  1. rent increases with inflation

    This is worded to suggest that such an automatic increase is a statutory requirement. It is not. I just renewed my lease after one year of tenancy. I agreed to a 4.76% increase, but the new term is for three years. If such a law exists, why would the landlord settle for so much less? Hint: No such law, rule, or custom exists.

    If I had a painful surgery and your sister was the nurse, she would feel the pain also. My grip will the indicator of my pain.
  13. How much do I pay my Cleaning Lady?

    That would be OK for a housewife. Try ama de llaves if you don't "sleep" with her.

  15. How much do I pay my Cleaning Lady?

    Housekeeper or cleaning lady? Criada is a maid and I have neither a maid or a butler. I use respect for my housecleaner and refer to her as my empleada dom├ęstica.
  16. Ask a professional, not a forum poster, is all I said.

  18. Anyone Lose a Car

    Read it more carefully, Mexico: This Phone App Will Tell You If a Vehicle Is Reported Stolen Your car did not want to involve the police and probably no report was made.
  19. How much do I pay my Cleaning Lady?

    She takes about four hours but stays until it is done. She is totally honest and is known by my neighbor as such for 30+ years. We are in Chapala and I would be glad to have her contact anyone that is interested and speaks Spanish. PM me with contact info so I may relay it to her. I have no idea what her schedule is other than Thursday mornings at my place.
