    I believe that the Spanish law has changed recently on the subject of solar issues.

    My builder submitted plans in 2006 and got the ok for building in that year. From January 2007 I understand that all new builds submitted for permissions had to have provision for the inclusion of solar for hot water and heating. My understanding is that matters have changed yet again and that before a new build is signed off for habitation solar panels have to be fitted and in working order irrespective of when permissions were granted. Can anyone confirm what the situation is please.

    Looking forward to someone clarifying the situation and thanking you in anticipation.

    Hi David
    I can confirm that when the Town Hall Officer is visiting your property in order to grant the habitation licence he’ll request to provide a solar panel. Until the panel is provided the house is not going to have the habitation. They usually give 15 days to sort that snag out.

    Hi David,

    That’s certainly the case up our way (Asturias) ……. I think it also applies not only to new build but any ‘licencia de obras mayor’.
