    The settlement went smooth and fast. No issues whatsoever. Had to go to the separate utility companies and pay the deposit in cash but that went smooth too. Buying a car next week and it seems pretty convoluted; deposit the cash in the car dealers bank account, wait a day, get the paperwork from the dealer, go to the tax office and pay the taxes, get car insurance, go get the plates, get the inspection, finish. Ugh.

    Glad it going well overall. You car buying experience sounds like buying a car in the states for the 1st time. I have not purchased many cars that I picked up the same day I put down my deposit- I know its a long process but you will be happy in the end I am sure.

    Glad the closing went well. Dealing with the car is a pain, but it is what it is-time consuming.

    Where are you going to keep the car when you are not there?

    I'll keep my car at the condo. It's a gated community and I spoke to the security guard. I feel pretty good about leaving it.
