Re: the end of the euro in Spain

Playing Devil's Advocate here....if Britain did opt out of the EU......where would that leave all of us?

We wouldn't be EU citizens.....so what would our status be here?

Re: house exchange england to spain

Very little seems to be moving either end.....basically because a lot of the Spain market depends on houses selling in the UK. And it's not happening.

Re: house exchange england to spain

There's definitely Brits who want to go back or have gone back, who have properties they want to dispose of here.
Of course a lot depends on the locations and values of both, and getting a perfect...
