Dear Valued Stara Planina Properties Client,
Please can you help? We are in the process of drafting a book all about buying a property and living in Bulgaria. As part of the book we would like to insert short case studies of individuals relating to various topics (see below). We understand that not all the topics would be relevant to you but hopefully some will apply. As a guideline the text should be between 300- 500 but we would be happy to take less or more (if you have a long story to tell). If you wish to contribute please respond to this email including your name and where you live. If you do send anything we cannot guarantee it will be included and it might be slightly re- edited. By the way we want to hear both the positive and the negative. Here are the topics:
The Buying Process, Estate Agents, Moving to Bulgaria, Removal companies, Dealing with customs, Visas and Permits to Stay, retiring to Bulgaria, Setting up a business, Working as an employee, The Healthcare system, Bulgarian Banks, Utilities (ie electricity, water) supply and paying bills, Television, Telephone, Internet, Satelite, Mobile phone service, Postal services, Printed media, Petty Crime, The Police, Threat to women, Owning and buying a car in Bulgaria, Pets (ie bringing them into Bulgaria and daily care), Eating out, Bars, Shopping, Bulgarians and their characteristics, Learning the language, The education system, Wells in gardens, Septic Tanks, Swimming pools, Bulgarian Builders, Bulgaria Architects, Letting out your property, Property management, and of course any other issues of interest.
Thank you for your time,
