Re: Interesting ways other countries see England

Yes but your article is dated 2018. :mrgreen: There is more to England and the English than Boris and Brexit. And in that context the 1920 book is spot on. Probably be considered Xenophobic in this woke world. Really easy to read Spanish too, still used in some A’level curriculums.

Wouldn’t expect any different from the Guardian. Since this article over 500,000 Europeans have applied for permanent citizenship.

Re: How to get someone off your Escritura of your house??

If it was so easy to take someones name off, the same thing could happen to you and she could apply to take your name off. It wont just depend on your word in a democratic country.

Re: How is everybody getting on, what with Brexit and Covid ?

A place in the Sun is still going strong. Inland Malaga has just been on with John relocating to Spain in 2020. They never ask what are you going to do about healthcare or visas or learning the language. They also tell them the local Mayor will allow them to make alterations. Of course “Place in th...

Re: How is everybody getting on, what with Brexit and Covid ?

Before Brexit there were rules on long stays. A few who we knew used to spend around 6 months but fell foul of tax and registration rules.

Re: How to get someone off your Escritura of your house??

Consult a Lawyer. You cannot just take someone’s name off without going through the courts. If she agreed she would be liable for taxes. BIL was in a gay relationship not formalised. He bought a house in Spain and put it in both their names. They split up and when house was sold he had to give him h...

Perhaps it will show up in official stats soon instead of just anecdotal. Always been a significant Swedish and Norwegian community in Fuengirola, schools, Churches etc. A lot are second homes though.

Re: How is everybody getting on, what with Brexit and Covid ?

Andalucia is a big place! Unless you think andalucia is fuengiorla and torre! Also for those working sometimes they have no choice but to live in certain areas. Know most of it, East too except Almeria. Spent a year exchange at Sevilla University and lived in Spain around 13 years. Always Brits and...

:thumbup: Good to see you back on form. I have heard that a lot of the Brit rife raffe have gone. If I were choosing to get away from my own countrymen it would be somewhere around Costa de la luz. Would have to like solitude though, unless fluent.
