We are planning on moving to Spain during 2014. We will be be buying a property and will do so by engaging with a fully qualified and registered lawyer. We have a good recommendation to a firm in Seville but wondered if anyone had a tried and trusted legal firm in the Malaga area - a final decision as to where we relocate will determine who we use. We note that the financial T & C's covering the residency application are assessed on a person by person basis - is this correct? Are there any on line guides which actually give figures? We intend to contact the Spanish Consulate in London to get all the details covering residency, health care and tax but again any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

there are no actual figures - all the law says is something along the lines of 'above the level at which you qualify for state assistance' - which is about 625€ a month or 6000€ - but each office interprets it slightly differently & also local funcionarios have some leeway as far as taking individual circumstances into account

as far as healthcare is concerned, it's pretty straightforward - if you are a state pensioner (you mention London so I'm guessing you are a UK citizen) or qualify for a form S1 in some other way - you will need to be working here in order to access state healthcare - otherwise you'll need private healthcare

tax - that will depend upon your individual circumstances
