Can anyone explain to me what the reasoning behind these is? I live in Asturias and have just purshased an obras so we can renovate our house. I simply went to the ayuntamiento with my completed form, handed over a large wad of money and got given a lovely set of stamped bits of paper in return, it all took 30 minutes!…no thinking about it, no looking at architects drawings etc…
As far as I can see, this is simply a way of the ayuntamiento getting money out of me, or as a Spanish friend put it, a tax..yet you pay IVA on the building materials, added to the builders costs etc….
Why do I need this? How does it benefit me?
The good news is that having got this, our builder is starting in January! (maybe I have answered my own questions there!)
Thanks – Merry Christmas to all,
