From the writers of another well known Spanish comedy series, ''Aquí No Hay Quien Viva'' (Nobody Can Live Here) comes ''La Que Se Avecina'' (The Coming One), a SliceOfLife sitcom which happens in a new building called Viewpoint of Pinemountain (Mirador de Montepinar). A humorous series showing conflicts and everyday problems that face the inhabitants and workers of the building. The main characters at the start of the series are: an antisocial couple, Antonio and Berta; Enrique and his family which consists of his wife Araceli, their son Fran and Araceli's mother Charo; a newly married couple, Javi and Lola; Javi's pre-retired parents Goya and Vicente; the "annoying pest", Leo; the "Cuquis" and their three children; an antisocial defaulter; two squatters, Izascun and Maritere; two brothers, Sergio and Joaquín Arias; the porter Maxi and the gardener Coque, and some others.

In Season 2, Raquel's cousin Nines was introduced. From Season 3 onwards, every character from the first two seasons becomes a flanderized version of himself/herself. Sergio and Joaquín Arias, Cris, Araceli, Charo and other minor characters left the series, and new characters were introduced: Judith Becker, a psychologist in her thirties, and Estela Reynolds, who is Lola's eccentric mother and quickly becomes the series' main protagonist along with Antonio and Amador. At the end of Season 4, Maritere, Goya and Estela abandon the series. In Season 5, Araceli comes back with her girlfriend Reyes, one of the two new characters introduced that season, with the other one being Justi, Amador's mother. In Season 6, neither Reyes nor Justi reappear, but does Sergio Arias, who, however, doesn't stay in Season 7 and neither does Fran, Maxi nor Izascun. Fermín Trujillo, Lola's father, and Rebeca Ortiz, Judith's lawyer and friend, are the new characters introduced this season, although Fermín's first appearance was nearly the end of Season 6. Estela too reappears in the Season 6 finale and is a lead character in Season 7.

Other secondary characters that appear in the series include Parrales, Antonio's employee, Violeta, Antonio's schizophrenic sister, Álvaro, Antonio and Berta's son, "La Chusa", Coque's junkie ex-girlfriend, Judith's sister Ingrid and her husband Matthew, Berta's priest, the mayor and the director of "Internado Sangriento", among many others.

----
!!This show provides examples of:
* AbsenteeActor: In season 6, Araceli is absent in some episodes, because the actress, Isabel Ordaz, was also doing a play at the time. She is absent in the second half of Season 7 too.
** [[CommutingOnABus Maritere also disappeared mid-season 4]], and reappeared for the final episodes. In season 5, she doesn't appear.
** Judith and Raquel are both absent in the first half of Season 7.
* {{Adorkable}}: By characterization, Javi, Enrique and Parrales are this trope.
* AFriendInNeed: In Season 3, after the "Cuquis" break up, Amador's friend Leo lets him stay at his place for a few months. Leo also lent 50.000 euros to Amador [[ThePowerOfFriendship in the name of friendship]] so that Amador could buy a better apartment and make up with la Cuqui. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in Season 6 and Season 7 when Leo refuses to take the "Cuquis" in after they are [[spoiler: evicted by the bank.]]
** In the Season 4 finale, Antonio breaks up with Berta and has nowhere to go so he ends up staying at his friend Enrique's flat, resulting in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. The entirety of the episode (and especially the end) [[ThePowerOfFriendship also qualifies.]] [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in Season 5 when Enrique refuses to take a homeless Antonio in. Played straight again in Season 7 when Antonio moves to Enrique's for the whole season.
* AllMenArePerverts: Indeed, with very few exceptions.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Antonio. Although he is often obsessed with women and is an absolute homophobe, his behaviour also suggests that he might not be as heterosexual as he wants to believe.
** In the Season 2 finale, he [[AnguishedDeclarationofLove confessed his love]] for his friend Enrique, kissed him and told him that he was gay, yet in the Season 3 premiere that fact was not acknowledged by neither Antonio nor Enrique and the writers basically acted like it never happened.
