Yes. Have been coming to Bulgaria for 13 years now and some things are slightly better but in general i think nothing much has changed or certainly not at the pace it should have done considering Bulgaria is part of the EU now. Time to look at Spain i think if i can sell the apartment here in Sozopol which will be difficult given the current situation.

The pace of change has been very slow and still is but remember that going from being controlled by the Russian state to the freedoms of the west is hard for some people. Do not sell your apt over maintenance issues because Spain has the same problem and indeed so has other countries so stay and fight your corner after all Bulgaria is a far better place than concreted Spain. Bulgaria also has lots of trees and Rakia.

All the best from Varna.

Thanks for the reality check banjo. Was at the sea park in Burgas yesterday and it is so green and beautiful which made me think again about Spain. It would be very difficult to replicate what we have here in the Burgas area or indeed Bulgaria in general. I think i would get bored with Spain very fast. The only advantage with Spain in my opinion is the infrastucture is better and menial tasks at banks etc get done much faster.I will keep the forum updated on the outcome of the maintenance issues here.

All the best from Sozopol

The issues have been solved for now. The land owner has came to a compromise. We will now pay by the size of apartment in a kind of square meter arrangement. Large apartments over 150m2 will pay 4000 lv Medium from 100m2 to 150m2 will pay 3000lv and small apartments up to 100m2 will pay 2000lv.

All the best from Sozopol
