Life / I'm British in Poland and I think that it's time to go back to the UK! [240]

...don't let underlings tell you that you have no rights, the bosses know all the rules and regs, they have just been able to bully the peasants for so long

Agreed couple years back uzad skarbowa summoned me for a company I had opened in 2000 and never did anything with ir ot filed tax returns for it.First interview they kinda threatened me and told me to get my own translator.After consultation with pals I went back for second interview and furiously told them that I am EU resident and I only speak english and they have to get the translator.Which they did for 3rd interview.

Law / The right to own guns: would you support such legislation in Poland? [1651]

the only people I'd need a handgun against are those who would use their own, likely illegal handgun to accost me in some way with. any other weapon it would take a big man with equal skills to take me down.

I agree with you Ry but here you have to keep a low profile and dont let your passion rule you.do what one can legally and live with it.This is a issue like abortion and family immigration so...........NO COMMENT. FLOW WITH THE FLOW.

Since noone answered you...Polish govt would welcome there stay till they probably can get any kind of investment visa or such...and poles will welcome that.:)

DO the training though, can't be too safe.

LOL,the training classes are useless mostly chatting about hunting and almost no safety taught.They dont even teach you to put child safety locks on your guns..go figure that.Mostly is who likes who and who knows who.

With a gun in their hands they became 'powerful' Guns have that effect on people

Not when they are unsure that other party might have a gun also?so it leads them to behave rather then show there packing of power.And one doesnt pull out a weapon to show like police that they might shoot...rather in personal life one pulls out a gun to shoot to kill for self protection, not to scare or warn.

Real Estate / The current property boom in Poland is a bubble [342]

How many other (legal) investments allow you to lose 200%, 300% of the money you put in?

Stock Market!

You do talk rubbish, the limit on farm/ agro-building land is until 2016 and you need a permit until then.

Was not my point anyway if you read it correctly.Any way why is it cheaper to buy where foreigners dont need a permit?If a foreigner likes the property and wants it so badly can get a permit in 2 months or open an company and buy it...so why is it cheaper as u say to buy where they need a permit?When I was not a citizen(since I am from a non EU country) I had to get permit even to buy an commercial property or land anywhere in Poland or wait for 5 years after my permanent card to buy it,which is rather expensive and time consuming.

Law / The right to own guns: would you support such legislation in Poland? [1651]

I suspect the hunters in your club can refuse you.My brother in law has spent years getting his license.

Yes the can only if they suspect some troubles.They have meetings almost everymonth.I went to one in Siedelce in a bar where they were all like ole time commis watching who goes for a beer or tea or coffee.All your actions etc are carefully watched and consent given for renewal but just for shot Guns to hunt.LOL one cant be shooting deer and bear or quails with a MODEST PISTOL!

I can understand guns for hunting but a pistol no.

Now here I agree with you with my heart!

And I will do all that is required to legally obtain a modest pistol

Agreed 100%(not with my heart)...But if you in Poland, I do expect you to live among the people who own modest weapons like yourself and STAY THERE.aND WE WILL WATCH THE SURVIVAL OF THE BEST:))

PS:Couldnt resist to add Pistols should be allowed to keep for English teachers only.!(Wink Pawian)

Merged: Anyone know good health insurance in Poland besides the govt one that takes ages

I tried medicove /damian quotes they quoted me 470 for a mnth gurantted for a yr minus 15% discount if paid all at once.I hear from pals they will jack up more every year and other insurances will not accept pre existing conditions for an year,as I am mildly diabetic which will ofcourse grow by age.

Life / Why in Poland most people use cloth sponge to wipe off windscreen? [23]

Hey, it seems nobody is able to explain why the law forbids running your parked car. ???

I forgot whats the exact name its called.I think because of pollution in states.Some convenience stores as some people tend to leave cars running to go get a quick bite or some sit in the parking lot reading,sipping coffee smoking or scratching lottery tickets in a running car.(running I mean is a started car).just came in mind its called idling! there are signs everywhere "NO IDLING"

Real Estate / The current property boom in Poland is a bubble [342]

it is not my ridiculous definition. it is a definition that has been posted here, time and time again by wikipedia. not by me. If it deflates at a slow rate then it is, by definition, not a bubble. a bubble pops. hence the name bubble. so if once the market hits its peak price then slowly declines it is not a bubble. which is what it is doing now.Poland is not experiencing a bubble.