** Throughout the series he's kissed other men, got an erection due to a male massager, masturbated in front of Enrique, [[DidTheyOrDidntThey it's assumed]] that he had sex with Enrique once while both were high when they could have hooked up with two sexy women, and [[OnlyFriend has a]] [[AllTakeAndNoGive psychotically]] [[LivingEmotionalCrutch co-dependent]] [[HomoeroticSubtext obsession]] [[FriendVersusLover with]] [[LoveMartyr Enrique]], to the point that he cares more about him than about his own wife.
** Other characters like Vicente, Judith, Raquel, Estela and others also have had gay tendencies at some point in the series.
* AmicableExes: Enrique and Araceli, Maxi and Izascun, Leo and Nines, Berta and Coque.
* AnalogyBackfire
* {{Asexuality}}: Vicente and Nines are the only two (adult) characters in the entire series who are completely uninterested in sex.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in Season 7, when Nines starts dating Coque and Vicente begins to show interest in having sex.
* AsideGlance: Judith does this twice, and both times are hilarious.
* AskAStupidQuestion
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: The "Cuquis", Enrique and Judith, Enrique and Antonio, and Fermín and Estela.
* AxCrazy: Antonio. To the point that his schizophrenic younger sister Violeta looks '''SANE''' in comparison.
* BadDreams: Enrique had these after [[spoiler:he was kidnapped for four months between Season 3 and Season 4.]]
* BadLiar: Amador.
* BeingGoodSucks: [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] by most neighbours with regard to Enrique as they rightfully think he's too much of a good guy.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Antonio's sister, Violeta, can be very deadly when she is jealous.
* BigBad: Antonio is often portrayed this way, due to his obsession to [[TakeOvertheWorld take over the community]].
* BiggerBad: Germán Palomares. He's responsible for all the evil things Antonio is not involved with, rarely appears and, unlike Antonio, his evil deeds are taken ''completely seriously''. [[spoiler: Oh, and he was the one who kidnapped Enrique]].
* BigEater: Coque is a mild version of this in later seasons.
* BigScrewedUpFamily
** The Rivas-Figueroa family: Starting with the "Cuquis", who are both [[ThisLoserIsYou very flawed]] [[DeusAngstMachina and unlucky]] and [[DivorceAssetsConflict are]] [[SlapSlapKiss always]] [[BreakUpMakeUpScenario fighting]]; their fourth child's father [[YourCheatingHeart is not Amador but a neighbor that la Cuqui had sex with]], and he has autistic-like issues; [[spoiler:Amador accidentally caused la Cuqui's father to have a heart-attack and died]], and as a result her mother is in a constant depression; Amador's father is [[ArmouredClosetGay a closeted gay]] who [[ParentalNeglect never cared about him]]; Amador's got eleven flawed siblings to whom he's not close; and in later seasons [[spoiler:the "Cuquis" are unemployed and homeless and la Cuqui has to serve time in jail for stealing in her workplace.]]
** The Recio-Escobar family: Antonio is an [[AxCrazy extremely]] [[JerKass flawed]] [[ManipulativeBastard character]] and Berta [[YourCheatingHeart had an affair]] and is [[AllTakeAndNoGive unhappy]] [[LoveMartyr with]] Antonio; their son lives abroad and is gay, [[GayAesop much to their parents' disgust]]; Antonio had another son with Nines through IVF, -the boy was a "birthday present" for Berta but she didn't want more children- and [[IHaveNoSon he doesn't care much]] [[ParentalNeglect about either of his sons]]; Antonio's dead parents [[ParentalNeglect were neglectful]] and in Season 6 he found out [[spoiler:[[ParentalAbandonment he was adopted]]]]; his sister Violeta is [[CloudCuckooLander schizophrenic]]; Berta's mother is [[TheCynic a pessimist]] [[ButtMonkey who's always in pain]] and her father despises Antonio; and in Season 7, Antonio and Berta [[DivorceAssetsConflict divorce each other]] and Berta [[BiTheWay comes out of the closet]] and has a short relationship with Enrique's ex-wife Araceli before [[spoiler:making up with Antonio again in the season finale.]]
