Inspection detected unreported enlargements or additions to more than 4,000 homes in Mijas , resulting in higher rateable values

Mijas town hall’s Foreigner’s Department has issued an advisory regarding IBI property tax increases for homeowners whose cadastral (or rateable) value was adjusted during a recent revision.

During 2013 and 2014 the Spanish Tax Office’s Cadastral Department carried out a revision of all the properties in town, with the aid of satellite camera images, and updated the listings of “more than 4,000 properties that had undergone enlargement building works of over 15 square metres – most of which were swimming pools, terraces and garages – that had not been reported to the Cadastral Department,” said the Foreigners’ Department.

As in other towns where the revisions were carried out, the Cadastral Department sent out letters informing the affected homeowners that they needed to pay 60 euros for this updating of their listing.
