Can I claim damages for the late completion of my property in Costa Blanca, Alicante Torrevieja area?.

It is vital before committing to a purchase of an off-plan property to have a lawyer by your side that will negotiate the terms of the building contract to include every possible scenario in the event of default. We always advise to include a penalty clause in case of delays imputable to the builder. The developer or builder will always try to protect their interests and normally they add many clauses or terms to protect themselves.

It is important to know that when building a property in Alicante or other areas like Torrevieja, right after the dwelling is finished, there are permits, documents and licenses that must be obtained. Normally, those permits that have to be granted by the city council can take up to three months in some cases to be obtained.

This is why a term after the end of the construction must be considered so the builder has enough time to finish all the paperwork so the dwelling is ready to be sold with all the legal documents and guarantees.

Many builders will give you the term when the building is finished but it is crucial to take the term “for paperwork” into consideration.  As it will add some more months to the handover. We will never advise a buyer to sign the deeds and make the final payment to the developer without having all the legal documents in place even though many developers will try to convince the buyer to sign the deeds and make the final payment right after the building is finished.
