Este certificado tiene una validez de tres meses?
That sounds like a white one and is only a temporary certificate. Those who register as a resident get a green one which has no expiry date.

Yes I know, that I also have, but this individual also insisted on the original NIE certificate. Foreigners are a rare commodity here, so most gestor etc just think we have the same cards and certificates as Spanish nationals.

No. Ours were issued in 2005 when we bought the house, but we didn't become resident till 2008. No expiry date on the residencia certificates either.

No expiry date on our residencia certs either. Iíve read that the green overrides the white so there is actually no need for anyone to ask for the white ones

Our white ones are just the NIEs, and have nothing to do with residencia. These are what the gestor needed. But as I said, they were issued in 2005 and it's probably all different now!

As @megsmum stated, the green paper/card override the white A4 sheets so there's no need to show the white ones.

Many, many people don't have the white sheets as you get an NIE/NIF when you get the green sheet/card.

by-the-way, it hasn't really changed in that respect. White A4 NIE's then and now, green sheet then green card now

I still have the white NIE. I was confused as I thought a NIF number was only for businesses. Grandad's company had a subsidiary in Bilbao and I remember many years ago the letterhead and invoices had the NIF number on. Do Spaniards not have a DNI now?

Yes, Spaniards have always had DNI's and still do.

Spanish companies have CIF's - whereas in UK, companies have a separate VAT number, this CIF is used for that as well as being a fiscal certificate.
