The TSJ of the Valencian Community supports the freedom of building heights in the Salinas de Calpe.

A few weeks ago Imont Legal Services had the opportunity to prepare a real estate legal advisory report on behalf of a client interested in the acquisition of an attic in the Salinas de Calpe area.

While drafting the report, the firm encountered an issue which could potentially (be a legal setback to the sale) threaten the legal integrity of the sale. The registry information of the property showed an annotation of a judicial proceeding filed by the Civic Association of Marina Alta-Calpe against a decision approved by the Calpe City Hall in 2016, by which it modified the morphologic ordinance in order to avoid the construction of new buildings blocking sea views and by which it authorized the construction of said buildings perpendicular to the coast simultaneously removing any height restrictions.

After conducting several investigations and visits to the Calpe City Hall, the lawyers at Imont Legal Services reached the conclusion that said proceeding didn´t have any merits to prosper and thus the acquisition of the property was legally safe for our client. Said decision has been corroborated a few days ago by the Superior Justice Court of the Comunidad Valenciana, which has dictated a sentencing validating the approved changes in 2016, endorsing this way the right of heights in the Salinas de Calpe area.

This is a very good news for the real estate market as well as for Imont Legal Services and for those people interested in one of the several magnificent buildings in the Salinas de Calpe area but were concerned by the legal uncertainty caused by the filed proceeding.

This Superior Justice Court of the Comunidad Valenciana sentencing has been very anticipated by the real estate market, which reaffirms and consolidates their bet for the Costa Blanca and North Alicante area. Calpe is a reference and a much desired municipality by our international clients, which can relax and count with our expert advisory and the total confidence from the lawyers at Imont Legal Services.
