Building on Your Plot

A beautiful villa exactly where you want it and how you want it.

"Plot and build" means no compromise because the villa is designed to your exact requirements. The property will also be constructed using the latest materials with modern fittings, insulation, windows, appliances, connections and so on.

Design can still be traditional Canarian villa or finca style, or maybe ultra-modern minimalist design so more light can flood the living areas. The layout and room distribution can also be created from scratch, as can the pool and garden landscaping. An office, gym, cinema, studio, apartment or playroom can also be incorporated. Maybe you would like an elevator installed.

And most importantly, the house can be oriented so that the sun, the shade and the view are all properly considered.

What land can I build on?

Spanish legislation classifies land as one of three types: suelo urbano, suelo urbanizable, and suelo rústico. This classification is listed in the Planes Generales de Ordenación Urbanística de cada ciudad. The possibilities of construction on each is very different.

Suelo Urbano Land of this type has connections to the public networks of potable water, sewage, electricity, etc. The conditions regarding what type of construction can be done on this type of land depends on the regulations for each sector of the city.

Suelo Urbanizable This land has the possibility of being reclassified as suelo urbano. For that to happen, a Plan Parcial must first be approved, followed by the approval and execution of a Proyecto de Urbanización.

Suelo Rústico Land of this type may not be reclassified as suelo urbano. Construction is very restricted; normally only buildings relating to agriculture and livestock are permitted. A subclass called Suelo Especialmente Protegido, such as Natural Parks, has even more restrictive conditions.

Once you have decided on a plot we will introduce you to two qualified professionals; the lawyer and the architect. The lawyer will check all legal aspects of the land to ensure that the plot is safe to buy with ‘urbano’ building permission. The architect will sit down with you and discuss your requirements and wish-list. The architect can also recommend the best constructors and trade specialists. Build quotes are then prepared and, once approved, a construction contract is drawn up and payment terms are agreed. Once you approve the villa design, the architect will submit the plans to the local town hall and a building license is then granted.

Timescale will depend on the size of the build but, on average, the whole process should take about 12 months, sometimes less.
