What does our management of Cédula de Habitabilidad consist of?

In addition to certifying that the building is habitable, the habitability certificate also has the function of ensuring the soundness of the property and to monitor that the conditions continue to be met and that they are maintained optimally over time.

The certificate of habitability is a document that certifies that a dwelling meets the minimum conditions of habitability required by law and that, consequently, it is suitable for use as a dwelling.

Dwellings with economic activities are considered dwellings for the purposes of the habitability certificate requirement.

What information does the certificate of occupancy contain?

The data to be included in the certificate of occupancy are the following:

  • The address of the home
  • The usable area and the number of rooms
  • Rooms and other living spaces
  • Maximum occupancy
  • Name of the requesting technician.

What is its validity period?

It is valid for 10 years and is essential to enter into a sales contract.

Is it mandatory to have a certificate of occupancy?

In any transfer, by sale, rental or transfer of use, including those derived from second and successive transfers, it is necessary to prove that the dwelling complies with the quality conditions, by means of the delivery to the acquirer of the current certificate of occupancy.

Notaries are obliged to verify its existence and incorporate it into the deed of sale.

In addition, the companies supplying electricity, water, gas, telecommunications and other services require the certificate of occupancy for the contracting of services and supplies to the dwelling. It is also an essential requirement to be able to register in the dwelling.
