The installation of an elevator is an obligation

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

The installation of an elevator is an obligation

According to a publication by, the installation of an elevator in buildings that do not have one is one of the most common debates in neighborhood councils. Rather, it was one of the most common debates. As of December 4, 2017, the installation of elevators in residential buildings will become mandatory. With this measure, contained in Royal Decree 1/2013, of November 29, it is intended to achieve universal accessibility in neighboring communities.

According to the latest data from the INE, in Spain there are 10.7 million homes in residential buildings with three or more floors and 4 million do not have an elevator. This means that there are millions of elderly and disabled people who encounter architectural barriers in their own homes.

Undoubtedly, this is a problem that must be eradicated in order to achieve universal accessibility and social inclusion for all tenants. Therefore, the decision to install an elevator no longer depends on the vote of the majority of the neighbors. It is the law that says that it is an obligation.

What the horizontal property law says

As stated in Article 10.1.b of the Horizontal Property Law (LPH): “They shall be mandatory and shall not require prior agreement of the Board of Owners, whether or not they imply modification of the Constitutive Title or of the Statutes, requested at the request of the owners, the following actions: B / The works and actions that may be necessary to guarantee reasonable adjustments in terms of universal accessibility and, in any case, those required at the request of the owners in whose home or premises they live, work or provide volunteer services, people with disabilities, or those over seventy years of age, in order to assure an adequate use of common elements for their needs, as well as the installation of ramps, elevators or other mechanical and electronic devices that favor orientation or their communication with the outside ”.

In summary, the installation of an elevator or any other mechanism that facilitates accessibility in residential buildings becomes mandatory. It is no longer necessary to vote on this decision at the owners' meeting. All that is required is the request of an owner over the age of 70 or any person residing in the same dwelling or taking care of it.

Now, that the installation of the elevator is not voted on by the neighborhood council does not mean that it does not provoke a debate in the building. On the one hand, there are the neighbors who accept without conditions and on the other, those who refuse the installation due to the high cost involved.

Who pays for the elevator installation?

Taking into account that the adaptation of the buildings is mandatory, there are public aids to facilitate financing for neighboring communities. However, in any case, it will be the owners who will have to bear the costs of installation and maintenance.

According to the LPH, the amount that each owner will have to face (after discounting the subsidies) must not exceed the equivalent of twelve monthly payments of the usual community fees.

What if the installation exceeds twelve monthly installments?

In the event that the cost of the elevator installation, once the public aid has been discounted, exceeds twelve monthly installments, it must be exposed at the neighborhood meeting and a vote must be taken. To be approved, you need to obtain a simple majority.

If the majority of the votes are against, the compulsory nature of the installation will not be eliminated. If the neighbors refuse, but the owner who has requested it assumes the remaining amount, the installation will take place. In this case, the rest of the neighbors must assume their part, which will not exceed in any case the equivalent of 12 monthly payments.

What if there is no space to install an elevator in the neighborhood community?

The vast majority of buildings that do not have an elevator are because they are old and at the time the option of installing it was not considered. In these cases, it is more than likely that they do not have enough space to do it. There are different alternatives to solve space problems and thus be able to comply with universal accessibility requirements:

Inner courtyard: it is the easiest solution because in any case this space belongs to the neighborhood community.

Redistribution of the stairs: in this case it would be necessary to reduce the size of the stairs in order to make room for the elevator. It is not always possible since ladders are necessary as an escape route in case of fire and must meet certain requirements.

Expropriation of a small part of the houses or commercial premises. Without a doubt this is one of the most problematic alternatives.

Installation on the exterior façade: in case it is not possible to install it inside the building, it will be necessary to request a permit from the city council to be able to do it on the façade.

Flamenco On Fire 2019

Flamenco seals its idyll with the north with the sixth edition of Flamenco On Fire. The Festival, which stands as one of the essential events of the year, will be held from August 20 to 25 in the city of Pamplona, extolling the Flemish roots of the Navarrese land in honor of Maestro Sabicas.

The Festival presents this year a varied grill of activities that will take place over 6 intense days that will establish the headquarters of flamenco in the north in Pamplona, establishing in its streets and stages the meeting point between great artists, experts in gender and hobby.

This new edition, Flamenco On Fire will take place around ‘Generations, myths and promises’. Through this theme, different concerts will be sketched in transgressive formats, building a transversal cycle that will dot most of the scheduled activities.

With an exquisite and meticulous offer of content, the Festival will offer, alongside the bulk of shows hosted in the Baluarte Main Auditorium and the already legendary cante, dance and guitar recitals of the 'Night Cycle' at the Hotel 3 Reyes, a wide cultural proposal free and open air with 'Flamenco en los Balcones', 'Jam Flamenca' and 'Generaciones, myths and promises'. Likewise, didactic and integrative activities will be carried out with the 'VI Conference on Flamenco Art in Pamplona'. And as every year, the best hoteliers in the city will offer an exquisite gastronomic selection with the ‘El Pincho de Sabicas’ route.