** The Pastor family: Enrique's wife abandoned him with a note in the second season; she came back years later as a lesbian and has left him again several times; Enrique was kidnapped for four months in the Season 3 finale and as a result suffered from PTSD during the fourth season; his son Fran dropped out of school and is a rebellious teenager who in late Season 6 moves to Brazil [[MayDecemberRomance with his over thirty-years-old girlfriend]]; Enrique doesn't have contact with his [[ParentalNeglect terrible father]] who is also [[DirtyOldMan a pervert]] and extended family; he starts dating [[MayDecemberRomance a much younger]] woman, Judith, with whom he [[LoveMartyr had a]] [[SlapSlapKiss poisonous]] [[BreakUpMakeUpScenario relationship]] until [[spoiler:they get married at the end of Season 5]]; [[spoiler:Judith fakes her pregnancy and later on fakes losing her baby, which results in a [[LoveHurts heartbroken]] Enrique leaving her]]; [[spoiler:Judith turns out to actually be pregnant but moves to Chicago without telling Enrique and in Season 7 they divorce each other.]]
** The Maroto-Trujillo family: Starting with Javi and Lola's marital issues; Javi (nearly) had [[YourCheatingHeart an affair]] with Lola's friend Raquel and they spent the whole sixth season at odds; in Season 7 they have a baby but Lola has post-partum depression and in the season finale [[spoiler:she decides to stay in Colombia and join the FARC]]; Javi's parents, Goya and Vicente, [[TheMasochismTango can't stand each other]]; [[spoiler:Goya [[KilledOffForReal dies]]]] in the Season 4 finale; Estela, Lola's [[ParentalNeglect neglectful mother]], is [[HystericalWoman mentally unstable]] and [[DramaQueen drives]] [[ReallyGetsAround everyone]] [[AttentionWhore crazy]]; and she has a [[SlapSlapKiss love-hate]] [[CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem relationship]] with Lola's father Fermín who [[ParentalAbandonment Lola never met until now.]]
* BilingualBonus: Matthew, who is a native English-speaker, whenever he speaks in English. Other characters have sometimes spoken in English but the vast majority of the characters are not bilingual, and in fact have a very poor knowledge of English or any other language that is not Spanish.
* BiTheWay: Araceli and Berta, from Season 5 and Season 7 onwards respectively.
* BittersweetEnding: All the season finales can be seen as this, except for Season 1 and [[CanonDiscontinuity Season 2]].
** Season 3 ends with [[spoiler:Berta leaving Antonio and Enrique being kidnapped by the defaulter.]]
** Season 4 ends with [[spoiler:Antonio discovering that one of his only friends, Coque, is his wife's lover. Also, Goya dies and Lola throws Estela out of her house because of Estela lying to Lola about who her real father is.]]
** Season 5 ends with [[spoiler:Araceli leaving Enrique and Reyes at the altar (but Enrique then marries Judith), and Amador is forced to move to his mother's town, separated from his friends.]]
** Season 6 ends with [[spoiler:Enrique and Judith breaking up and Judith discovering that she is pregnant, and the "Cuquis" being evicted by the bank.]]
** Season 7 ends with [[spoiler:La Cuqui having to do time in jail for at least 6 months and Lola abandoning her family to join the FARC. It's, however, one of the happiest season finales of the series because Antonio and Berta reconcile and Enrique and Judith agree on joint custody of their son Dylan.]]
* BlackComedy
* BlatantLies: Lots of times, especially Amador's lies to la Cuqui about his jobs and money. Also, Enrique's lies to Antonio in Seasons 3 and 4 to protect him from finding out [[YourCheatingHeart the truth]] and killing Coque.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Nines says that all blondes are evil. And it looks as if all bald men are evil, too.
* BookDumb: Amador. He's usually misspelling words and expressions, which results in Leo [[BookWorm correcting him]] [[DeadpanSnarker every time]], much to Amador's annoyance.
** Fran, too, who used to get very bad grades until he dropped out of school. Nines doesn't have a formal education either.
* BreakoutCharacter: Estela Reynolds, who was introduced as a supporting character to Javi and Lola, became surprisingly popular in season 3 (the season in which she appears for the first time). Season 4 has a plot centered around her in every episode, and Javi and Lola became HER supporting characters.
