    Covid + passenger boards flight with fake certificate

    This can only be a partial picture, of course. We will never know or understand all the facts and the situation from his POV. What stands out is that the guy has the time, means and opportunity to go get his shots abroad, Visa included. He is also young and healthy. Given the choice of...

    Rentals. The most controversial points of the law that the Senate could approve

    In short, the whole point of investing in a place to rent is to make a huge effort to stay above the uncertainties of inflation and the rollercoaster of salaries that hardly ever raise above water level. Iz

    Rentals. The most controversial points of the law that the Senate could approve

    A rent tied to a salary is never a good solution in any sound mind. The renters income should not be the owners problem in a free market. A rent tied to the officially declared inflation is not a wise idea either. Used to work for Lavagna Jr. at Ecolatina. They lied for a living, starting with...

    What percentage of businesses try to rip you off in Argentina?

    Getting sick of Cablevision. Image quality sucks. Decent enough for a 28' TTL (tube) but not for any flat screen bigger than that. Air (free) signal is much much better, WTF with that? Advertising. Too much. Fibertel has gotten the bad habit of going belly up on holidays or the night before...

    Standing in line.

    Honestly don't think the space is insufficient. Pretty sure we argentinians ABUSE it as much as we can abuse each other and get away with it. Back in the day they used to say you could tell they were argentinians on board because the plane had luggage on top. Iz

    Standing in line.

    Being strictly logical, if someone wants your place, you should trade places and move to the end of the line. You are giving away your place AND YOUR TIME. Yours only. If you just let someone go first, then you are abusing the time of the rest behind you. That's rude and inconsiderate. Most...

    Consumer Protection Agency in Buenos Aires

    Then again, to have the aforementioned meeting, you need first 66.66% of the owners signatures. Jantango already mentioned the absence of a Council so the 2/3 in agreement is a must. THEN and only THEN you can proceed with yous simple majority of those present AND subject by the vote of those...

    Consumer Protection Agency in Buenos Aires

    Usually, you need 50 + 1 % of the property owners (% of ownership, NOT the number of votes), 2/3 majority or eventually - much less common - a simple majority of those present. It is determined by the Reglamento de Copropiedad I mentioned earlier. It is important to plan ahead if you want to...

    Consumer Protection Agency in Buenos Aires

    For starters, a call to 911 and / 147 when the lady was entertaining a gentleman would have been an interesting way to document the situation and wake up the others. Ley 941 and its modifications is your friend. Fire insurance is mandatory. No discussing it. Lack of it is a serious...

    Consumer Protection Agency in Buenos Aires

    Haven't read the whole story but it should be pointed out that any expensas debt not claimed formally by the Administrator will expire. The Administrator is responsible for her actions and inactions for two years after leaving. She can not raise her salary unless it is approved by a properly...

    Consumer Protection Agency in Buenos Aires

    FWIW, i listened to a seminar on how to become a registered Administrator. Not first hand, but paying close attention. The first thing you need is the Reglamento de Copropiedad and the Reglamento Interno if they sanctioned one. Any and both of them should be provided (for copying) by the...

    Looking to invest $1 million USD in Argentina - what should I buy?

    The train crawled its way to Buenos Aires. Too msny people crossing the tracks here and there, carrying large boxes of stolen goods. The train was packed and you could read the concern and fear on every face. It was a very dangerous situation. Shortly before reaching the J. C. Paz station the...

    Looking to invest $1 million USD in Argentina - what should I buy?

    The day «Chupete's» government fell, i was working at the Parque Industrial de Pilar when all the phones rang at the same time. The excreta had reached the proverbial fan. Everybody scrambled home. One of the company owners had a scheduled meeting with «el señor 5» so we jumped in his armored...
