I have heard that you can get an extended residency  permit to stay over the 90 days on a UK passport. You have to apply to Town Hall. Has any one done this or heard of this?

Thank you in advance

No sorry doesn’t exist. If you need to stay over the 90 days you would have to apply to the Embassy stating the extenuating circumstances  as to why you cannot leave Schengen.

Which refers you to either the embassy or the foreigners office, where you have to prove your extenuating circumstances.

Thank you. I spoke to Expat shop here in La Marina urb. It seems that people were taking a chance after Brexit and in the past and they turned blind eye. However Madrid and other cities last year imposed fines and made it difficult to return. Now it’s seems that every where the 90 days is being strictly imposed. Extenuating circumstances will be taken into account if you go through the correct channe

Not quite right, people took their chances before Brexit, but not since!  
Plus they are Schengen Rules, not Spanish rules.

That’s why passports are stamped in and out or digitally monitored. People for the last 16 months have been advised to retain boarding passes to prove entry/exit if they haven’t had their passports stamped correctly as you then have the evidence to prove you are not breaking the law.  I guess things will become tighter once EITIAS is introduced later this year. 

Not much point of having a holiday home  here, if you are banned from entering Schengen for up to three years.

Yes you can take a chance and you're unlikely to be stopped as you leave Spain. 

However, make sure that you're out of Spain for at least 90 days before you return. It's incoming UK passport holders that are being checked based on out going dates. The immigration have have more time to check on incoming passports and less pressure than with outgoing flights......Do you feel lucky?
