"Uncertainty over Brexit leads to many British expats returning home", Property Investor Today, 31 | 10 | 2018 - Noticia
...between 2012 and 2017, the number of Britons leaving Spain outstripped those who arrived. This exodus is being blamed on ...

As a result, there has been a rise in older people choosing to rent on their return from Europe, according to Girlings Retirement Rentals. It is a trend that ... Girlings Chief Executive expects to continue as the full impact of Brexit is felt over the next few years.

"Are 17 million Brits ready not to holiday in Spain with no-deal Brexit?", The Local, 30 | 10 | 2018 - Opinión (Matthew Bennett, the creator of The Spain Report)
...for all of the ... Brits in Spain, or Spaniards in the UK, who work... What will happen with social security registrations? If social security registrations are not sorted out, what happens to access to healthcare (not for British pensioners who retired to Spain but for British nationals who have been working here and paying taxes for 20 years)? And let’s not forget voting rights, given that European and local elections will take place in Spain next May. Life plans constructed over the last two or three decades, taking full advantage of rights as European citizens within the European Union, are suddenly, urgently, in danger for hundreds of thousands of people... This lack of leadership, decision and planning will soon create palpable problems for a lot of people.

"Mijas matters: Get out to vote!", The Olive Press, 26 | 10 | 2018 - Opinión (Bill Anderson)
We are fortunate that our British norms and traditions are not fundamentally at odds with Spanish culture. But, the Brits in Spain pay their taxes, run their businesses... And, they turn out in force for the free sardines on the beach in May. What we have brought is more than just our money... I see people well integrated in the correct use of the word. It is true that language can be a barrier to further integration... Apart from this I would love to see the Brits more involved in the local political process. These are only Spanish elections we can vote in and which make the biggest impact on our lives...

«Brexit: 'So many questions, but still no answers'», The Local, 18 | 10 | 2018 - Entrevista (David Sparks, 78, moved from Bedfordshire to Totana in Murcia 12 years ago with his wife)
If I had to re-register to be a resident in Spain as an alien then financially I could not meet the conditions and would have to leave Spain. ... The UK government ... have not said ... whether the pension is going to be frozen with no more annual inflation increases. ... If they are frozen then life will become more difficult financially. The main pension concern is that of private pensions being paid by insurance companies directly into Spain as the EU conditions and agreements will no longer exist. ... in July 2018 the Spanish government made a law that all people living in Spain should receive free healthcare. The only problem is that it was left to each autonomous region to enact the law, and many have not.
