I have a villa normal thing illegal and i paid approx 150000euros i recently went with an engineer to register for my escruturia under 4 yr rule but thinks that the engineer put value of house at 70000euros i am worried about getting into trouble and would prefer value closer to the true figure can this be done now or what problems can i get if left at 70k i havent got any documentation and was told that the full escruturia would be available around march it just seems every time i put trust in spanish professionals i give myself extreme worries.

When we did this last year, the price declared on the Escritura was suggested by the gestor in relation to the valor catastral of the property.
I, too, wonder about this.

I hesitate to depress you but in today’s market your ‘engineer’ may just be about correct with the valuation.
I should not complain too much if I were you.

I may be mistaken but I thought the 4 year rule did not now apply under new law.

In what way Katy?

I had heard that too Katy. I had heard that after July 2007, this way to get legal had been closed off. This route had been abused for many years by developers who did not get permissions to build, but could get an escritura this way given enough time and if no objections/denuncias had been made.
Unfortunately, just having an escritura doesn’t make a property legal. If it has been built on the wrong type of land – non urbanizable – it will still be classed as illegal. A license of habitation may not have been issued too.

As I understand it, looking at the http://www.soha.es website and the AUAN website, no house is legal without a habitation licence.
However, the antiquity rule can be used to register a house in the Land Registry. A certificate of antiquity proves that the house is over 4 years old and cannot be legally bulldozed, unless it is on a rambla, protected land, right of way etc.

I thought I had read that the 4 year old rule was abolished by the Junta de Andalucía. 😕
