When we want to carry out a reform or work in our house or business premises, we often ask ourselves if such reforms require the corresponding building licence or not in order to be carried out.
Let’s answer that question once and for all: Yes, you always need to have the corresponding license or permit, no matter how small the modification is. However, it is important to distinguish between major and minor work licenses. In order to distinguish between these two, we must make use of the local building regulations, which usually vary depending on the municipality.
In spite of the differences that can exist, generally it is considered as a major work all those projects that require a high degree of complexity of construction, such as the addition of a floor to our house, extension of the surface, any intervention that modifies the structural set, etc…
On the other hand, when we talk about minor works, we understand that they are those that are characterized by their simplicity, both economic and formal (e.g. painting common elements such as doorways or stairs, changing tiles, repairing the facade, etc…)
