Hello everybody, 

We have a house in Montemar and the roof is leaking in some places. We like to put new tiles, new bitumen and a layer of insulation (8cm) for the cold. 

The city hall (OAC) saw the quotation and said we have to pay 5% on the total amount of the works. It seems so expensive as you pay the VAT 21% too .... and 70€per container (and also + 5% and + 21%).

I feel something is wrong. Who has experience with a similar situation ? 

Many thanks in advance. 

Paul

Hi Paul,

Is the 5% charge for the "Licencia de Obra Mayor" (Major Works Licence)?  I would expect the work you've described to be covered by a Minor Works Licence ("Obra Menor"), as you're essentially repairing an existing structure.  Minor Works Licences are much cheaper - we had a new 5m x 3m terrace laid in our garden in 2018 and the Obra Menor cost €33.  It may be worth double-checking this with your Town Hall.

Kind regards, 

Kim

I think it depends on the Ajuntamiento, Kim. Five years ago, to replace our kitchen and bathroom, no walls knocked down, effectively internal facelift, the Ajuntamiento saw fit to charge us 750 Eu, which roughly worked out at over 30 Eu per sq mt.

Hi Stephanie,

Yes, the individual Town Halls set their own fees, but in your case, was that charge for a Minor or Major Works licence?  My point was that, if the OP is referring to a licence fee, they should double-check which licence they're being charged for.

Kind regards,

Kim
