I stay in Lanzarote for six months in the winter do I need to become a resident?

I'm asking the same question, so if you get a reply please let me know. I suspect if Brexit happens then you will need residency because I think the limit is 3 months post Brexit. 

Quite how we go about getting residency and who may help is the gist of my question

Hi have a look at lanzaraoteguidebook.com. that gives useful information on the process. I recently applied for residency using this information but was also lucky enough to be assisted by a spanish speaking lady on this forum. If you want to talk in more detail email me on [email protected] and I can talk you through my experience. Please forward this to the other chap that is enquiring. Regards John

You never said what nationality you are. 

Are you from UK. 

If you're an EU Citizen I don't think there's a time limit.

I don't know what the situation is for British people. 

You might find some information on the links below.

It might be worth looking into getting an EU passport, if you’re entitled. For instance, if you have an Irish-born parent or even grandparent, you can get an Irish passport and then stay as long as you want.
