Hi all, has anybody ever fallen foul of overstaying the 90 day limit in Europe?
The regulations state no more than 90 days in any 180 period!!!

No they don't.

Do you mean Europe (the continent, made up of 53 countries including the UK) or the European Union (a political club consisting of just 28 out of the 53 countries in Europe)?

Short while after a gap of many years.

90 consecutive days in any one EU country is the rule - there is plenty of info and posts here on this subject if you look for them :)

Yes for you & always has been.
90 consecutive days & you are automatically a Spanish resident. Regardless of the fact that you haven't registered. Yes you might have been doing it for years & no one is bothered but in the unfortunate event of something occurring bringing you to the attention of officialdom then the roof could fall in.

There are one or two other factors to consider re the 90 days away. For example there is the question of occupancy of your home with regard to your house insurance, your travel insurance re the duration of a single trip, and finally your registration at your GP in the UK which technically entitles the GP to strike you off, if you're out of the country for more than 3 months.
