I did hear in this area (Costa Blanca) that they require people who are renting to re-register their padron regularly.

Also some Spanish processes like passport renewal or replacement have required an up to date padron.

That's true but what they usually want is an up to date padron certificate which does not normally involve reregistering.

Yes, my daughter had to get an up to date certificate when her kids joined the school, but this is a new law about the need or not to re register like you say.

Hi there,

Our understanding from talking to local and national authorities is that there is currenlty a one-off exercise underway to check the accuracy of the padron registers. This means you may be contacted to confirm your status on the padron. If you are contacted, you will be asked to answer in order to remain active on the padron and if you don't then you may be removed from the register. If you are not contacted, you are not required to confirm your status.

For certain services (e.g. social services) you may be required to show a recent padron certificate which is less than 3 months old. This is normal procedure and is not related to the above mentioned project.

Non-EU citizens are required to renew their padron certificate in any case.

You should contact your local authority about any changes to the padron registration process.

I hope this helps a little to clear things up!

Best wishes.

What happens is that Spaniards, when they change residence, register in their new town hall and that town hall then alerts the old one to remove the inscription. When a European leaves his town - often to return to his own country - his town hall is usually not informed about his departure.
What happens - there are Europeans listed on the padrón who shouldn't be there. So, we have a spring-clean.
Much more concern - those selfish Europeans who don't bother to register on the padrón.

agree with what you are saying lenox, but the language thing is a barrier to a lot of brits going on the padron. when I lived in garrucha I went to the town hall as soon as I could to enrol. not having any spanish,I found it to be a bit of a chore. but I persevered and after three visits,got myself on it.
the town hall staff were very helpful, and appreciated my attempts. Moved to the mountains and away to the town hall again,this time with some spanish. no problem,again they appreciated the idea of my joining the padron. My son,on joining the local school,found himself to be very popular indeed with the teachers,because he was the 7th foreigner in the school,they could now hire another professor!!!!
My advice to any brits thinking of going on the padron is to do it,the town hall gets more money from central government,and you are showing your committment to the village...

Hi

I am surprised; part of the "first registration tax" for car now relies on the empadron saying when you first registered in Spain.

If they de-register you, then I assume that info disappears and you can gain thousands of pounds !!!

If this truly is a loophole, then why don't people de-register to save this money?
