B | Latent defects and building faults: | ADMIBURGOS

The responsibility of the different agents involved in the building process regarding the apparition of building defects or faults in buildings or properties is currently submitted to a double legal system. On one hand, it is applicable the Law 38/1999, 5th November, of the Building Development, which is to be applied for building new properties and for works in existing buildings which projects need the corresponding building permission from the commencement of said Law onwards, that is, from 6th May 2000.

On the other hand, with respect to the buildings which permission was requested before the commencement of the aforementioned Law, and to those buildings not included in its scope of application, the responsibility for the building is ruled by Art. 1.591 of the Civil Code.

The responsibility for building faults is ruled by the Law of Building Development of 5th November 1999 if the building permission was requested after the 6th of May 2000 (inclusively), and it is ruled by Art. 1.591 of the Civil Code if the permission was requested before the 6th of May 2000.

Commencing the study of the responsibility in building with Art. 1.591 of the Civil Code, to study subsequently the regulations stated in the Law of Building Development, it is convenient to transcribe the content of Art. 1.591 of the Civil Code, which is reflected in the chapter about works and services leasing, in order to proceed to study it over this Didactic Unit:

"The contractor of a building which was damaged with building defects or faults will be responsable for liquidated damages if such damage took place within 10 years after the building completion; to the same extent and for the same period, the the architect who directed the works will be responsible for it, if the damage is caused by a faulty site or management. If it was caused by the contractor's default to adhere to the contractual conditions, the compensation period will be 15 years."
