Retiring to Spain (Retiring Abroad)

Good and nearly up to date advice (written in 2006). Needs Wealth tax to be removed and Health advice updated after the Valencian Province changes after 1 Apr 08.

Found this to be the most helpful and honest book of many. It addresses the period of 'look see' to confirm your decision, and also the possibility of returning to the UK and what to do.

There is so much information in this book that I have not
yet completed my first reading of it. What comes through
directly is its usefulness with contacts and contexts - as
well as presentation of personal challenges, like where in
Spain one would wish to retire, how to relate to officialdom,
and much more of practical value. Despite a four-page
index it may be an exercise to find again all those little
tidbits of information that can make life easier.

I will end with a challenge for the reader. Where in the book
would one find the answer to the conundrum? To rent or
buy a property one needs a Spanish bank account but in
order to open an account one needs an address (which
means renting or buying a property ....). Supplementary:
What role does the NIE play in opening an account?

The answers are in the book. Finding them in other ways
may be an even greater challenge than reading this book!

Great source to get the basics on how to retire to Spain. Very practical information specially if you are a UK national. Highly recommendable reading.

I knew it was not a recent publication, but some of the info is just wrong, i.e. which UK Benefits (DLA etc) you can take with you to Spain. Otherwise you get a pretty good idea of the palaver involved, especially from the financial side like taxes etc. All much more complicated than I thought and worth reading.

Divided into manageable chunks. Could tell it was from people who have done it. Was nice to have real life examples from those who had retired there. Failures as well as success stories.

Very informative and up to date as you can be with Spanish legislation.
