The Habitation Certificate (Cedula de Habitabilidad) is an essential document when buying or selling a Spanish property, this document must be present prior to a sale. 

The Habitation Certificate is a certificate issued by the local town hall once a property has been completed. The certificate means that the property has been built correctly and follows the building and safety requirements. 

For a potential buyer it is essential to always ensure the property has this document before reserving, without the habitation certificate it is impossible to arrange a mortgage as any bank will insist on a copy of this certificate, also utility companies such as water & electric board will also insist on having a copy of this document before connecting or setting up a new contract for owners. 

It is extremely important for a seller to have the habitation certificate in place before putting their property on the market as without this vital document your property is not legally ready for sale. Having this document in your possession prior to a sale ensures a quick and uncomplicated selling process. Any buyer will be comforted knowing that they are looking at a fully legal property.
