Community of Owners or "Comunidad de Propietarios" Perhaps one of the most asked questions by homeowners expats in Spain. Circumstances change along our life and therefore our needs.

Following the second part of this article on town planning we will explain the different stages of the main planning laws in Spain and its hierarchical structure. For that purpose I have selected the region of Murcia as an example, but to all purposes it could be applied to any regional community in this country.
