Visiting in Spain for up to three months does not have any residency requirements. Before the ninety days are up, those who wish to reside should apply for residency status. The exception to the 3 months rule is for jobseekers actively seeking work who can stay for six months. In some EU countries, you are also required to report your presence within a reasonable time after arrival allowing the EU country to be aware of population movement in their territory.
There are no regulations in place either in the EU Directives or the Spanish Royal Decrees about long term holidaymakers. CAB Spain suggest that you ask at the ‘Policia Nacional? if they wish to know that you will be staying for an extended period.
After the 90 days period, if you do not apply for residency you can be sanctioned but must be appropriate to the violation and non/discriminatory. You cannot be expelled for violating this rule.
