Hello to all. I have a question regarding my property. I brought my house 3 years ago, its a new build. I have all the needed paperwork from the Town Hall signed, sealed and stamped, my lawer says its totally legal. So having said that I’am worried as the property is in Estepona, where most of the Town Hall have been arrested for one reason or another. I have been told that no property is legal until its been signed off by the Junta de Andulica – this I dont have. Could anyone throw light on this for me??? Many thanks

Where in Estepona is the property? There are some conflict areas but most places are quite safe.
Also, might be worthwhile to write the junta a letter asking them whether the property figures as legal or not.

hi, thanks for that, my property is in Los Pedregales in the campo, not on an urbanisation. Do you know an address for the Junta?? Thanks again

I would not write to the Junta. You will not get a reply and in Spain the best way forward is let sleeping dogs lie. There maybe other ways to get the verification that you seek.

I would try searching the ‘catastro’ similar to County Property Records (in the US) https://www.sedecatastro.gob.es and search via ‘Búsqueda por localización’ and input your address (or NIF/CIF if you have one linked to your property). You’ll have to input your mail address for your Los Pedregales property.
You can try to call Catastro at ‘LÍNEA DIRECTA DEL CATASTRO: 902 37 36 35.’ Unfortunately I couldn’t find a regular number (902 numbers are more expensive). There is a webpage that list alternative numbers to 902 numbers http://wiki.nomasnumeros900.com
If ‘catastro’ looks good (your name is on your property) you are 99% safe regardless of Esteponian politics. If you can’t find your property or you find funny entries at ‘catastro’ seek legal advise. Catastro is relatively up-to-date (6-9 months lag or so, depending on different parts of Spain and when you bought your property).
hth. Good luck.
