Reply To: Habitation Certificates


Can anyone tell me the year habitacion certificates were introduced.

My neighbours’ house was completed six months before ours and then sold on to the present residents in November 2002. The original owners didn’t move in. Ours was completed in February 2003.

Our neighbours’ legal advisor arranged for their electricity bills to be in their name. Like us they don’t have a building licence, nor a habitacion certificate.

We pay our electricity by direct debit to Sevillana, but the bill is in the builder’s name.
