    We are currently looking to buy a new build property in inland town, and wondered what legal requirements we will have regarding Escritura/licence of occupation etc.
    Does someone from town hall have to come and assess completion of works etc before we should exchange at Notary?
    Any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    I can only speak from my experience.
    When the property is completed all those involved in the build;builder,electrician,plumber etc handed the necessary paperwork to the architect who then ,if work deemed satisfactory. signs the work off. The papers are then taken to the local town hall then the town hall of the region then back to the local town hall whereupon the licence of first habitation is granted. These were then given to our lawyer who gave us a copy.
    Unlike UK no-one from the town hall inspected the property.

    Without this first habitation licence the property is not legalised plus the utility companies won’t allow you your own supply of water or electricity which ,unless you were involved in the building of the property, will not be sufficient for more than basic needs and might be spasmodic in it’s supply.

    It may be different in the area you are buying however your independant lawyer,who you must have to ensure the legality of the build, will keep you informed . will organise utilities and be with you at the notaries office.
    The escritura takes about 3 or 4 months from then.

    As a buyer you should not be worrying about how to get the correct paperwork. You should simply ensure that the seller already has the correct paperwork. Use a lawyer – preferably one that you have found yourself.
