    Does anyone know how to obtain my licencia de primera ocupacion (licence of first occupation) or cedula de habitabilidad (habitation certificate).
    I was never given this when I purchased my property and the bank have asked to see it.

    Did you buy off plan through a developer? How old is the property?

    Check your dossier of house documents to make sure you really don’t have it.
    Then I would suggest that you contact the lawyer you used to purchase the property as your first port of call and request a copy.
    If you didn’t use a lawyer (or otherwise can’t contact them) then go to the urbanismo dept of your relevant town hall to request a copy.
    Do you have any reason to suspect that there may not be an LFO for your property? Is your property a one-off or part of an urbanisation? Is the development complete? Do you have utilities connected with meters and bills that you pay direct to the utility providers?
    Hopefully your lack of this document is just an oversight on somebody’s part and not something more sinister.
    As an aside, why is your bank asking to see it at this stage? Don’t answer this if you don’t want to!!!

    Thanks for helping out.

    We are connected to all utilities and have been for 2 years. We are not really an urbanisation although the builder did build 8 houses, we do not have communal pool etc. All building works were completed 2 years ago.

    We are borrowing some money against the property to build a pool.

    Does anyone know how to obtain a license of first habitation, legally?

    Unfortunately, our house was built without permissions by our developer 4 years ago, who incidentally only built 4 houses and got utilities connected illegally!
    I hope justdeans situation was an administrative oversight, but it sounds frighteningly familiar.

    We have a registered escritura with our land showing as urbana, ironically we pay IBI Urbana, however our house is actually (re the PGOU) on rural land.

    Does anyone know the process to get the PGOU altered to correspond with our Catastral record?

    Do we need to give a particular form to the Ayuntamiento? We have asked the Albox town hall re this but received no reply concerning procedures.

    You will be able to allegate once a new PGOU is open.

    Hi Maria,

    Thank you for your reply. The Albox PGOU is currently being reviewed.

    Should I go there in person and make a request to have it changed for our property? If so, do you know what form I should ask for?

    I’m sorry, but I did not understand what you meant by “allegate”.

    Regarding Marbella, the deadline is till October the 3rd and it seems the Local Council is willing to hear collectives or groups ( such as community of owners).

    For this purpose there is a meeting to be held in Marbella, next Wednesday the 12th in September.

    Best,

    M.

    Hi Maria,

    I have been told that the Albox PGOU is still under review and will probably not be made public for some months, but thank you very much for the offer of the form, it is much appreciated.

    Best regards,
    Fran
