I totally agree and my branch in UK are quite happy for us to use a care of address and use online banking.

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

I honestly can't see how a care of address on the bank account makes any difference to my Spanish residency? Our property in UK is declared on the 720 my savings etc are declared, the UK house will be rented out. I have simply followed the advise of the bank and used a care of address. I don't reall...

Re: padron

Couple of years ago now (3 years) but I bought and legally registered a motorcycle as a non resident. Initially I was told I must be on the padron. I refused because I was properly non resident and as has been mentioned I didn't want to get caught in the tax residency thing at the time. Eventually I...

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

Was your local branch where your account was held? or just that you used it for payments. When cajamar closed our village bank all accounts that were held at that branch were simply transferred to nearby branch or branch of account holders choice. I used it but it wasn't my as account branch so didn...

Re: Convenio Especial

I was of the belief that in order to be eligible you had to have held residencia for 12 months not just padron? If that is the case how can it be used to obtain residencia?

Re: Associated fees in buying a house. High quote?

Thank you very much. I'm going to investigate further, otherwise I may be over paying by 8/9k ! About the mortgage being a noose - sounds like they don't accept early repayment or anything like that? I was shocked that they would fix the rate for 30 years. That's incredible. But maybe it also means...

Re: notification from bank re NIE renewal

My guess is that what it will be they do them every 2 years and usually send out a copy which you sign and return for bank to submit.
