The Law in Spain : Why It's a Good Idea to Apply for Spanish Residency
If you are planning to live in Spain permanently, it makes sense to apply for residency. Not only will your presence in the country be officially above board (many expats fly under the radar, whether through conscious choice or by simply not knowing the procedure), but you will also be benefitting your local council, and you will be entitled to pretty much the same rights as a nationalised Spaniard. If your intention is to live in Spain for more than three months in the year, you are – by law – required to apply for a Spanish Residency certificate if you are an EU citizen.
For UK nationals this is more important than ever and the clock is ticking.
As of the 31st December the clock ran out for those who were not registered and different rules apply.
