I live on an urbanisation in San Fulgencio on the Costa Blanca and I am facing disconnection of water supply. This is a builders' supply. I have been requested to pay €1000 in respect of both water and electricity charges.
I am told that this disconnection is not legal because I have not been issued with a Certificate of Habitation, thus the builder should supply both electricity and water free of charge until the Habitation Certificate has been issued.
Does anyone know whether, indeed, this is correct? I am on mains electricity with Iberdrola. This permanent supply was connected without a Habitation Certificate approximately 2 years ago. Apparently Iberdrola do not insist on the issue of a Habitation Certificate and they will connect without. This is true in my part of the world! I am taking steps at the moment to denounce the builder should he carry his threat to disconnect my water supply. Can anyone advise, please, on this.
I have tried to seek legal advice on this, but it seems to be a "murky" area and nothing positive is forthcoming.
I would welcome any comments, please.
