    I have a property in Costa Tropical area,and have luckily managed to rent it out long term to my sister in law.I and am trying to sort out a long term rental car or lease car for her so that all she needs to pay in addition to the rental / lease cost is for fuel.
    She has a Spanish bank account and when i spoke to the bank,who i had been told could arrange vehicle leasing,the Manager said she would need to be a resident.
    I have googled all the probable terms and have drawn a relative blank.
    I am based in England and both of us are rusty in Spanish,(although learning).
    Can anyone recommend an English speaking company who could help,the only lead i have so far is reservacar Malaga,Ideally it would be nice to do it on a rolling 12 or 24 month contract.
    Any advice greatly appreciated

    I know that Helle Hollis do long term rental contracts. They have a website http://www.hellehollis.com. Not leasing but may be an alternative.

    Most Leasing’s are for three to five years with restrictions of kilometers that can be driven. So even if your sister in law was a resident she would not be able to lease it for a lesser period.

    I sugguest you buy a car in UK & drive accross. There quite a few left hand drive advertised in loot etc.

    If you buy a car in UK and it remains registered there, it will have to be driven back every 12 months for its MOT. (It’s about time the EU ended this nonsense).

    UK residents need to return to the uk at least every 6mths at most to keep motor insurance validated. Its not as simple just to insure in the uk and take it back for MOT.

    You can get “ex pat” car insurance that will cover your UK here if you live here more than 6 mths of the year but having used the only company that I know of that offers this, I cannot recommend them!

    If your car is here for more than 6 mths in one calendar year, you have to legally “change the registration address” – which basically means getting it on Spanish plates…one good thing, Spanish road tax (the “Vineta”) is MUCH cheaper than the UK for small environmental cars…but set per area so maybe this is not true where you are.

    Spanish car insurance seems expensive but the cost also includes breakdown services that I think you normally pay extra for in the UK (at least with my insurance company) so not as expensive as it first looks.
