Regularising your home or extending your home in Spain.

Regularize your home or  extension of your home in  Spain. 

Do you have a dwelling or extension to a dwelling that is not registered in the Land Registry , nor in the Cadastre? 

Sometimes, when for example you are going to sell your house, it can happen that in  the Registry it does not appear described as it is in reality. It may be that the  extensions that have been made are not reflected in the Registry. Another example  would be when you go to the Registry to get information about the deeds of your  property and the reality does not match the description, an inherited house that in the  deeds only appears the plot but not the building... If this is your case we explain you  how you can proceed to correctly register an existing building, an extension or other  elements in the Land Registry. The procedure that regulates it is the DECLARATION  OF ANTIQUE NEW BUILDING. 

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR HOUSE DOES NOT MATCH WHAT IS DESCRIBED IN THE REGISTRY?

Not always, and it is more common than what we can think, the physical reality of  our property, that is to say what we perceive, we live, what exists physically is not  what legally is written in the Registry. That is to say, it differs from the registry Reality  that is the information relative to the property that appears in the Registry of the  Property. 

This may derive from an undeclared extension, buildings out of order, pre-existing  constructions to planning, or even may not be registered for other reasons other than  purely urbanistic, such as avoiding paying higher taxes or simply ignorance of the  rule. 

This does not mean that we cannot adapt the registry reality to what physically  exists, and this is done through the REGISTRAR'S DECLARATION. 

There are two options for declaring these buildings or constructions: LEGALIZE A CONSTRUCTION SITE 

We usually call Legalization when the construction is less than 10 years old and  therefore we have to request the License from the City Hall. 

REGULARIZE A CONSTRUCTION SITE 

If the house was completed more than 10 years ago, we can proceed to regularize it  due to its age, this case is simpler, cheaper, faster and easier. 

 

HOW TO REGULARIZE A HOME OR HOME EXTENSION? 

To deed a property and register it in the Property Registry in order to make its  existence and age public and reliable, thus we will have recognized rights over the  property. 

In order for a building - a dwelling or other construction - to meet the requirements  for Regularization, it must have the following characteristics:

1. Possess a title deed of said dwelling 

2. This deed must be registered in the Property Registry. 

3. Pay all taxes, contributions and fees for said property. 

4. Have almost the same rights as a legal dwelling 

If a house or dwelling is 10 or more years old, we can proceed to its regularization in  a fast, simple and economical way. 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED? 

TO REGULARIZE A HOUSE OR TO REGULARIZE AN EXTENSION OF A HOUSE 

The procedure of DECLARATION OF ANTIQUE NEW BUILDING must be carried out by  NOTARIAL PUBLIC DEED, that is to say, a notary will be in charge of issuing the  declaration to later request its inscription in the Registry. For this purpose, the Notary must  have the following documentation relating to the property: 

1.- TECHNICAL CERTIFICATE OF AGE OF BUILDING 

2.- NOT TO HAVE OPEN URBAN INFRACTION FILES. 

3.- NOT TO BE LOCATED IN URBAN PROTECTED LAND. 

A building must comply with a series of requirements, including the fact that the urban  development crime is time-barred in order for the Public Administration not to act against it.  In that case, it could be registered in the Land Registry and thus be regularized. 

 

WHAT STEPS TO FOLLOW? 

TO REGULARIZE A HOUSE OR REGULARIZE A HOME EXTENSION 

Before REGULATING any action carried out without a license, we recommend that you seek  the advice of a competent technician in the matter. The regularization of a house is a simple  process in almost all cases, but it is not always possible. 

1 PREVIOUS: TECHNICAL ADVICE

Either by means of a confidence technician or from your City Hall, you will have to resolve some previous questions to know if and how the regularization is feasible. 

2 DRAFTING: TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION 

In order to apply for the regularization of your house or extension you will need a series of technical documents. 

3 NOTARY: DECLARATION OF NEW CONSTRUCTION 

A notary will be in charge of issuing the declaration through a public deed to subsequently request its registration in the Registry. 

4 LAST STEP: REGISTRATION IN THE LAND REGISTRY 

This is the last step. The Registry will register the property as stated in the notarial deed. 

 

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES? 

TO REGULARIZE A HOUSE OR TO REGULARIZE A HOUSE EXTENSION 

The most obvious advantage of regularizing a property is a considerable increase in value for the regularized property. 

This is accompanied by another series of benefits such as being able to mortgage the entire property for sale, leave a property in inheritance without any problems... 

REVALUE YOUR PROPERTY 

The appraisal will reflect the full value of the property. Sometimes it can be as much as double the value of the property or even more. 

DEED YOUR HOME 

Obtaining equity security and the possibility of requesting a mortgage loan using your home as collateral. 

SELL YOUR HOME

It will be easier to sell your property. Obtaining the 1st occupancy you give the guarantee for third parties who acquire your property. 

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? 

REGULARIZE A HOUSE OR REGULARIZE A HOME EXTENSION 

The budget to regularize a house will depend on the surface area and whether it is our  primary residence or a second home. 

The price to regularize a house or extension of a house can be broken down into  concepts and their cost per m2

1. Technical Regularization Report. The cost is about 300€. 

2. Certificate of Georeferential Coordinates: The cost is about 500€ (this is an  approximate cost as it will depend on the characteristics of the plot and  building). 

3. Deed of Declaration of New Construction: It is around 350-400€. 4. Registration of Deed of Declaration of New Construction: Around 300€- 350€ plus taxes**. 

The taxes are calculated on the value of the construction. They are "0.15% X Value"  if it is for habitual residence and "1.5% X Value" if it is for NON habitual residence.  VAT would have to be added except for Taxes and Fees.
