Re: Valuation

I've just had valuations done for buying a house - between 250 and 350 leva depending on the size of the house. If you don't get any better ideas, call the local Raiffeisen and ask for the valuation companies that they recommend - I suggest Raiffeisen because they actually give you the valuation rep...

Re: BG NHS cover

It has to be backdated to the date that they arrived - the law used to be up to two years but now its up to five. Its not much though - about 15 euro a month I think. I've just had to make some back payments as I received by permanent residency in 2013 but only paid insurances from 2015. Cost me 850...
