Did you get my reply? We will probably move back and register as UK residents in November just to be on the safe side when we exchange contracts but I really wanted to be sure - I need to know if we could wait until January when we actually complete the sale...??? Would exchange of contracts as a spanish resident mean we would have to pay CGT to Spain? Surely only on completion does the ownership of the house transfer??? Although we will register with hmrc and doctors etc as UK resident in Nov (to be on the safe side), we will physically move our belongings and pets to UK when we have completed on the house we are buying - completion also set for January 10th 2015. Until then we will give my daughter's address in London.
I also wanted to know about the two payments that I made in seeking to contact you... the first should be refunded. How do I go about this?
