BRITS hoping to seek out the good life and head to Spain could have until December 2020 to make a move before new post-Brexit rules come into force. This would be mean a nineteen-month extension from the current March 2019 deadline after the EU said a little more time will help ease Britain’s exit from the bloc.In a statement, the EU said: “According to the EU position, during the transition period the whole of the EU acquis (accumulated legislation) will continue to apply to the UK as if it were a member state.“All existing EU regulatory, budgetary, supervisory, judiciary and enforcement instruments and structures will also apply, including the competence of the European Court of Justice. ”The new deadline is yet to be agreed by the British government so planning a move should be done sooner rather than later.
