Healthcare for UK nationals living in Spain

We like to keep our clients new and old up to date on matters relating to Spain. A tip and useful source of information is to visit Healthcare for UK nationals living in Spain – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The following is a short piece on healthcare

All residents in Spain need to register to access healthcare.

Once registered for healthcare, basic state services are free, but there are some things that patients need to pay for. For example, you usually have to pay something towards prescriptions – either a reduced price or the full price.

UK nationals usually access the Spanish national health system in one of these ways:

  • through entitlement to healthcare if they’re employed or self-employed in Spain
  • paying directly into the public health insurance scheme (Convenio Especial)
  • registering a UK-issued S1 form with the social security office
  • using a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) for temporary stays
  • through entitlement to healthcare as a permanent resident if they’ve lived in Spain for 5 years

Why Use Properties Overseas?

Brexit – Changes to the rules on Financial Advice

You take financial advice from the UK but live in Spain, France, Portugal, Cyprus, Malta or another EU country? Regulations are changing. What do you need to think about as full Brexit approaches?

Post Brexit

Reassuringly, even if there is a no-deal Brexit, citizens’ rights for UK nationals legally settled in an EU member state by 31 December 2020 are protected under the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement. There are no such guarantees, however, in the area of financial services, which could affect whether you can continue to receive UK-based advice and services as an EU resident. 

You need to make sure you check that your financial planning – and your adviser – will stand up to the challenges that Brexit may bring. Here are four key considerations. 

The end of passporting

If you have a good relationship with your UK-based financial adviser, you may understandably wish to continue using them, despite now living in a different country. However, you need to make sure they can legally continue to advise you after the Brexit transition period.

Why Buy A Resale Property?

Many coastal areas in Spain are now mature resorts where building sites in prime locations are limited and expensive. In order to get the property you want in a good location, close to the beach and amenities, resale properties maybe the best or only option. There are other advantages, these include:

  • Can be considerably cheaper to buy ( in some areas new builds command a 30% premium)
  • Able to take possession quickly
  • Less expensive community fees
  • More certainty on running costs
  • No further construction disruption in the area
  • You will know what the area will be like in a few years time

Whilst purchasing a new build provides the opportunity buy a modern fully equipped property and to customise it the way you prefer, the lower cost of resale property can enable you to improve or even renovate to achieve what you want well within a lower budget.