* BreakTheHaughty: Antonio, definitely. Estela as well, to a lesser degree.
* BrutalHonesty: Nines.
* TheBusCameBack: Araceli returns to Mirador de Montepinar in season 5 after leaving at the beginning of season 2.
** Also, Estela Reynolds reappears in the final episode of season 6 and is back in season 7 as a lead character for the whole season.
** Sergio Arias comes back in Season 6 but doesn't appear in Season 7.
* BuildingOfAdventure: Naturally, as the show is set in an apartment building, although in later seasons, scenes outside the building became a regular occurrence.
* ButtMonkey: Nearly every character is this, but the most prominent ones are Antonio, Amador, Javi and Enrique.
* ButchLesbian: Reyes.
* CasanovaWannabe: Amador.
* CassandraGambit
* CatchPhrase: The series is full of catch phrases and most characters have several of their own. Just to name a few:
** Antonio: "Ok then I confiscate your doormat!", and to Enrique: "Enrique, you're very negative. You undermine my morale!"
** Amador: "You want salami?", and to Leo: "But don't touch me... Why do you touch me?"
** Leo, to Amador: "Amador you owe me 50.000 euros."
** Estela: "Coffee?! In the morning?!"
** Coque: "One little thing that comes to mind..."
* CatFight: A lot of times; between la Cuqui and Goya, Judith and Raquel, Raquel and Lola... The show loves this trope.
* CelebrityParadox: La Chusa, Coque's ex-girlfriend, is played by the famous spanish actress Paz Padilla. When Coque sees a Paz Padilla's poster, he says: [[LampshadeHanging "Hey, that woman looks like la Chusa!"]].
* ChristmasEpisode: Episode 4x00, which was made to be broadcasted on Christmas.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Most of the characters are this, but the most prominent example is Antonio's sister, Violeta.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Coque never gets the other characters' comments and jokes.
** Other tropes that fit him sometimes: SarcasmBlind, LiteralMinded and DerailedTrainOfThought.
* ComicTrio: Antonio, Enrique and Coque usually act as this with Antonio being the leader, Coque being the blindly obedient one and Enrique being the OnlySaneMan.
* ContinuityNod: Season 6 is full of this. This is due to the popularity of the previous seasons thanks to the reruns of the show.
* CorruptPolitician: The mayor.
* CoverInnocentEyesAndEars: La Cuqui does this sometimes with her children whenever she and Amador are having an inappropriate conversation.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Amador tends to be this way with la Cuqui. Also, Antonio, during Season 4 after his wife confessed to him that she had a lover.
* DaddyDNATest
* DawsonCasting: InUniverse example: Lola, who is in her thirties, plays Lucrecia in ''Bloody Boarding School'', who is a teenager.
* DeusAngstMachina: Antonio. And to a lesser extent, the "Cuquis", Javi and Enrique.
* DeadpanSnarker: Nines, Leo and Fran are the most prominent examples.
* DemotedToExtra: Enrique's son, Fran, loses importance from Season 4 onwards.
** Also Izaskun and Maritere, who were very important characters in Season 1, after Season 2 became supporting characters that (very) rarely starred some plots.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper
* DirtyOldMan: Enrique's father.
* TheDitz: Coque, and to a lesser extent, Maritere.
** Coque [[TooDumbToFool may not be]] [[DumbassHasAPoint as stupid as he seems.]]
* DivorceAssetsConflict: The "Cuquis" after [[spoiler:Amador finds out the son his wife carries is from Sergio Arias. They eventually get divorced but remarry in the Season 6 premiere.]]
** In Season 7, Berta wants to divorce Antonio and the two quickly are at war, with Antonio refusing to give in to her demands and throwing Berta out of their house. As a result, Antonio ends up temporarily losing the flat to her and has to go live at Enrique's. [[spoiler:They end up getting divorced but reconcile in the season 7 finale.]]
** Enrique and Judith, in season 7 too, [[spoiler:who do get divorced as well and in joint custody of their son Dylan.]]
* DoesNotLikeMen: Reyes and Nines.
* DumbBlonde: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Raquel.
