The unit is situated in the centre of more than one thousand homes and is in easy reach of the AP7 motorway, the Torrevieja hospital, Los Balcones, Los Altos, Villamartin, La Florida, Playa Flamenca and only five minutes’ drive from the very popular Zenia Boulevard. The surrounding area has a registered resident population of over 35,000 people and the holiday population reaches 250,000 people during the summer months. Dream Hills is situated on a hill and all the terraces in this centre are south facing. The units have planning permission (not opening licenses) to be used as bars, coffee shops, restaurants, car hire, office, or indeed any commercial (not industrial) business. All new tenants are required by the local town hall to apply for new opening licenses or to transfer existing opening licenses to their own names.
In order to open and run a new business in Spain it is OBLIGATORY to have an opening licence in your (or your company) name. With most municipalities in Spain (including Torrevieja), it is not permitted to open a business without having an opening licence in place, however, because of the backlog in Orihuela Costa it is possible to open once renovation work has been completed and an opening licence application has been made to the town hall, so if you want to open a shop or café-bar and you have done all this you could open the next day.
It then takes at least one month for the town hall inspectors to inspect that all work has been completed according to regulations and the plans submitted. Other types of businesses/uses must comply with a whole range of varying regulations, a café-bar is totally different to a pub, an engineer is essential.
Before signing any contract or paying any deposit it is highly advisable that you employ the services of a qualified engineer or architect. For a small fee of 150€, an engineer will check that the property or properties you are interested in, are fit for purpose. The engineer will advise you what work and paperwork you will need, to obtain an opening licence. If all that is needed to obtain an opening licence (rarely) is to change the name, then the cost will be 350€. Normally an electrical project and opening licence project will cost about 1,600€ however most engineers will deduct the original 150€ from this price. Payments are subject to 21% IVA (reclaimable).
We are happy to give you the contact details of an English speaking, well experienced engineer who has specialised in dealing with the town halls in this area (Orihuela Costa, Torrevieja, Torre and Pilar del la Horadada).