Exactly my point! you explained them:))

Poles should enjoy the right to won guns, unfortunately it is not so.

Infact not true.Yes it is a bit harder to own a gun in Poland,but I think its good and above all Poles are not much inclined towards guns.As for I remember one has to join a gun club,take safety classes pass a stupid test and one can get a shot gun for hunting.Guns I dont know what the procedure is as this year I will start for hunting.If I ever buy a place in a rural area I would like to own couple for my self defense.

I don't really know why prices are so high in Poland.

We in my la la land circle think because Poland was/is a cash economy and foreigners trying to make a big profit didnt help either.Not to mention banks loaning out 30% more then your upraised property prices.

Good thing you are not a doctor.

lol like the docs who use colonoscopy to remove tonsils:))))

Law / Applying for a PIO card (Person Of Indian Origin) at the Indian Embassy in Warsaw [11]

2 months and at least 15 phone calls, with reminders and many polite requests thrown in. Disgusting to note that despite the heavy documentation fees the speed of processing and delivery does not match up

You are very lucky bud! The NY consulate takes minimum of 6 months,no matter what they say on website.Oh! all phone calls are automated as well.And a NYC police car is always parked in the vicinity if called by the embassy to arrest people who try to argue with them..

Did you consider a commercial then a residential?lots of properties yield 8 to even 10% of your investment and less hassle dealing with them renters?plus the silent property rise in 15 yrs or more is 10% also.While residentials dont have ROI over 5%?

Or buy where foreigners are banned from buying without the permit.

lol! thats not the case anymore dude.Poles also have more or compatable money to beat you if you implying that they have more money to raise prices.

sorry, but it is important. There is a huge difference between a steady decline and a bubble bursting. And that is basic economics.

How simple can you explain them in english the differnce in price decline and bubble esp if they english teachers............

It doesn't follow the rules of the rest of the world....otherwise it would have exploded by now.

I agree because poles have more holding power(I think)then the banks who are choking(by the regulations) already to lend and make money(I read somewhere...3 banks got fined for bad lending practice).Just like any other country they will lend again and people will pay more to get what they want,even if it will be 50 year credit and dont forget the cash economy still exists in poland(like everywhere) esp when the sale of real estate occurs.

Travel / Starbucks in Poland? [149]

did I hit the spot? dont worry batty boi dont take it personally just how you take rejection by simple topic of coffee.Its ok keep up buying them t-shirts for your kids that you mentioned in some post and púrn sites will linger in your brains.Any way if you think starbucks coffee is expensive BTW its only 6.90 pln for a tall cup and 2 pln for refill in a new papercup(which I like for my coffee).

Go to your favourite prn sites to get them.

OH I forgot to mention how did you figure that?Polish moment...jeeeeez!

Real Estate / The current property boom in Poland is a bubble [342]

we are actually neither. and we bought in 2009/2010.

I actually 75% disagree on that as some places are still selling for same or MORE,all mine were bought before 2008 and are commercial never paid over 6800pln a sq metre,was offered till 11000,and some the offer is still there(mainly cuz the neighbour wants to expand) and some are down to 9000.Practically in Poland one can hang around with even vacant property longer as the real estate taxes are negligible and chenze is affordable.Any way the crisis has just started and it will with my 20 yrs in real estate,it will level off in around 2015 and boom/bubble will start and will be at its peak in 2020,it infact is time to buy in the USA where the banks are choking(EG.last 4/5 years i stopped getting even 1 letter for credit card offer from 10/12 letters and now i get 4/6 letters with credit card offers).

I am looking for commercial places in Nowe Bemowo now where with my research I found the price range was vast from 4700 pln to 8200 pln depending on location,size,renter,condition,work needed etc.So far 13 years coming to Poland and buying I figure there is no hard and fast rule in prices just an approximate,and location.About residentials I dont pay much attention but I think same rule applies and most Poles and new investors tend to buy flats as investments and go through the hassle of renting to students after students and pay no taxes,thus more hard work and illegality,thats why so many flats to choose from,whereas commercials are usually sold to known peoples and rented by companies before some are even built.Lately fresh point(there smaller version Zabka) and carefour express is looking badly to open places 75 to 155 sq metre ones.

Property prices will go down more thats for sure but they will hit right back ofcourse in that decade and a half period of time,and if even if you bought it in bad time,so what live in it and will shoot up guranteed eventually.
