Ex-UK Residents Setting Up Home in Spain

September 11th, 2007

This post came about due to a question raised by a reader of the House Buying Blog with regards to language barriers that English speakers may encounter when living in Spain. There are bound to be some problems if you don’t speak the language, but this needn’t be so much of a problem if you are among your own nationality. The following table lists recent figures denoting the number of UK ex-pats living in the different Spanish regions.
