    Dear All

    You will find a most interesting survey published in the ‘eyeonspain’ website, on snagging and LFOs.

    It is compulsive reading especially for those of you who have purchased in a development that does not have an LFO (Cedula de habitalidad) and you are asked to complete.

    Thanks goodstitch.

    Among the many newspaper articles and reports of the last 4 months I have come across another one (31/5/06) which may be of interset to many people on the forum.

    I tried to translate -as best as I could -an article which reports on the first plenary session of the new management(gestora) of Marbella Town Hall. I think it makes very interesting reading especially for people who wait to find out what will happen with the LFOs in the developments they have bought.

    Here it goes:

    The Municipal Delegation of Town Planning works hard to unblock the 1,000 files of city-planning licenses it has on the table. The supporting data were given by Rafael Duarte yesterday, delegated spokesperson of this dept., at the end of the first ordinary plenary session that the manager of Marbella celebrates. Duarte himself admitted that this paralyzation even affects files that date from 2001 which conform to the planning in force. In his opinion, this procedure, always guaranteed by favorable technical and legal information, contrasts with the “hidden transactions and in some cases, without following a regular order, and very fast procedures” promoted by previous municipal corporations.

    In fact, the spokesman of the Town-Planning assured that, when a month and a half ago the management came to power, “the legal service of the City council was deactivated”, to which he added: “Now, it begins to work with rigor”. Indeed, in the ordinary session of yesterday, the dept. of Town Planning passed as urgent matters the 35 first city-planning licenses since the management (gestora) was created.

    The plenary session of the City council only approved seven – that conformed to the PGOU in force, whereas two were left on the table (waiting to obtain more documentation) and the remaining 26 – mainly, Licenses of First Occupation, were denied, since, the mandatory Building Licenses were approved according to the PGOU of 1998, approved by GIL thanks to their absolute majority and later annulled by the courts.

    The manager(la gestora) also rejected 25 files yesterday – of previous corporations in which the interested parties consider that their city-planning license is granted by administrative silence due to the delay on the part of Town Planning in this procedure. Three of these rejected files are Licences of first occupation, whose original license is opposed and annulled by the TSJA.

    In the other 19 cases, the manager considers that administrative silence cannot be applied, as there is opposing technical information and judicial decisions; whereas in the other three dismissed files, the plenary session decided yesterday to reject these applications by administrative silence, to reject the mandatory work licenses – approved according to the PGOU of 1998 – and to initiate the file to officially review these licenses “with invalidity vices”, Duarte added.

    City-planning subjects.
    They also debated on three ‘studies of detail’. One of them received initial approval, whilst another a partial plan of arrangement in the zone Arroyo de la Vibora was approved. This latter case had a favorable report from the Provincial Commission of Town Planning and also from the municipal technicians. Luis Cepedano, delegated spokesperson of the Works dept., was absent during the voting and the debates of this matter, since, as it was explained, he has written up the aforementioned partial plan.

    The manager commented on more than 600 businesses, that lack the license of activity due to city-planning problems. The plenary session of the City council approved yesterday unanimously to request a report from the Provincial Delegation to see whether the granting of provisional licenses to them is a viable option, until the city-planning situation allows to give a firm license.

    Problem with the La Reserva developers is they will not allow one in to carry out a snag list until the final payment is made!!!

    Hey, what have they got to hide? Too many developers have no concept of the idea that a purchaser might just be a “client”!!

    As the author of the series of articles published on eyeonspain I would like to thank you for your comments

    The situation with the licences in The costa Blanca is getting worse and even if it is in place there seems no guarntee of getting services in a timely fashion

    We have recently inspected more than 30 properties on a large development in Murcia, all of these have Certificated of Habitation in place, and more than 2 months after completion they are still waiting for electricity & gas connections

    The developer is blaming Iberdrola & Repsol the local providers but the facts are the owners cammot use their properties

    Our advise remains always insist that power & water is connected, even builders supply at time of inspection

    We test the incomming voltage and often find that it is well below 210v so be carefull with appliances
