Can anyone recommend somebody locally who can help sort out my residential status.  I have a Padron cert and now want to get full residential for first myself and then add my wife.  We have been using a local firm of solicitors but have lost faith in them as they do not communicate what is needed and then blame you, their client, when you do not produce the right document

More info would be a help but if you are a UK passport holder and have not acquired an NLV you would need to start this process in the UK by contacting your nearest Spanish Consulate.

First of all, which Passport do you hold UK/EU/IRISH.?

Do you intend on retiring or working? 

Having a Padron will not add any weight to your residency application. 

If you hold a uk passport you will need some sort of visa before you can apply for residency.

Hi Paolo

I am actually an Irish passport holder; my wife has a British passport.  We purchased a property locally which cost €525,000.  Was purchased just in my name as we needed a military certificate which did not come through in time.  We have a Padron and wanted to take to the next stage.

We have a local solicitor, but they do not give clear advice.  I have to book a Residency interview and then add my wife later.

The latest form them says:

  • You must have a private medical insurance and you must send the policy to us and receipt of payment. 
  • Updated Padron Certificate (now that you are registered at the Padro, just pop into the Town Hall delegation at Pinar de Campoverde and they will issue a new in 5 minutes. Remember to take your passport)
I also have to show that I have €9,000 in my bank account.  Later we apparently need a translation of our marriage certificate and a furtehr €15,000 for my wife.

I just want to be sure what I am being told is correct as it's gradually changed.

Regards,  

David

It's far easier than you think for an Irish passport holder to get residency,  forget Solicitors. I've included a link that explains everything. All you need to do is move to Spain and sign on the foreigners register. The link explains how to include your spouse.
