      A new government measure will give up to 10k for those who own older flats, who want to improve accessibility, energy efficiency or just renovation.
      Is this a good move? Surely it will help create some work for building workers?

      From the article it seems the money is awarded to the comunidad de vecinos for improving energy efficiency, accessibility and the general conservation of the building as a whole. So it’s not like you can do up an individual flat and get the government to pay for it. It sounds like one of those laws that come down from the EU but in any case it is something I might propose to our comunidad de vecinos (we want to put in stair lifts to improve access to each portal). Thanks again for the link.

      Thanks for the link, i’ve already forwarded it on to our community administrator as our block is 30 years old.

      At last, maybe we’ll get something good out of the place? We already have wheelchair access (and sadly so many new buildings do not) but we’d like to look at the solar options etc.

      I do though remember a few years back a lot of old houses with green Junta de Andalucia renovation signs up where the owners were given funds to restore old town houses. Maybe along the same lines.

      In Madrid they used to dish out money for the refurbishment of very old buildings, but this is the first I’ve heard of funding for renovating more recent buildings

      Imagine how much will end up in the wrong pockets. Things like this always backfire.
