Re: padron

I have not personally re-registered a car, so am not really qualified to comment, but I think the potential problem arising from registering on the padrón unless you are already a tax resident is very real so should be avoided if at all possible.
Just a thought: as a property owner, rather than presenting the escritura with all it's superfluous pages, perhaps a certificate from the ayuntamiento stating that you are up to date with your IBI contributions would suffice? I had to obtain such a certificate (it doesn't appear to hava an official title) when selling our property a couple of years ago and I just happened to come across a copy of it today. It struck me that most of the funcionários working at Tráfico probably wouldn't know the difference between this and a padrón certificate anyway; in fact, if you told them it was a padrón certificate, chances are they'd just believe you! At the end of the day, they're looking for some proof of address presumably, and this certificate certainly shows that.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often
