Evidence for adding girlfriend to padron - no rent paid, no bills

Postby alpineSi » Thu Jul 25, 2019 1:28 pm

I'm sure someone has dealt with this sort of situation before so advice welcomed.
Next month we'll be returning to my family property in Andalucía and although I feature on the deeds and some utilities bills, I've not been able to find much reference to adding my partner. We're not married, she won't be paying rent, doesn't have any bills there and well, basically it's only my word I suppose! Is there some kind of letter I need to prepare to vouch for her?

In the past we've always both been on rental contacts so this is a new to me.

I've seen that you can do an alta for the padron in Torrox online so I'll give that a go for me and report back.

Thanks.

Normally just a letter tends to cover it. Best bet is just asking in your townhall as they all have their own rules

In Alhaurin, when I wanted to add my GF to the Padron, and get her an empadronamiento certificate we had to go to the town hall and all the people that lived in the house had to sign the form - mum, dad, me, her -- to say that we all say that she lived there.

So i imagine it would be you and her signing ?

U not pareja de hecho? If yes, that suffices.

That might be a pain in the *beep* as my family are on the deeds and not in Spain at the moment! Was the form the usual padrón one or something special the townhall provided?

No not done that. I've probably misunderstood it but I thought the pareja thing was only regional so if we do it up here in the North we have to redo it down there. Might be a mission for another day that one!

In our municipality, even being married does not suffice. I own 100% of our property, and when we moved to our new address and went to update the padron in 2017, I had to sign a form confirming that my husband had my permission to live there.

They gave us a form with a list of the occupants, and each person had to sign next to their name.

Hey, been moving house! Well, I tried contacting the town hall but they never replied. Lawyer suggested just trying the online form for me but yes we would need to get everything to sign for g/friend so I'm holding off until family are all together. In the meantime we've just set up a postal redirect and are hoping that does it.
