I have only just leafed through the book so far but lots of useful information. Just what you need if thinking of moving to Spain. needed!! - Suzanne Elliot, Amazon

Bought this book for some help and guidance for our move to Spain. Have had a house in Spain for a number of years, but we are hoping to move there permanently in the next couple of years. This book explains what you can expect when you move, together with lots of information on legal requirements etc. on moving to this country. I am sure that this book will prove very helpful in the next few years. - jolaw, Amazon

excellent book, pointed out a few things that could have very costly consequences if not addressed. - Kimberley Hillier, Amazon

i bought this as a gift for a mate who was moving to spain. He found the info up-to-date and worth knowing. Brownie points for me! - Alun Owen, Amazon

My wife & I are about to find out firsthand just how useful this is. We are planning to spend the month of January 2014 in Spain to see if it would be a good place to which to relocate permanently.

I only wish that the publisher had seen fit to keep updating it past 2009.

This is the most complete "how to" book I think I have ever read.

David Hampshire's style is factual & straightforward. He doesn't waffle or confuse. I can hardly think of anything I could improve here except an update to 2013.
- John Alldredge, Amazon
