On one of my lost Blog comments someone asked about life in Spain and what the local government officials were like.
Well firstly I would say that I am not a resident just a part time holiday maker.
My advice to would be residents of Spain would be to rent a place for 6 months at least before moving over on a permanent basis and do remember if purchasing a property that prices are still falling.
Search the internet and read the English language newspapers - they will have a lot to say about life in general and what people think of the local councils and the rules and regulations.
Spain is not all sun and sea - it can be jolly cold in the winter. Some goods in the shops can be more expensive than the UK especially now that the exchange rate to the Euro is bad.
Do your homework.....
