What’s the City Hall regulations related to renovations in Barcelona?2020-04-07T09:57:10+00:00

Barcelona is a city with a lot of history, so it’s understandable that the City Hall has pretty strong regulations regarding the maintenance of some of the oldest buildings. Specially the ones listed in the Heritage department.
Many aspects like age of the building, location, etc. might be decisive on the regulations to attend. Every project is unique, so we need to adapt it to the current regulations. We are very experienced on dealing with these issues, and we also have partners to advise us all the time.

Do I need a works license in order to renovate an apartment in Barcelona?2020-04-07T10:01:02+00:00

It is required to get a license from the City Hall, whenever the distribution of the apartment is going to be modified (either adding or removing walls). In order to get the license, it is also required a project from an architect which proves that all the regulations are compliant.

How much does a work license cost in Barcelona?2020-04-07T09:27:06+00:00

It basically depends on the amount of work required on site. The City Hall charges the 3,35 % of the builder’s quote, taxes and the project from an architect are charged separately.

How long a renovation project could usually take?2020-04-03T14:03:01+00:00

It really depends on how much work required on site, and also the protection level of the property in case of being listed in the Heritage department. It will definetely take longer if the property is listed, since the City Hall might want to revise all the documentation related to the renovation, before being able to start the works.
