speeding up Town halls in Spain

Postby USINSPAIN » Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:51 am

Hello

My lawyer presented the petition for my 1st occupation licence on my house in June he says we has been back a few times but as yet they have not produced it, is there any way a bit of pressure can be put on them to hurry them up

Thank you

June which year? :lol:

I can never get my headaround figures that compare productivity from one country to another. We had a long running , now resolved issue with IBI which if sorted promptly would have given the town hall about 1000 more euros of our money. The clerk just kept saying dont worry you wont be asked to pay previous years. He was right. I long ago gave up worrying or chasing stuff like this. No harm in you getting your lawyer to chase it for you though.

Why are you so desperate to get It? Do you need it for a specific purpose?

You could go to your catastral office in the town hall and ask politely where they are up to ... they may refer you to the Architect attached to the town hall who processes these things or they may have an on-going file they can refer to. You should have a copy of the sumission from your lawyer, or at least the catastral number of your house - take your house documents with you - and ask. If they quibble a bit, tell them it is going up for sale and you need it for that purpose.

Friends of ours needed a first occupancy licence to enable them then in turn to get their holiday property rental licence, said their lawyer. Just another way of taking money from you.

I had to apply for building permission in September 2016. No problems. I asked the builder how long we would have to wait and he said we would just go ahead(new roof) we did it and in March I received the agreement. Two months later the bill.......Manana, manana.....
