It was a few years ago now that I sold a trastero and Hacienda messed me around, refusing to issue a fiscal residency certificate despite having filed tax returns for the previous 15 years or so. The notary refused to accept my previous year's tax return, or even an up to date resumé of my years contributions; it had to be the fiscal residency certificate, or 3% retention. Fortunately, the buyer agreed to delay paying the 3% to Hacienda while I rectified the situation (argues the point) with Hacienda, and I was able to return to the notary a few weeks later with the certificate and the buyer, to get my remaining 3%.
This time, we got the certificates without any problem, but as mentioned previously, we're going the non-resident route so won't need them!
FAL: when I registered for cl@ve, the numero de soporte on our green resident certificates didn't work either - I had to dig out our old residencia cards and use the number off them. That worked. In my experience, there are so many flaws in any official Spanish government website or online system, that I have very limited confidence in using them.

Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often
