Homes legal 50 years on


TWENTY-TWO blocks of decades-old social housing apartments in Almeria can finally be legalised.
The 384 homes in Almeria City’s El Tagarete district were built in the 1960s by the now extinct Patronato de Viviendas Primero de Abril.
The homes were rented with the option to buy but tenants have spent years trying to untangle the red tape necessary to obtain deeds to their homes.
Their problems should soon be at an end, revealed the central government’s delegate to Andalucia, Antonio Sanz, during a recent visit to Almeria. A technical inspection of the El Tagarete apartment blocks was carried out last December by a Hacienda (tax office) architect and will be the starting point for compliance with Horizontal Division requirements.
As the Patronato de Viviendas Primero de Abril no longer exists, state lawyers have now confirmed that Hacienda is competent to draw up the purchase contracts of El Tagarete residents who satisfy the legal requirements.
