We were reliably informed that Brexit wouldn´t really impact our lives in Spain. I am sad to say that these “reliable sources” were wrong. Slowly, it is becoming evidently clear that Britons will not enjoy the same rights in Spain that they had almost taken for granted. The first Brexit bombshell was that non-residents can only stay for 90 days in a 180 day period in Spain (and across the European Union) which will make life difficult for those residents who have holiday homes and want to enjoy an extended stay. The second is qualifications.
