While I understand the reasons for buying a brand new home you would think by now with all the bad news about lost deposits, builders going walkabout, and the many other bad reasons that people wouldn't touch a not yet built house with a barge pole, but no they still buy and it seems this lesson is never learnt. Stop buying them and then the whole system would get a shake up, not as if there is a housing shortage in Spain.

I don't know if people have been to their banks when the transfer of money is needed and have had a good chat with them because the last house I sold in Spain the sale proceeds went into my Spanish bank account, I had a talk with the lady bank person that dealt with transfers and basically she told me that the rate on this day wasn't as good as it was, lets say yesterday, we both agreed that I would come in about 11am every day or so to see what the rate was, I took a punt after about a week on the days rate, transferred the amount over and ended up with 800€'s more on the amount, and their charge was minimal. I also closed down one account at a different bank, no questions asked, transferred over no problem. I did once use one of the money exchange people and to be honest from my point of view it wasn't worth the hassle after I worked it all out, have never used them since, I use my UK bank now to transfer money to my Spanish account and they still even now beat others, it gets to Spain within the day also of course many people will differ, and it has to be said, truthfully, I hate banks, just my take on it, maybe I have been lucky.

Presume you have asked your bank, if you are a UK person that is, if they deal with your Spanish bank, otherwise how else would you get the money to Spain? Cash in your pocket so to speak.

Yes mariedav, you are correct. The legal company I asked about this sent over what I posted, Prove you, or the main earner, has a monthly income of €2130 and an extra €532 for each dependant Now they have sent over, when I questioned them about what you posted, the above. Sounds like Spain doesn't want anyone outside of the EU moving to Spain and spending money they're, hopefully they can get plenty of their own people to buy up their new built houses.

Thread: Non-Lucrative Residence Visa

Here is a summary of what UK residents wishing to move to Spain will need to do: Have no criminal record Register as a resident in Spain Exchange their UK driving licence for a Spanish one Register for healthcare as a resident in Spain – if you are already residing in Spain or move there permanently prior to 31 December 2020, you will have the same life-long healthcare rights in Spain as you do now, providing you continue as a resident. Prove they can support themselves and family by having a salaried position or are self-employed Must have an income of 700 Euros each month Prove they have not been ejected from Spain before An EX18 application form appropriately filled in and signed (two copies) Attach their passport (original and copy) Attach one passport photo Certificate of registration (Certificado de Empadronamiento) – from the Town Hall, that is no less than three months’ old from the day of application (original). An N.I.E. number – only applies if you own property in Spain or live in Spain as a resident. Might help a little which I doubt, one point is the 700 € a month way different from the 2000 € a month spoken about.
