Going down this route sounds a lot less hassle so leaning towards doing it ourselves :)

We got the list from the website but didn't need the photos or envelope that it said we needed! But it didn't give the amount to pay and that had to be in cash. I think it was about £8.50 each application. We didn't have cash and had to dash off to the bank which was about a 2 minute walk from the consulate.
It was very very simple. But the Consulate closes at lunchtime and isn't open to public in the afternoon, I think it might close at 13.30 but please check.

Hi
We obtained ours, whilst still living in the UK through the Spanish solicitor we where purchasing our
property through.
Painless and very quick, no visiting the police, waiting in line or language problems.
Our English speaking Abogado dealt with it all.
Like anything legal in Spain, it will cost a bit (60 euros), but a hell of a lot cheaper than flying to Spain
or visiting an embassy.

If you go the Spanish Consulate website you can request the forms. They also sent and English translation of the parts you need to fill in. They also send a link to the police forms you will need to fill in too. You need two copies of the consulate forms and three of the police form. But don't sign them as you have to sign them when you're there. You will also need to take your passport and a photocopy of your passport. Also £8.50 in cash to pay...they won't accept card. We had omitted to fill in a part of the form as it wasn't shown on the translation...she just asked us to fill it in...it didn't seem to be a big deal. The staff speak English. It was all quick and painless.
We arrived at 9.20 on Thursday morning....there were two queues outside the consulate. We had to queue on the right, the on appointment queue, as you don't need an appointment for NIE. Once the consulate opened the queue moved quite quickly. We were called in by 9.30. We were out and all done by 10.
Even though the consulate staff were on strike we still received it within two weeks.

Please don't anyone tell me what should happen as I am only telling what DID happen yesterday in Gran Canaria

My friend here in Las Palma's asked me to accompany him to the main police station to obtain his N I E. He had downloaded the application form and filled it in correctly !
We presented ourselves at the correct desk and after scrutinising the application form he was told "as an E U member he dd NOT require an N I E and basically refused to process his application on the grounds that an N I E was only
Required for the purchase of a car, house or any other object requiring official registration ! Does anyone have any THOUGHTS or CONCRETE advice to the contrary ??
I was and always have been under the impression that N I E was easily and readily available, thanks for your attention, Alan.

PS, as I have stated more than once here I easily obtained an N I E in Fuengirola in 1992 !

You do need to state the reason why you are applying for the NIE on the form. I helped someone to apply for one recently and we put "to rent an apartment" on the form, and it was issued without any problem.

We didn't have to put it on the form, but we were asked at the Spanish Consulate in London, what we required it for.

Thanks for all your replys, Our move has been a little delayed due to illness.
We Were planning to get our NIE's before Christmas but it never happened.
We now plan to get them next week, I have a couple of questions
Do we need The forms 'Model 790 payment Forms' As the link is not working to download.
And do we need a certificate of non residence?
Also another poster mentioned police forms, where can I get them?

Sorry for all the questions, here's the link the consulate gave us http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Consulados ... s/NIE.aspx

Thanks all :)
