Increase in DAFO Charges – Cómpeta Town Hall

We want to alert anyone currently marketing or planning to market their property in the Cómpeta countryside to the fact that the Town Hall have drastically increased their charges for the DAFO certificate.  We only found out by pure chance.

Having already paid over €1,000 for our property to be measured and for the DAFO application to be submitted to the Town Hall we were expecting to pay €980 for the certificate.

We have since found out that we will now have to pay €3,300!.

Just a slight increase….!

Services Available – Solution for Electricity supply problem

Many times, when there is a storm (thunder/lightning), the supply will often trip out, it is always the main switch (RCD/RCB) “Interruptor diferencial in Spain” in the consumer unit that trips.  When you are away, you need a continuous service in fridge, alarm, swimming pool, that requires a continuous electricity supply.
In this case, it is possible to install a Self-reclosing RCCB to ensure service continuity.