* DysfunctionalFamily: The most prominent examples are the "Cuquis", the Maroto-Trujillo family, the Recio-Escobar family and the Pastor family.
* DysfunctionJunction: Indeed.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first two seasons are very different from the following ones. Many fans agree that after Season 3, the show got better.
* {{Expy}}: Enrique Pastor is basically [[AquiNoHayQuienViva Juan Cuesta]] with his name changed.
** Araceli, who was a DeadpanSnarker in Season 1, became an {{Expy}} of [[AquiNoHayQuienViva La Hierbas]] when she reappeared in Season 5. Both characters were played by the same actress.
* EasilyForgiven: Played UpToEleven with Enrique when it comes to Judith's and Antonio's wrongdoings. In one episode from Season 4, Antonio wrongly thought that his friend Enrique was Berta's lover, and hired a hitman to kill him. In the next episode they were friends again, and only three episodes later, [[spoiler:Enrique resigned as President of the Community which was what he had always wanted the most for Antonio.]]
* EccentricMentor: Maxi, to Amador and his friends.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Antonio suffered a great deal when he found out that he [[spoiler:was adopted in Season 6, and went to great extents to find his beloved mom.]] He also seemed very affected by his [[ParentalNeglect adopted mother's neglect.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Antonio may be [[JerKass a total jerkass]] but he still cares deeply about (very few) people even if he [[ManipulativeBastard treats them horribly]] [[AllTakeAndNoGive most of the time]], those being Berta, Enrique and Coque.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Antonio won't accept bribes and will go to great extents to punish corrupt politicians. He also won't kill his loved ones, since he [[spoiler:had to hire a hitman to kill Enrique because he couldn't do it himself, and couldn't kill his other friend Coque at gunpoint either.]]
* ExiledToTheCouch: Happens many times throughout the series with several different couples.
** Instead of the couch, Amador ends up sleeping in his children's bedroom.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Fermín and Estela.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Antonio and Enrique, who almost always end up sleeping in the same bed whenever Antonio has come over at Enrique's even if Enrique's angry with him.
** Nines usually sleeps on the couch [[LazyBum for reasons]] [[UngratefulBastard that have nothing to do]] [[BlackSheep with couple quarrels.]]
* ExtremeDoormat: Coque and Vicente are the most prominent examples, although Javi, Enrique and Berta fit this as well to an extent.
* FamilyBusiness: To some degree, "Mariscos Recio", with Antonio, Berta, Violeta and Nines all helping with Antonio's small fish shop at some point in the series. However, Antonio and his employee Parrales are generally the ones who run the business.
* FidelityTest
* {{Flanderization}}: Every character is a flanderized version of himself/herself from the first two seasons.
** Antonio Recio was a religious man with sociopathic traits who [[AllMenArePerverts liked women]]. From Season 3 onwards, he is a lustful man who is always asking about Judith's private parts and usually asking Enrique to going to prostitutes.
** Berta was a very religious woman, often seen as TheFundamentalist, but she had other interests. After Season 5, she becomes TheFundamentalist fully. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that after hitting her head, she thought she saw the Virgin.
** Coque was a not very smart pothead. From Season 3 onwards, he becomes totally stupid.
** Amador, who in the first seasons showed some traits of being rude and uncultured but who was also a good father, becomes a rough-spoken jerk obsessed with women who usually forgets about his children. Eventually [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] by his wife, who angrily asks if he's been always so stupid.
* ForgottenAnniversary: Antonio hardly ever remembers his wedding anniversary and it's Berta who has to remind him.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Coque and Nines, in Season 7.
* FunctionalAddict: Coque
* TheFundamentalist: Berta.
* {{Gayngst}}: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Berta, who accepts her bisexuality after she confesses it to her priest and he absolves her of her "sin".
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The series, initially considered child-friendly, had to edit and cut its episodes when airing during children programming hours in later seasons due to the series usually showing sex and masturbation scenes, swear words, alcohol and drugs abuse, racist, sexist and homophobic behaviour, mild violence etc.
* GladIThoughtOfIt: Antonio does this sometimes when Enrique or Coque have an idea.
