P S (Costa del Sol)
Properly, an owner who wishes to enclose his terrace or enlarge his glass doors must seek the permission of the Community. This permission requires a 60 per cent vote of owners present or represented in favour. Until 2013, this required a unanimous vote. Properly, the owner should also have a building permit from the town hall. Permission from the neighbours is not necessary. If the owner carries out the work without permission, the Community can obtain a court order to restore the original condition of the door or terrace. They should also seek court costs against the offending owner.
