Progress on Puerto housing dispute
Puerto de la Cruz council has approved the draft of deeds of the houses of San Valentín and Santiago Apóstol.
This will allow their transfer from public ownership to private and follows the granting of the energy efficiency certificate which was needed to finalise the process.
Councillor for heritage, Sandra Rodríguez González said she was very pleased with the progress achieved following many years of work on the project.
“Many legal obstacles had to be overcome,” she said.
The council anticipates that the deeds of ownership will be available to sign during this summer.
Some people have been waiting 30 years to put in a legitimate claim for the houses, either as their owners or heirs.
