Certificates of first or second occupation
The second occupation license or certificate is an administrative process that aims to demonstrate that a particular house can be inhabited having first being inspected for the purpose of health, soundness or hygiene and carried out for second hand homes.
The certificate of occupancy or certificate of first occupation for new build verifies the conformity of the building with the construction project, which ensures the occupation and use of the house, enabling the owner to contract electricity, water, gas, telephone and other essential services. We must bear in mind that in order to make the occupation of our home possible, it must meet optimal conditions of habitability, safety, soundness and safety. All of these must be duly certified by a registered architect or engineer.
Change of use
It is very common to transform a disused commercial premises into a comfortable family home for rent or sale, giving out this property assuming the cost of reform. This change of use is managed through the creation of a technical project which show how the change from commercial to residential use is carried out.
In Pacheco & Asociados we take care of all the bureaucratic procedure to register the premises as a home in the Property Registry.
After this process, with our reform project you can contact different contractors to complete the work if needed.
