They ask that the new Urban Law does not leave out the owners of irregular houses that fulfilled the formalities

The president of Asociación Salvemos Nuestras Casas Axarquía (SOHA), Philip Smalley, accompanied by his spokespersons of the collective Fernando Montero and Mario Blancke, have fooled the Secretary General of Infrastructure, Mobility and Territorial Planning, Andrés Gutiérrez Istria, and the general director of Planning of the Territory of the Board, José María Morente del Monte, a decalogue of proposals for the new government of the Board to study its inclusion in the Decree that is being drafted, or as the case may be, in the new Andalusian Urban Development Law, also in draft phase.

SOHA, which brings together irregular homeowners built with a municipal license on undeveloped land, mostly foreign residents, has asked that the regulations distinguish between owners who did not have a license and owners who complied with all municipal requirements and who therefore, they have the building and first occupation licenses. In this sense they have demanded that the validity of these titles be maintained through the figure of Legal Out of Ordination.

"We have also transferred the case of owners under the same conditions but with their licenses declared null by a judicial procedure," said SOHA President Philip Smalley, for whom the Provincial Court of Malaga has opened the possibility of the regularization of these homes through the figure of the Assimilated Out of Ordination. "It would be, in any case, the lesser evil for those affected," according to Smalley.

The meeting held yesterday with the Secretary General of Infrastructure, Mobility and Planning and the General Director of Territorial Planning has served above all, according to Samlley, as a first approach of the association with the new heads of the Board on the subject. The collective claims its status as a valid interlocutor with the Administration, since it represents many affected in the Axarquía, between Andalusians and foreign residents.
