In 2011 there were modifications to the regulatory framework of the ID

The “Llei 9/2011, of December 29, of promotion of the economic activity” establishes some substantial modifications in the requirements to obtain the certificate. Below we collect the articles and provisions of this law that affect the regulatory framework of the certificate: Llei 18/2007, del dret a l’habitatge, Decret d’habitabilitat 55/2009, municipal urban regulations, etc.

In the articles we find the following modifications to previous laws:

Article 158

Modification of article 26 of Llei 18/2007
1. It is modifies l’apartat 3 of l’article 26 of Llei 18/2007, which remains redactat de
the following way:
“3. The habitation certificate is the document that the supplying companies have to demand
electricity, water, gas, telecommunications and other services, per
to the contract of services and sub-administrations to l’habitatge. In the cas d’habitatges
official protection for the first occupation, the required document is the
final qualification. ”
2. It is modifies section 5 of article 26 of Llei 18/2007, which remains redactat de
the following way:
“5. The habitation certificate is awarded by the competent department in matters
d’habitatge, it was detrimental that in pugui delegate the regulation in the locals. In
cap cas is not able to grant the certificate of habitation if it is not complex in the conditions
tècniques legally required by the habitability regulations. ”
3. S’afegeix un apartat, on 5 bis, a l’article 26 de la Llei 18/2007, with the text
“5 bis. The authorization of the cèdula d’habitabilitat exclusively implies that
l’habitatge compleix els technical requirements d’habitabilitat of the current norm and not
assumes the legalization of the constructions due to the adequacy of l’us d’habitatge
to the urban legalitat. To protect the drets of the acquirers, quan in the
processing of the request for the cèdula d’habitabilitat is able to state that it
d’un immoble com a habitatge so it does not conform to the urban legalitat, s’ha de
Please note this circumstance in the document of the certificate of the ID, and the
public fedatari ho must pose in connection with the acquirer at the moment of authorizing
the document of transmission. ”
4. It is modifies section 7 of article 26 of Llei 18/2007, which remains redactat de
the following way:
“7. The habitats with economic activities is consider effective habitats
de l’exigència de la cèdula d’habitabilitat. ”

This addition 5 bis to article 26 of law 18/2007 is of the utmost importance since the concession of the certificate is separated from compliance with urban law.

In other words, a home can obtain the certificate regardless of its urban legality? It is not exactly like that, what happens is that the concession of the ID is detached from this condition. And only the habitability certificate is linked to the adequate habitability conditions that the Decree defines. This seems to make sense.

Of course, if an urban illegality has been committed and a home has been created without respecting the urban regulations, or if a home has been created not respecting the building regulations (the CTE, seismic regulations, etc.) this may also be sanctioned. But by other bodies that have jurisdiction in the field in which the offense has occurred.

Article 174

Modification of article 123 of Llei 18/2007
1. It modifies the letter d of l’apartat 1 of l’article 123, which remains redacted from the

In the transitory provisions we find:

Quarta transitory arrangement

Transitional Regime applicable to Llei 18/2007, from the dret a l’habitatge, in relation to
les certificates d’habitabilitat
Mentre I do not approve the regulation that has to deploy the modifications that it establishes
this has been amended in terms of habitation for Llei 18/2007,
of December 28, from the dret to l’habitatge, requests for cèdules d’habitabilitat
for habitats built after 1984 that do not have a certificate
initially granted by the Generalitat have to be processed with the established procedure
for the first occupation card and fulfill the conditions of habitation
effective in the completion date of the construction.

In order to apply this provision, the Departament d’Habitatge established at the time a transitory protocol for the processing of the identity card for homes created after 1984 (in the disseminated protocol it puts built, however, the appropriate concept is that of created), In which a document called a certificate of suitability of the conditions of habitability, solidity and security of the house is requested. This is nothing more than a consolidated certificate that includes: 1. Building and dwelling data: location and owner; 2. Year of construction of the building and creation of the house; 3. Certificate of habitability according to the habitability regulations in force on the date of creation of the home; 4. Certificate of solidity and safety.
