MIJAS Town Hall plans to request that electrical company Endesa delay the removal of provisional meters at illegally built houses.
As a guarantee, the town hall will present the company with the legalization process put in place by the local Urban Development Department. The company is currently sending letters to many meter-owners giving them 30 days to provide documents to prove their homes are legal.
As many are unable to do so, the provisional meters, which are put in place while a property is being built and have a maximum validity of three years unless work is delayed, have already been removed. The mayor, Angel Nozal, plans to prove to Endesa that these homes are currently being legalized and that once they are, they will be able to provide the necessary documents.
