Faced with the precarious construction situation of many buildings in the center of Barcelona, the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona launched a plan in May that establishes coercive mechanisms with fines of up to 90% of the cost of rehabilitation. The city council will act in the alternative in case the owner does not bear the costs of rehabilitation and this act will constitute a registry charge.
