The question is: Which of these actions need a building permit and which do not? Is it mandatory to apply for this permit? Where should we process it? What happens if we do a work at home without a license? What kind of fines do we face? Can the Community of Owners denounce us?

The building permits are the administrative tools that our legislation observes to guarantee that any intervention in a building complies with the Technical Building Code. In this way, when we do a work at home, we ensure that certain standards are maintained that affect, fundamentally, the quality of the materials and our safety and integrity.

In all cases, having a license from the City Council allows us to make the appropriate modifications to our home, avoiding noise complaints and unauthorized clearing of materials at the foot of the building. In addition, when we request one of these permits, we also leave a record before the Community of Owners of the work, its duration and possible inconvenience as a rule of “courtesy” with our neighbors.
