The risk of an inspection is high. Clients of mine are just finishing a major internal renovation in Marbella. Fortunately they did have an obra mayor licence, which their architect and I recommended, because during the renovation they had two inspections and all paperwork was demanded. All renovations done by clients of mine in recent years, either genuine obra menor or obra mayor, have been inspected during the work. I think it is poor advice by the architect although common in the past. But since the Marbella town hall corruption scandals they keep a much closer eye on what is going on. Someone will tip them off. Not only will you be fined but the work can be stopped as well until you have the right licence. Not worth the risk.
