who you rent to, full financial background check, re...
