As soon as you decide to be more than a short term tourist on the Cost del Sol you need to interact with the local government, and as an unwelcome guest bureaucracy tags along.
The reasons for having to interact with the government may be many, either to enable you to buy a property or a car, or to benefit from local services, healthcare or anything you always took for granted in your home country. The demands on you to stay legal will also differ depending on your objective, and not the least of which country is mentioned on the front of your Passport. The only common denominator is that it has to be done the Spanish way, and if you are not fluent in Spanish, the language barrier will be obvious as you cannot count on the officials to speak English.
