10 Permits needed to build a new construction site

  • Title deeds to the land: essential for building your home

At Constructora Viñas, we are aware that building your house is a dream that requires a series of legal procedures and necessary permits. One of the first steps is to sign the land purchase contract before a notary, which must be registered in the corresponding Land Registry.

An architect is essential for the drafting of the building project. This professional will be in charge of submitting it to the corresponding town hall and applying for the necessary licenses. The architectural project will include different phases, from the preliminary study and pre-project to the construction management and the final reception.

  • Applying for the planning permission: complying with municipal regulations

To build your house, it is necessary to apply for the planning permission at the local town hall. This license will be granted if the project complies with the town planning regulations in force. It is important to present the basic project provided by the architect, which will be evaluated to verify compliance with municipal requirements and regulations.

  • Carrying out a geotechnical study: ensuring safe construction

A geotechnical study carried out by a geologist is essential to comply with the technical building code. This study will provide information on the quality of the soil and its characteristics, which will help determine the right type of foundation to avoid structural problems.

  • Application for the building permit: necessary to start construction

Before construction can begin, a building permit must be applied for at the corresponding town hall. This license will be obtained once all fees have been paid and the planning permission has been granted.

  • Signing of the staking out act: checking the feasibility of the project

The act of staking out consists of checking the feasibility of the project on the physical reality of the land. If everything is in order, the report will be signed, which will allow construction of the house to begin.

  • Final building completion certificate: confirmation of construction in accordance with the initial project.

Once the work has been completed, the architect will issue the Final Building Completion Certificate, which certifies that the building has been completed in accordance with the initial project for which the license was obtained. In addition, the building book and the energy efficiency certificate will be provided.

  • License of first occupancy: making the property ready for use

In order to be able to live in the property, the first occupancy license must be applied for at the corresponding town hall. This license will be obtained by presenting the final construction certificate and the building book provided by the architect.

  • Deed of declaration of new construction: official legalization of the construction.

The deed of declaration of new construction is a formal declaration before a notary certifying the completion of the building work. This deed is necessary in order to be able to contract the electricity and water services, as well as to carry out property transfers, such as the sale of the property.

  • Registration of the house: ensuring the legality of the construction

The registration of the property must be carried out before a registrar of the corresponding territory, presenting the final construction certificate, the first occupancy license and the energy efficiency certificate.
