NIE numbers

Post by cropley » April 14th, 2011, 5:35 pm

Does a non resident property owner require a NIE number ?

On my bank statement i have a number in a box marked DNI/CIF - an 8 figure number followed by an astrisk * but on the statement there is no * elsewhere

Yes all non residents with any financial interest in Spain will/should/must have a NIE/NIF/CIF number. I got my first when I opened a bank account years before I moved over. This was a 'Non residents' number which changed when I became resident.

Long Term Rentals & NIE numbers, etc

Post by ParisMJacovides » September 13th, 2017, 10:26 am

Hello All - we are planning to relocate to Menorca spring next year. We are looking for a long term rental initially whilst we look for a place to two questions:
1. Where is the best place to find long term rentals
2. Where can I get the NIE number - can I get this from the Spanish consulate here in London first? Will need this to buy a car.
3. Car - is it best to just go to main dealers in Menorca or buy one from main land Spain and drive it over?
Thanks guys appreciate any guidance!
