    🙄 6 months after handing 4000 euros over to lawyer not scumbag agent still waiting for building licence.Every other week agent says licence is coming. Why can’t they be honest? Thankfully I’ve been following this site. We received documentation in December all in Spanish. We translated them all in a week,all the legal terms. In fact the licence was only submitted to Council 12 December.

    Anyway agent and developer are getting desperate for 30% x 200 deposit. They now say licence has been granted and developer moving in next week to start work and bank guarantees in place. All lawyers have been contacted for clients’ monie. Contract has been exchanged but still awaiting building licence.Expected it by end of month. Do I smell a rat?

    What advice would anyone give ? I think they believe I am going to hand over 30%.What is the definition of an urban licence? 😆

    The development is out side granada so you might of thought it would be safer it might be ,but in my view they have all been tared with the same brush, im in this because i liked the development away from the coast real spain ,and im not selling it keep it 10 years and anyway would never be able to pay all that unfar tax to the spanish goverment lol, just think of all agents as slippery snakes and you will not go far wrong 🙄

    What you need to have is the Building Licence. No BL, no “legal” construction.

    In my opinion you always have to be rather strict with the duties that the Law imposes to a developer: in your case it seems that the main worrie is the building license. Well, as Drakan says: do not sign , handle monies or authorise your lawyer to sign a contract if the isn’t, clearly, a building license.

    In your case, when you talk of urban license you mean Licencia urbanística and you are talking of Licencia de Obras ( Building License)

    But, further more, don’t sign the contract if there isn’t a bank guarantee ( or a clause obliguing the developer to get it in x days or return the deposit) , copy of the project ( common and private areas) , etc, etc.

    There is a good dossier in this web site regarding the purchase of new properties from developers.
