Investigate the urban situation of the property is essential to avoid problems and unpleasant surprises in the purchase of a home in Spain.
If you intend to buy a plot with or without pre-existing buildings must know what their urban situation for two reasons:
First because the urban classification of the land as urban, developable, rustic or rustic protected will determine the fate that can be given to this area, which may or may not be built and the volume of build able.
Secondly because you must ensure that there are no prior urban violations and that there are no pending compliance urban duties. We must re-member at this point that the buyer of a property occupies the position of the seller in respect of violations and outstanding urban duties.
The investigation of the urban situation of the property is verified in the local council, where two types of certificates can be obtained:
The certificate on the urban situation of the property that informs us about the urban classification of the land, its destination, volume and type of permitted construction and urban duties pending compliance.
The certificate of urban violations that informs us about the existence or not of opening inquiries about urban infractions over the property.
