Did you think that you are not part of a community?

Well, do check your Title Deeds. Many people have bought what they thought were independent villas, without the constraints of an Owners Community, only to realize years later, when they tried to legalise the swimming pool they had built, or their extension, that their property was part of a Community… and that in order to legalise their newly refurbished property (a requirement that nowadays is compulsory, especially if the plan is to sell the property)and that they need their consent, and that the Community’s President and Administrator are present at the Notary’s for the signing of the new deeds…

Many house owners are faced with this problem. They need to legalise the refurbishments in order to sell their property, but they cannot do it because they need the consent and the presence of a President and an Administrator of a Community that has never been created…

So what can be done to solve this? Apart from creating an Owners Community from scratch, a process that will take a lot of time and headaches…

Luckily, this situation tends to happen with small Residentials that have not got many owners, which makes things a little bit easier…

At ABC Solicitors we have successfully solved this problem for many clients that were in this situation. We take care of everything. We contact all the owners and gather all necessary documentation on their behalf, and organise whatever procedure is best depending on the community’s specific circumstances. We also accompany you to the Notary’s office and make sure that you end up with the documentation that you will need to legalise whatever works or refurbishments you have had done to your home. The cost of the procedure is shared between all the owners, so for very little money you can have the peace of mind of knowing that you can sell or carry on living on your property without the stress of looming fines or future legal problems.

Do contact us if you think you might be in this situation. We have offices in Torrevieja and in Orihuela Costa, and we can look at your specific situation and offer you a solution that suits you and your neighbours.
