Acquiring a building licence is the first step if you are planning to build your home. There are further licences needed during the various stages such as proof of build or end of works to achieve the well known “licence of first occupation”. This licence will assure that you can get all the services connected and that your house is legal. There are also insurances that have to be in place. To make sure your build is carried out correctly and legally, use a good architect who follows the law and regulations of your town hall and the college of architects.

Mayor and minor works. (Obra mayor and Obra Menor). Do use an architect for licences even if the work is indoors such as replacing a kitchen or bathroom. Licences are necessary for most building works even putting up a garden shed. Those who carry out these works without one, can be heavily fined. myra@citizensadvice.org.es
