Requirements to get the certificate of occupancy

A certificate of occupancy (cédula de habitabilidad) is essential when selling. This document guarantees that your property meets the minimum requirements for its habitability. The following is a summary of Decree 141/2012 of October 30th, which regulates the minimum living conditions of housing and the certificate of habitability, with the requirements being considered habitable:


Habitability:

  • The house must have a usable area of ​​at least 36 m².

  • It must have at least one living or dining room, a toilet and a kitchen.

  • If the space is a single room, it must allow the subdivision of an 8 m long room.

  • If it is not a single room, the minimum space must be 6 m².

  • The minimum living height between the finished floor and the ceiling must be 2.5 m. However, in the kitchen, bathrooms and circulation areas it can be at least 2.20 m, and in the dining room, living room and bedrooms, exceptionally, 2.30 m can be allowed for the passage of facilities and structural elements.


Sustainability and energy saving:

  • Houses must be designed in such a way that they use the natural conditions of the climate and meet the current energy efficiency criteria.


Subdivision:

  • The subdivision of the rooms is completely free, but must allow the rooms and the access for the toilets to be independent.

  • No room in the house can serve as mandatory access to rooms that are not intended exclusively for the house.

  • The bathrooms must not be used as mandatory access to other rooms.


Accessibility:

  • Every house must at least be accessible and, if there are several floors, practical access to the bathroom, kitchen, common room and bedroom must be guaranteed.

  • The entrance door and the passage to the “basic rooms” must have a minimum passage width of 0.80 m. and a minimum free height of 2 m. The access doors to the rooms of the house that are impractical must have a minimum passage width of 0.70 m. and a minimum free height of 2 m.

  • The corridors connecting the entrance to the house and the various rooms must have a minimum width of one meter and allow a maneuvering circle of 1.20 m.

 


Other aspects that houses must have:

  • Hot and cold water supply, water drainage and electricity.

  • A toilet consisting of at least one wash basin, one toilet and one shower.

  • Kitchen equipment with at least one sink and a cooking device as well as a special mechanical extraction system on the cooking device, with which vapors and vapors can be extracted onto the roof.

  • The complete installation for laundry equipment.

  • An electronic intercom or similar system that facilitates access and enables interactive communication from the entrance to the building with the house.

  • A system for accessing telecommunications services.

  • A facade that is open to the free space outside the building and that provides ventilation and lighting in at least one of the rooms in the common area of ​​the house.

  • Each room must have its own individual storage space.

 


These are just some of the aspects, plus many older homes are subject to earlier regulations with different criteria. For more information, please contact one of our I-VEO consultants.
