Changing use of property from commercial to residential

Change Property Use in Spain

No Express Prohibition

In a recent decision the Supreme Court has confirmed that for owners of properties in urbanisations, in certain circumstances the law of horizontal property does permit the change of use from that of a commercial property or ‘local’ to a residential property.

The case came before the Supreme Court in October, having been appealed from the Regional High Court in Almeria. The High court had agreed with the owner of the property that there was no express prohibition in the Community Statutes preventing the change in use and, accordingly, she had the absolute right to convert the property to whatever use she considered appropriate. The High Court thereby overturned the original decision of the court of First Instance which had decided in favour of the community of owners who had objected to the change in use of the property from an office to a residential apartment.

Absence of Legal Barriers

The Supreme Court agreed with the High Court decision and it reiterated earlier decisions whereby, if there is no legal barrier – either statutory or as a result of the Community Statutes – then the change in use of a property from residential to commercial, or vice versa, was entirely a matter for the owner of the property to decide alone.

In the situation where there is no statutory or regulatory prohibition in the type of use envisaged by the owner, but it is expressly prohibited by the Community Statutes, or would involved a change in the structure of the property, then a unanimous agreement by the Community of Owners would be required before being allowed to effect the changes requested.

This situation is likely to become more and more common in Spain as the popularity of shopping centres continues to decimate the high street and render properties originally designated as having a commercial use nonviable as they are no longer able to generate sufficient profit and therefore lie empty for long periods of time. The Court’s decision  may also be relevant to those wishing to use their home as a business.

    Oscar was a great help throughout a difficult process as we bought a house in Barcelona. Despite significant setbacks, he was able to help us find solutions to ensure we finally managed to purchase the property.


    Thank you to Oscar for being incredibly professional and for explaining everything in a straightforward way so we understood a process which was foreign to us. I highly recommend him as a lawyer for anyone looking to buy a property in Spain.

    He went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful for all his help. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Almeria region.

    Juan Ignacio met me in Almeria and with skill and persistence was able to deal with the eviction of a non paying tenant in a very short time, and avoided long and drawn out court processes.(The time factor was important because after gaining access it became apparent that the occupant was rapidly trashing the place.).


    At all times he maintained personal contact with continuous updates during the process.


    A great bloke, great job done and good value.

    Hopefully he can do the same for when I sell the place.

    Rosa is a excellent lawyer and a extremely nice person, very efficient and helped us though the sale of our apartment.


    It all went very smoothly and it was mostly down to Rosa who dealt with anything that came up in a very professional manner. Rosa explained all what was happening in English and always returned our calls with any answers to our questions.


    Her fees are very very reasonable and we felt we got real value for money, we cannot recommend Rosa enough.she is a throughy nice approachable person.We would not hesitate using Rosa again and have recommended her to other people in majorca.

    We found Carmen to be very approachable and professional - she guided us all the way through the process of buying our property always available to answer our many questions either by phone or email.


    The cost of this service was very reasonable and after the sale was complete she then went on to complete our Spanish wills expertly guiding us through the Spanish inheritance laws.


    We would not hesitate to use her services again in the future or to recommend her to friends.

    Very professional and understanding, and also the response rate was very quick. I have had bad experiences with requiring English services in Spain, however, Olga did an excellent job in translating my needs and voicing them legally.

    We found Francisco to be extremely professional and responsive to any questions we had, completely understood our needs and assisted with appropriate solutions to everything we needed.


    In fact he goes the extra mile to ensure everything is correct down to the micro details. Nothing was too much trouble.


    We have never received such good and efficient service from a Lawyer!

    I found Erardo very approachable, he always answered all the questions that we asked of him quickly, giving us all the information we needed.


    He offered a good value for money service & met with us anytime we needed assistance, but did provide most of the information we needed by e-mail (which were all in good quality of our language - English).


    I would use Erardo again to do other legal matters & would not go elsewhere e.g. writing our Spanish wills etc. We would recommend him to others if asked.

    Responsiveness was unrivalled - Jaime is happy to get back to you promptly.


    The service he provided was outstanding and everything is explained from start to finish.


    Jaime has an excellent command of the English language but is so approachable that he is also help you with your Spanish if help is needed.


    He provided value for money whilst at the same time maintaining standards and a friendly and relaxing attitude.

    We bought a house in Ibiza and Cristina showed immediately a high degree of professionalism and deep knowledge of the whole process - from the initial offer to the final completion of the purchase.


    She also dealt on our behalf, with registering us with the utilities companies (Water, Electricity) and other things, for which we were really grateful.


    Cristina is a lovely young lady, always ready to help and very polite and her written and spoken english is so very good that there were never any communication problems. Our queries were dealt with quickly and, when needed, she offered explanations, suggestions and alternatives.


    All in all a very pleasant experience; we told her we wanted to retain her as our solicitor in Ibiza for any future needs and she readily accepted.

    We liked everything about the service we received from Jaime: he was bilingual and he was so much more approachable than lawyers in the UK.


    Went the extra mile for us and helped us immensely...and a lovely guy too!

    Carmen is responsive, able to answer complex questions and even collected the keys on a day when my flight was arriving too late for me to do it.


    I was really impressed with her dedication to doing the job right and in a timely manner. Buying abroad comes with lots of questions and complexities, she guided me through them all with detailed information along the way.


    I have dealt with many solicitors in different countries through the years of buying and selling property and she is amongst the best I have found anywhere.
