Healthcare in Spain 'free and universal' to all residents, legal or not.

FREE and universal State healthcare for everyone in Spain has now been officially restored after years of undocumented migrants being denied all bar emergency treatment.

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!

Mick you do not say how old you are.   If over retirement age you will probably be entitied to ‘free’ cover paid for by DWP

Extract from free health cover web page 

“Some confusion still exists, however, since non-EU citizens are needing to show proof of health insurance to be able to apply for residence, even though they will be covered by the State once they are legally resident –“

When people are applying for permission to live in spain that free cover is not accepted. That may be because that covers people living in spain, not applying to do so.  A possible ‘ legal loop hole’

Mick,  it would seem you either need to get a job, pay the private insurance or wait until you can get an S1

Best of luck 

ps Brexit might change that

Mick I suggest if you have not done so, that you call DWP overseas office in newcastle ( 0345 608 8545 ) and ask them if you can get an S1 on your 65th birthday.

If you are a holiday home owner then you have no other option other than using a estate agents... If you lived permanent in Spain you could try a for sale board ...but as a previous poster said be prepared for the high volume of dreamer's .personally I would shop around for a good sole agency deal ...if they are not prepared to give you a discount for a sole agency ..then put it up for sale with as many agents as possible.
