Certificate of Habitability

What is the certificate of occupancy?

The certificate is a necessary document for the transfer of a property offered for sale, rental or transfer of use, both in the first transfer and in subsequent transfers (except in the cases of exemption provided for in the current regulations).

It is also necessary to register water, electricity, gas and telecommunications services, among others.

How is the card made?

An Architect or Technical Architect carries out an inspection of the dwelling, which accredits compliance with the habitability requirements established in Decree 141/2012, of October 30, which regulates the minimum habitability conditions of dwellings and the habitability certificate; and subsequent processing at the Direcció General d’Habitatge de la Generalitat de Catalunya.
