Cèdula in Catalan or Cédula in Spanish


Cèdula in Catalan or Cédula in Spanish – note the accent changes direction.

Call a rose by any other name and it will smell as sweet. So they say, but this word cèdula smacks more of the horse muck – commonly used as mulch around it, than the sweet evening scent of budding roses along the garden fence.

The Cèdula refers to the Certificate of Habitation required to sell your property.

The utterance of this word across Catalonia fills the home-owners with dread. Not to mention the other people that it is having a knock on effect with:- lawyers, estate agents, buyers, town halls, notaries and yes, even, the Banks- the whole  of the Catalonian economy grinds to  an abrupt stop in a shamble of shivering shudders! Why? Bless all politicians – because the Socialist party brought in a well intended, but misguided reform bill to protect the  rustic land of Catalonia and to protect all property purchasers, be it rustic, village, urban or city houses.
