1:renting a property in Spain implies signing a contract with the landlord which can be a short or long-term agreement.
2:based on the duration of the stay, the rights of the tenant are more extensive (the longer the rental period, the more extensive the rights of the tenant.
3:the landlord has the obligation of registering the tenants with the Spanish authorities.
4:the landlord cannot enter the property without the written consent of the tenant.

The only thing you need, in legal terms, is the NIE (Número de Identificación del extranjero). This number, which is unique to each individual, is essential to carry out any transaction in Spain. Since it must appear on all documents that you sign or are issued in Spain, you must have it before signing the deed. The NIE is not complicated to obtain, but it does take a long time; ask me how to make it easier for you to obtain the NIE in order to speed up the process as much as possible.
In addition, although it is not compulsory, having a bank account in Spain will make all the formalities easier, as it will make payments faster and will probably save you some commissions.

If the idea of going to Spain to learn Spanish seems daunting, read on.
This article will provide tips on where to learn Spanish in Spain, what to do once you’re on the ground and how to prepare for your language-learning adventure.
The Ins and Outs of Learning Spanish in Spain
Where to Learn Spanish in Spain
Okay, you’ve decided to go to Spain… Now what? Spain is made up of 17 autonomous communities (like states), each of which has its own distinctive culture and history. Additionally, the regions in Spain vary in terms of the Spanish that’s spoken there. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a destination in Spain for Spanish learning:
Regional Spanish dialects
Some say that the clearest, easiest-to-understand dialect of Spanish is found in the north-central community of Castilla y León. (Why do you think they call the language Castellano, anyway?) The nearby areas of Castilla La Mancha and Madrid are also known for their relatively clear Spanish. Cities like León, Burgos and Salamanca are known for their “clear” Spanish dialects, which may make them good places for a beginner.
On the other hand, some of the Southern provinces—particularly Murcia, Córdoba, Extremadura and Cádiz—have a reputation of being slightly more difficult for foreigners to understand. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you should avoid these provinces! Learning regional accents and slang may be tricky at first, but it also can be part of the fun of learning Spanish. And take it from someone who learned Spanish in Extremadura—once you master the regional dialect, you’ll be well prepared to speak Spanish with anyone you meet in Spain.
All in all, each community in Spain has its own interesting linguistic characteristics!
PhD opportunities in Spain
Spain is regularly regarded as one of the most popular destinations for international study, and it’s not hard to see why.
Its Mediterranean climate and beautiful beaches make the country an enjoyable (and relaxing!) place to learn and research. But, Spanish universities are still renowned for high-quality teaching and impact across many research areas.
Spain puts particular emphasis on doctoral training and development, with structured course content and strong relationships with non-academic partners.
Of course, Spain also has an exceptional heritage when it comes to the Arts, Literature and Science, including figures such as Pablo Picasso, Salavador Dalí, Francisco la Goya, Antoni Gaudí, Miguel de Cervantes, Salvador de Madariaga and Santiago Ramón y Cajal.
Here are some of the highlights you can expect from a Spanish PhD this year:
International outlook – Spanish universities are welcoming to international students and the country has strong travel connections to other countries of Europe
Learn Spanish – Spain is the best place to learn the world’s second most spoken language, even if your PhD isn’t taught in it
Cultural heritage – with the third largest number of UNESCO world heritage sites in the world, lively cities and many exciting festivals, Spain has no shortage of historical and cultural attractions
Climate and atmosphere – Spain offers famously sunny and comfortable weather, beautiful beaches and countryside
Affordable – the cost of living in Spain and tuition fees are relatively low for doctoral students compared to the rest of Europe
