Legalization and Occupation in Andalusia (II)

The Occupation of Legalized Buildings in Andalusia (II)

Occupation License for Expired Buildings that do not Require Adaptation Works


The Urban Discipline Regulations in Andalusia (RDUA) provide the documentation needed for obtaining an Occupation or Utilization License for buildings with expired deadline for the adoption of measures to protect the urban legality. If the building with expired deadline does not require the performance of any building works for the adaptation to the intended use, the documentation required for obtaining the Occupation or Utilization License depends on whether the works comply or not with the urban planning regulations.

Prescribed Building Works that Comply with the Urban Planning

If the building works conform to the urban regulations, the document needed for obtaining the Occupation or Utilization License shall be a Descriptive and Graphic Certificate stating:
  • the date of completion of the works
  • review about the condition of the building and of its installations
  • accreditation about the fitness of the property for the contemplated purpose
  • cadastral and registry identification (if applicable)
  • current urban conditions
  • documentation attesting the correct operation of the installations
  • where applicable, certification by the supplier companies about the feasibility of the access to all building installations, without the need of new works.

In this case, the granting of the Occupation or Utilization License will involve a simultaneous recognition of legalization by prescription.

Prescribed Building Works that do not Comply with the Urban Planning

If the works do not conform to the urban planning regulations (in any case, the use must be in accordance with the urban planning) the documentation needed for obtaining the Occupation or Utilization License shall be:
  • statement of the Situation of Assimilated to Outside Planning (SAFO)
  • review about the condition of the building
  • description of the operation of the installations, including certification by the supplier companies.

In this case, the granting of the Occupation or Utilization License will involve the simultaneous recognition of the declaration of SAFO.
