Algarve Surveyors - Legalisation of properties and swimming pools in the Algarve

Legalisation of propeties

Illegal structures are one of the main causes of collapses in property deals. Before the formal transfer of title deeds, it is in the interest of the buyer and the vendor to ensure that the property is fully legal. We can help you with this area.

The legalisation process can take months, in some cases years, depending on the complexity of the individual case.

Legalisation of swimming pools

Swimming pools must be licenced. If you don’t have a licence for your pool, either as part of the original project, or as its own project, we can help you with the legalisation process.

If you are buying a property with a swimming pool we can help you to establish whether the pool is licenced, potentially avoiding unnecessary future expenses.
