Our Team Needs You

BREXPATS IN SPAIN is fighting to defend our rights here as British residents.

Much was agreed in principle in December between the UK and the EU but nothing has been signed off.  Six months later and we are still none the wiser as to our continued rights here. And, with that mantra in our heads that ‘nothing is agreed until everything is agreed’ our patience is now running very thin!  The UK proposal to exit the EU has to be presented to the EU for their approval in October.  It is then discussed at the European Parliament and then each one of the EU27 has to individually agree to it if the deadline of 29 March 2019 is to be respected.

The EU has already stated that there are 3 issues that the UK has to resolve before it will consider the proposal and these are proving to be colossal stumbling blocks for our UK government – Ireland, Citizens’ Rights and Freedom of Movement.

We cannot influence the Irish or issue but we can influence the Citizens’ Rights, and to some degree, the Freedom of Movement.  Our association has over 5,000 members throughout Spain and with representatives in some areas but we need help in other areas – we all need to be giving the same message.  We have no parliamentary representative so it is up to us to represent ourselves!

Our acquired rights must be honoured and allowed to continue.  We don’t partake in scaremongering but that Brexit clock is ticking and the time for platitudes is over.  The UK has now agreed to grant settled status to its EU residents, provided all goes well and to plan, and we need to persuade Spain into granting us the same because this settled status agreement has to be reciprocal.

  • If I change my nationality and become Spanish apart from the obvious benefits (retained public healthcare) how might it affect my UK Pension, my will and if I sell my property?

    • Nationality is not a prerequisite to entitlement to a UK state pension, what counts are the national insurance contributions made and you’ll usually need to have 10 years worth of contributions to be entitled.
    • Regarding your will, if you become a Spanish national you might have to change your will in Spain because forced heirship rules will then apply and you have to leave at least 2/3 of your estate to your children.
    • On the sale of a property I don’t envisage any change to the current rules if one of the parties should become a Spanish national.
