    How do I find out whether a Building Licence has been obtained for this development before instructing a lawyer ? No one at the Town Hall can confirm, as they do not speak English.

    Thanks in anticipation

    Why not try communicating with them in Spanish then? Good grief… 🙄 Why should they speak English? Or….spend some euros and employ a translator if you can’t be bothered to learn the language yourself.

    Personally, I think getting a copy of a building licence from the developer may be a little risky in this day and age (with great respect to the previous contributor).

    The copy a developer gives you may just be a copy of a building licence that has since been suspended.

    The real safe way is to go via Town Planning and get the latest up-to-date status of the licence, if necessary with the help of a lawyer. Even if it cost 100 euros – which it shouldn’t – far better than ÂŁ100,000 down the line as in my case, and many others, on another development.

    The problem? Suspended building licence!

    Also, get yourself a good, recommended, independent lawyer (not recommended by the developer or agent).

    Sofia,

    Many thanks for your advice, as a recent “reader” of this site I have read with alarm and dismay the horror stories including your own.

    Talking about horror stories, next thing is to find a “suitable” lawyer !

    I wish you well.

    If this helps, I use a translater from MW services. Marissa is very good and fully understands our problems as none speakers. She is based in Almunecar not far from Iznajar http://www.servicesmw.com.

    hope this helps.