* GoldDigger: [[spoiler:Manolita, a woman who seduced Antonio to take his money.]]
* GranolaGirl: Araceli.
** HippieParents
* GuessWhoImMarrying
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: La Cuqui, and to a lesser degree, Judith, are a mild version of this.
* HatesBeingTouched: Amador, with regards to Leo, [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace who never]] [[CuddleBug gives up]].
** However, is averted once, and even switched roles on occasion.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Amador and Leo. Antonio and Enrique, too, although the heterosexual part is [[HoYay debatable]].
* HeyThatsMyLine: Often Antonio's response when Enrique says Antonio's catch phrases.
* HolierThanThou: Antonio and Berta, to a degree.
* HouseWife: Berta.
* HystericalWoman: Estela ''is'' this trope.
** Also, DramaQueen, AttentionWhore and ReallyGetsAround fit her perfectly as well.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Antonio and Estela are the most prominent examples. They often act like they're better than other people, but it's just a façade as deep down they know it's not true.
* InSeriesNickname: Too many for most characters, from "Rancio" to "Papuchi" to "Friki" to "Bicho" and many others.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Antonio.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Amador. Antonio and Estela have (very) few moments too.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Sergio Arias. Antonio was flanderized onto these in later seasons, due to AesopAmnesia.
* JerkassBall: Everyone in the show has held it at least once.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Goya]] is the only main character who has been killed off. They tried for it to be PlayedForLaughs, but failed.
* KilledOffScreen: Izaskun in season 7, after Marivi Bilbao, who played her, passed away shortly after the end of season 6.
* KnightOfCerebus: When Germán Palomares [[TheGhost shows up]], things get deadly serious. Made more terrifying that [[TheFaceless his face is never seen]].
* LazyBum: Vicente and Nines.
** LazyHusband: In Vicente's case.
* LiesToChildren: Used frequently with the "Cuquis", to their children.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The series usually has around 15 recurring characters and that doesn't even include minor characters like the Cuquis' children, Antonio's employee Parrales or Enrique's son Fran.
* LonelyTogether: Javi and Vicente in Season 5, and Antonio and Enrique in Season 7.
* LongDistanceRelationship: Javi and Lola, the few times Lola has left the country for work-related reasons for a few months.
* LoserProtagonist: Amador, ''so much''.
* LovableSexManiac: Antonio.
* LoveHungry: Estela, which is why she sleeps with so many people.
** Antonio, too. This is why he has such a strong emotional co-dependency with Berta and Enrique. [[spoiler:This also serves as Antonio's main motivation to find his birth parents.]]
* LoveHurts
* LoveMartyr: Berta and Enrique are this to Antonio. Also, Enrique with Judith and Javi with Lola.
* LoveTriangle: Amador/Maite/Sergio, Antonio/Berta/Coque, Reyes/Araceli/Enrique/Judith, Lola/Javi/Raquel etc.
* LoveObstructingParents: Javi's mother Goya.
* MakeUpOrBreakUp: The series is fond of this trope. Some examples include the "Cuquis", Javi and Lola, Antonio and Berta and Enrique and Judith. It's happened more than once for all of these couples.
** BreakUpMakeUpScenario
* ManChild: Amador.
* ManHug: Between Antonio and Enrique, lots of times.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Amador and Leo, see HatesBeingTouched above.
** Also, Coque with Antonio and Enrique sometimes.

* TheMasochismTango: Goya and Vicente, Estela and Fermín.
* MayDecemberRomance: Judith, who is thirty-something years old, and Enrique, who is in his mid-fifties.
* MistakenForGay: Amador when he moved with Leo.
* MoodWhiplash: Episode 10 from season 6. It's a very funny one with great moments but ends with the Cuquis crying after [[spoiler:the bank evicts them.]]
* MrFanservice: Amador, definitely, every time he dresses up as "Espartaco" or wants to get laid, which practically happens in every other episode.
* MsFanservice: Judith, Lola and Raquel are often seen only wearing their underwear.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Antonio. Except that he is never actually able to murder anyone.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Antonio with Violeta due to her being mentally handicapped. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Amador and in episode 6x09 when Antonio sets her up as a prostitute to attract clients to his casino.
