Can a Temporary Resident Change Communes?

Once one receives temporary residency, do you need to stay in the same commune until you receive permanent residency? Or is it possible to move from one commune to another (say, from Valdivia to Linares)?

I read somewhere that there was a new law that one has to remain in the same general area while waiting on permanent residency, but I thought I should check. How could I find out for sure? Thanks.

OK, I found the post. It was on another forum. The post was from 2016. It said that you have to wait in the same general area (meaning the same Extranjería office?) for a year, until you have permanent residency.

I think I am getting the terms all confused. If I understand correctly, Temporary Residency is 2-4 months, and Permanent Residency is 9-12 months? And then after 5 years you can apply for dual citizenship?

I guess the easy thing would be to ask the Extranjer'ia when I go to see them next week if I can transfer my file to Linares, or if I need to stay there for a year.
