Reply To: Building Costs on Costa Del Sol


Sorry Jon, but I think you’ll find that the red tape is FAR FAR worse here than it could ever be in the UK!

You need licences for everything from building a new house from scratch to simply painting a room inside your home (in theory, although I haven’t actually met anyone who has amitted to getting the painting one yet 😀 ) and I think here there are about 5 different types of licences and you are meant to know without asking which one to apply for, some take 30 mins, others months!

Good luck….
