This is a long shot, but I have been advised in the UK to try and get a Residence Permit to enhance my chances of retiring to the Costa del Sol post Brexit. Clearly I would need a residential address in the area. Without risking arrest or imprisonment, is there any way I could get an address (perhaps pay for an address until we are able to move in a couple of years)? May be a daft idea but thought I’d give it a try

Hi Maxster. Really appreciate the advice. We had something similar in mind, and would definitely rent initially. I’m concerned that, given Brexit, it might be a non starter anyway as I am a few years off retirement. I had this idea that if I could get a Residence Permit it might just give us a better chance post Brexit. Maybe it’s a daft idea because I would need an address in Spain I know. Someone had said I might be able to get an address by some means but they may be mistaken. All advice is always welcomed, including your wise w

Many thanks again Maxster. I’ll sit tight and hope for the best. Very interesting about the healthcare schemes - thought they would be considerably more. All the very best.

Hi Maxster. I think you don't need to have residencia to get caught for tax. Once you have a property they charge you for a notional income based on the cadastral value of the property, whether you are making any income or not. Outrageous.

Hi again Maxster. Sorry I forgot to ask - the healthcare companies you mentioned at the end, do you have any contact details?

No one knows post Brexit but we have already told foreign residents in the UK to apply to be allowed to stay in the UK and if not approved they’ll be kicked out. Don’t be surprised if other governments, including Spain, retaliate (deservedly so) with similar laws.

Doubt this will happen, but anyway, spain reply’s on expats and tourism.
