Re: Getting a Spanish Passport

Hi, Now us Brits are out of the EU and most of us never want or cant leave Spain, it makes a lot of sense to get a Spanish Passport and so the residencia, TIE, NIE thing wont be an issue and we can vote in the National and Andalucian elections. Has anyone actually done its recently, I want to keep ...

Re: Chiclana,Conil & san lucar

Hola, Conil is a white seaside village and probably of more interest than the centre of Chiclana although there are many interesting churches especially Santa Ana on top of the hill. You may find Medina Sidonia of interest but be warned, it is a typical mountain top village and you climb up or down ...

Re: Solar/Electric Car

Hola

On YouTube there is "E.V.man" who every week has a slot about electric vehicles. I watched one about having solar panels on the roof and bonnet of a car - roughly three days to charge it for four hours running of a small electric car

Re: Leaving our house to my son

Hola,

Friends of mine used a suggestion from their gestor to transfer the ownership of their house to their son. To do it while living saved an amount of money.

You need proper professional advice to go down this route

Re: Post Brexit Business Idea

Hola,

I'd say it is too early for a marriage scheme to work; a few years down the line then maybe. There is a market for British men to go abroad and get a Philippine etc. wife - but whether the business is viable, who knows.

Re: non resident car owners

Hola

A non-resident either has to own a property or have a rental contract to be able to own a car in Spain. the rules were changed in 2005 from memory (when I helped import hundreds of cars).

Re-registering a car is therefore possible

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Hola

The article is scaremongering; my solicitor has been helping both Americans and Canadians with this “problem” that will now affect UK buyers. In reality it simply adds about two months to the buying process and is not a real problem in most cases.

For the speed limit change, it will not come into force until May to allow signs to be changed. And the speed limit may not be exceeded at any time.
