Well we went to the Spanish embassy in Edinburgh,managed to park right at the door and were the only people there initially,a few others came in the half an hour we were there,and it was all so straight forwards.
We had read online what we all needed and when we got there we didnt need half of it,we only needed
1- copy of passport but only the page with our photographs on it
2- our passport which woman just looked at and gave us back
3- X15 form which we hadnt completed fully so she gave us another form which showed which parts we did need to complete
4- small stamped self addressed envelope
5- £7.55 each and she preferred the correct money,they didnt accept a card to pay

She did say was only valid for 3 months and if we needed more time to purchase somewhere we would need to reapply

They now send application to Spain electronically and we will get both an email and a hard copy of our NIE

Fingers crossed house sells and we move within the 3 months,we have someone interested in our place but they want to look at some other places before comitting to buying ours. 😀👍