* MythologyGag: To its 'predecessor' Aquí No Hay Quien Viva.
** In the Season 2 Finale, Enrique says he's going to move out. He mentions having seen an apartment in Desengaño Street. The Original Series took place in Desengaño 21.
** In Season 6, Fernando Tejero plays Fermín, Lola's dad. When Fermin sees Enrique (José Luis Gil) and Maxi (Eduardo Gómez), he recalls knowing them from somewhere else. Fernando Tejero's character in Aqui No Hay Quien Viva, Emilio, was the son of Eduardo's character and had a father-son relationship with Jose Luis Gil's one.
* {{Nerd}}: Leo, naturally.
** NerdGlasses
* NeverMyFault: Antonio and Estela.

Paco and Manolo, a gay couple that appear as guest stars in Seasons 6 and 7, are around fifty.
* NobodyThinksItWillWork: Nearly every one of the neighbours and [[FriendVersusLover especially]] Antonio thought Enrique and Judith's relationship wouldn't work. [[spoiler:It finally doesn't as they get divorced in the season 7 finale.]]
** WhatDoesSheSeeInHim
* NoMeansYes: Antonio has a tendency to think that when Enrique says "No", he means "Yes", and will just go ahead and explain to him his mater plan, much to Enrique's frustration.
* NosyNeighbor: Basically the core of the show. Almost every character is this.
* NotSoDifferent: Antonio and Enrique. The latter starts acting more and more like Antonio as time goes by. He even lampshades it in one episode from Season 7 when he says that he spends too much time with Antonio after suggesting he kills a neighbour, much to Araceli's astonishment.
* NiceGuy: Parrales, Enrique and Javi.
* OddFriendship: Between Antonio and Enrique.
** They also qualify as WithFriendsLikeThese, VitriolicBestBuds and LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.
* OnePersonBirthdayParty: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in Season 5 with la Cuqui. Her casual friends didn't come to the party because her closest friends and family had prepared a more private, surprise party for her.

* OnlySaneMan: Enrique.
** NotSoAboveItAll: Sometimes.
** By season 7, he is not the OnlySaneMan in the community anymore. Rebeca is introduced in season 7 only to fill this rol. He's still the OnlySaneMan in the A-Team, though.
* TheOtherDarrin: Álvaro, Antonio and Berta's son, is played by a different actor when he reappears on seasons 2 and 3.
* ParentalAbandonment: Enrique's parents, Antonio's parents [[spoiler:and his birth ones]], la Cuqui's father, [[spoiler:Javi's mother Goya]] and Lola's dad Fermín, although [[DaddyHadaGoodReasonforAbandoningYou he had his reasons]].
* ParentalFavoritism: Judith's father, who always paid more attention to Judith's sister, Ingrid. [[spoiler:He dies in Season 6.]]
* ParentalNeglect: Antonio's parents and Antonio himself towards his sons, Enrique's father, Amador's father, Lola's mother Estela, Nines towards her son and Judith and Lola towards their newly-born babies ([[JustifiedTrope justified]] in Lola's case in that she has post-partum depression).
* ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime: Has happened more than once to Amador and his hooks-ups with his mother Justi.
* PleaseDontLeaveMe
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Antonio, who is a proud racist, sexist and homophobe.
* {{Poltergeist}}: In episode 2.07 - A trio, a cleaning lady and a rain of cauliflowers.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: Violeta for Enrique and Amador, la Chusa for Coque. Rebeca has her own psycho ex-boyfriend, who stalks her to the point that she had to move to another apartment.
* PunnyName: The title is likely a pun on the phrase "la vecina" (the neighbor woman).
* PutOnABus: A lot of characters are put on a bus and don't appear again. Some examples:
** Araceli is PutOnABus in season 2. Fortunately, TheBusCameBack in Season 5.

** Reyes and Justi appeared only in season 5, and they don't reappear in season 6.
** Izaskun is put on a bus in late Season 6 due to the actress quitting because of her age.
** Maxi, Fran and Parrales are put on a bus at the end of Season 6.
** Estela leaves the show once again at the end of season 7.
