Re: Do you need a passport to cross to Portugal

Theoretically a Spaniard can travel around Europe using nothing more than his Spanish ID card but I have no personal experience.

Re: Bad news for negative equity in Spain

Re: NIE Amendment - advice needed

Your NIE number should be registered with AEAT for tax purposes and it is they (AEAT) that should be informed of any change of address on form 030.

Re: NIE Amendment - advice needed

I some cases the NIE form does not even show an address.

Sorry to drift off a bit but another anomaly is that if you have renewed your passport since applying for your NIE the passport number you...

Re: council tax rates(benalmedina)

I have a three bedroom apartment (not a town house) in Arroyo de la Miel and the annual IBI is in the region of €600. I would assume that a town house would be a little more.

Re: Land Issues

Very true. I would suggest obtaining an historical nota simple, or nota simple extensiva, from the property registry. This is a copy of the actual entry in the property registry not just the usual...

Exactly. This is why using a lawyer is a totally useless exercise and why the majority of Spaniards don't bother.
