I'm looking to rent in Santa Pola starting in September.

Can someone help me re the order I need to do things?!

I think its 

1. Get a Spanish Bank account

2. Apply for the NIE

3. Rent somewhere

4. Get Padron

5. Apply for residency

Sorry I know there is LOTS of info on here and I will read it all but I'd like to get the general order of things right first, I'm finding it all a bit daunting.

Thanks all

John

NIE precedes the bank account,

If your age is less than 66, you need private healthcare before applying for Residency. If you are 66 or more, you need an S1 for Spanish NHS

Suggest you look at Jim's guides.

Given your timescales, I strongly suggest you engage a gestor and an insurance broker. Also a Spanish lawyer to act on your behalf to obtain your NIE/set up your bank account (you give them power of attorney), and to check that you have a sound lease. Ideally, set up a relationship with a firm that provides all three services.

To add to what Kelvin has said:

Presuming that you are relocation to Spain permanently

Your rental needs to be a formal long term contract as it has to be submitted to the authorities for your TIE. An informal arrangement made in a bar is no good for residencia.

You may need a letter from your landlord to get on the padrón as the ayuntamiento can be a bit sticky about a non owner putting themselves on.

You will need to show a regular monthly income into your Spanish bank account of about 900€ per month in order to prove you can support yourself.

If you intend to work in Spain, and your photo shows you are fairly young, you will need to either get a contract of employment, where social security contributions will be paid into the system, or register as autónomo and pay them monthly yourself. You will also have to register with Agencia Tributaria for tax purposes.

If you are working and contributions are being paid into INSS, you will be covered by Spain's state healthcare system. Otherwise you will need comprehensive private health insurance for at least the first year of residence.

"You will need to show a regular monthly income into your Spanish bank account of about 900€ per month in order to prove you can support yourself"

And they usually want to see at least 3 months income paid in.

Thanks Ray

Really useful information especially re the rental agreement.

I probably won't be working in Spain but will continue to do some work in the UK/Overseas/Online but that could change.

Thank you once again
