The owner of the home, building, or business premises will be responsible for obtaining and paying for the certificate, which they will need in order to sell or rent their home. In addition to the certificate, each home will also receive a series of recommendations to improve the energy performance of the home and enable it to go up at least one level in the energy efficiency scale. The certificate is valid for 10 years and will only need renewing if modifications or alterations are made to the property within this time.
The penalties for non-compliance with the new energy certification law were published, revealing that fines of between 300 and 6,000 Euros will be levied on owners who fail to comply. The fines will be split into three levels dependent upon the severity of the infraction:
Minor offences: 300-600 Euros
Serious offences: 601-1,000 Euros
Very serious offences: 1,001-6,000 Euros
LETS HOPE THEY FINE THE BUILDERS FOR NOT COMPLYING
We are going to make an enquiry to the European Union regarding this issue.
1, The Spanish Builders did NOT comply with any Energy Saving on past builds.
(Although they NOW have to install Solar heaters on the roofs which make the aesthetic outlook of the new build look ridiculous).
2, There is NO cavity insulation? (Most of the cavities are in-filled with builders rubbish and debris).
3, Most of us have double glazing anyway
4, There is NO roof insulation what so ever?
Who, What, & how are they going to administrate this? Undercover secret police??
Will there be adverts asking residents to squeal on their neighbours if they rent their homes out. Maybe they rent to family and friends.
This is another Pirate Tax that the Spanish government require to fill the coffers.
