Construction

Together with our partner company Contacto, Palminvest offers you a turnkey solution for your new home on La Palma Island.

Within only 6 months your home will be finished, from the first sketch until the turnkey handover. All construction works will be implemented by Contacto in single-handedly. By using a broad network of internal and external experts as gangs, carpenters, plumbers, roofers, painters and electricians, we are able to carry out all required works and tasks. This enables us to put your ideas and visions into effect. If needed, we are able to provide you several innovations and ideas too.

Contract

For the creation of a building contract the house builder and the construction company agree to a building contract. The construction company will be our partner company Contacto. The building contract lists all specifications, and additionally all crafts which maybe are not part of the building project, as outdoor installations, road access, cisterns and/or special requests. Model contract.

Payment

The payment will be effected in 3 steps*: Therefore we usually split the price into 3 equal installments.

  1. First installment: First partial payment has to be made before start of construction. Afterwards we finish the shell construction with the roof.
  2. Second installment: Second payment is required after the house builder has accepted the shell construction.
  3. Third installment: Third payment after final acceptance of the building by the house builder.

*individual agreements are always possible.

Warranty

In Spain, the so-called Aparejador is another important authority besides the architect. He plays a decisive role in the entire construction process. The Aparejador supervises the work progress and confirms afterwards that the building conforms to the architectural plan. This guarantees you the future legal state of your new home.

Warranty claims are defined by Spanish law. For visible defects the warranty lasts for one year, for construction defects affecting habitability three years and for structural defects even ten years.

Maybe you prefer to choose one of our yet existing homes. Then we can modify it the way you want to. With the support of an architect we implement your ideas until the final construction drawing. The cooperation with the architect will be made via Email, for settling details and/or modifications. As a result, you receive an architectural plan for a specific building project which contains all your ideas and visions. Both, the building project (i.e. the architectural plan) and the deed are required for the application for a building license. We care about all formalities, from application to grant. Our experience and our business contacts help us to accelerate and facilitate all paperwork. Hence we receive the grant in the majority of cases already only one month later. As soon as the building license is granted, the construction phase can start. Construction phases...

Completion

After the acceptance of construction work by the architect the building needs to be accepted by the municipality too. Therefore a municipal engineer verifies, if the building fulfills all requirements of the building license. Afterwards you receive a certification of comfort, in Spanish called "Cedula de Habitabilidad". This paper is required to get water-connection, electricity and phone. While the connectors for water and electricity are usually not located at the property, an estimation of these costs will be done already in the building contract. With the "Cedula de Habitabilidad", the necessary connections can be implemented fast and promptly.
