Tenerife Relocation Guide part three Registering Births, Deaths and Marriages Births: Births must be registered within eight days at the local civil registry office (Registro Civil). It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure this is done and it must be carried out in person. In some cases the hospital, clinic or midwife will register the birth. There is quite a lot of documentation required so contact your local Registry office; these can be found in Arona, Granadilla, and Santa Cruz. The offices can be found on the internet and you are able to download the required documents for completion and presentation at that office. Deaths: The death of a relative or friend is always distressing. Spanish Funeral Companies are very professional and are used to dealing with foreigners. (They usually have an English speaking staff member available) Following the death of a British national in Spain, their next of kin, or a formally appointed representative, must decide whether to repatriate the deceased to the UK, or carry out a local burial or cremation. If the deceased was covered by travel insurance, it is important for next of kin to contact the insurance company without delay otherwise costs must be met by the family. There is no obligation for the death overseas of a British national to be registered with the British Embassy. However, there are the advantages that a British form of death certificate is then available, and that a record of the death is afterwards held at the General Register Office in the UK. To apply from within the UK, you should contact Nationality and Passports Section of Consular Directorate in London. If you are applying from Tenerife, you should contact the nearest Consulate which is in Santa Cruz. You will find a huge amount of information on their website. Marriage: The process for civil marriage begins with the application for a certificate of permission to marry (Certificado de Capacidad Matrimonial). Couples wishing to marry must apply for this certificate in advance of the wedding. It is issued on condition that the applicants fulfill the legal right to marry and provide a well-founded reason for requesting it.


Property Magazine June 2011| Sunway Tenerife The Estate Agents

Application can be made at the Civil Registry (Registro Civil), District Court (Juzgado) or, in some cases, the Town Hall in the place where the marriage is to be held. A marriage certificate certifying the date, time, place of the marriage and details of the married couple is issued by the Civil Registry.

Homecare - Nursing: You may find yourself or your loved one in need of Homecare here in Tenerife. Initially, it is best to speak to your local Medical centre (assuming you have Health cover and are registered) they should advise you on any help available locally. If you decide to employ someone privately, maybe someone has been sent home after an operation or injury: whether it be for short or long-term care, there is Private Nursing Care available that offers immediate practical, physical, psychological support and rehabilitation. Many offer practical help in the home, dressings and sorting out medications. They can provide meals and have various disability aids to rent. Before you decide to employ anyone privately, be sure you speak to them first about qualifications…ask if they are a fully legal company and all are staff covered by insurance. English TV, Internet & Telephone: To get your telephone or ADSL connected you will need to call one of the telecommunications companies, such as Direct Telecom, Telefonica or you can drop into your local Movistar shops where they will be happy to help you. For Telefonica, call their Customer Service Department (1004). If you can't speak Spanish, simply say "English por favor" and they will say "one moment please" or "un momento por favor" they will then put you through to someone who can speak English. You will need the following details: Name, Address, Passport or N.I.E Number and your Bank Account details.

Why buy a property in these areas? Travelling along the West coast of Tenerife, you will eventually come across Playa Paraiso, Callao Salvaje and Playa San Juan: Not as well known as the most popular tourist areas such as Los Cristianos and Las Americas, here, they have more to offer than large Shopping Centers, Bars and booming Discos… Below is a general overview for each of these coastal villages and what you can expect to pay should you decide to buy: Buying a 2 bedroom apartment in any of the following areas: Playa Paraiso

Playa Paraiso, (translated means Paradise Beach). This is a purpose built resort that is part of the municipal district of Adeje on the west coast of Tenerife, sandwiched midway between the resort centres of Playa de las Americas and Callao Salvaje. Being a relatively small resort, the range and number of shops around the town is also somewhat limited. Living here most people don’t experience too much difficulty finding the everyday holiday essentials. For a wider selection of bars, shops and restaurants etc it's worthwhile remembering that Playa de las Americas is only 10 minutes away by taxi from the resort centre. There is also a good Bus route, so you can slip into the towns and come back to the peace and quiet as often as you wish. Average Prices for 2 bedroom apartments: €180,000 6
