Energy Performance Certification
After 1st June 2013 every domestic property for sale or rent needs to have an Energy Performance Certificate including ones that are currently rented out or For Sale.
For properties currently for sale or rent this means you will have 7 days from 1st June 2103 to apply for your certificate. If you have applied and can show you have applied within the 7 days you will have an extended period of 21 days giving a total of 28 days after which you need the certificate. For properties new to the market whether for sale or rent you will have to have the certificate in place before your property can be advertised.
The requirement has now been approved by Royal Decree (5th April 2013)
Our Website is changing.!
Over the coming weeks, the LaTorreOnline website will undergo a major upgrade and, at the same time, will see significant design changes - resulting in a cleaner, crisper, modern, dynamic, powerful and innovative layout.
The Project has been named Essential.
The need for a major redesign has been brought about by the ever-increasing membership and visitor traffic, in addition for the need to increase visitor interaction with our website.
Essential will allow us to grow and keep ahead of demand.

EasyJet - Hand Luggage changes
EasyJet has introduced new cabin bag rules that will guarantee passengers with hand luggage no bigger than 50 x 40 x 20cm can keep their bag with them in the cabin.
The current maximum size permitted, 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, will remain unchanged, but passengers with a bag of this size may find that they have to put their bag in the hold if the flight is busy.
The policy changes, which come into force on 2 July, will mean that passengers who want to ensure their hand luggage is permitted in overhead lockers, or under the seat in front of them, will need to buy a cabin bag that meets the reduced dimensions.

‘Microsoft’ virus - phonecall scam
If you receive a phone call claiming to be from ‘Microsoft’ or someone claiming to work on their behalf, telling you that you have a virus on your computer which they will help you fix over the phone, It Is A Scam. Hang up the phone, do not let them have remote control access to your computer and do not give them any money.
This scam has been quietly doing the rounds in the UK and Ireland since at least 2009 but it appears to be on the rise. The scam is better explained HERE in our Computer Corner section (LOGIN REQUIRED)
We now have a new facility whereby ANYONE who wishes to play a round or two of golf and is looking for a partner or partners to play with, can view requests here.
It doesn't matter which course you wish to play - it's not restricted to La Torre.
If you are looking for a golf partner - or even offering to be one - simply complete the online form, and we'll do the rest.!
