The Plenary Session of the Civil and Criminal Chamber of the High Court of Catalonia has rejected an appeal issued by the neighbors of an owner’s community of a building where there is a touristic flat. The Court establishes that it is not possible to conclude that the existence of touristic flats represents an activity contrary to the normal coexistence in a community. In this regard, it is necessary to proof that the use of the flat is anomalous and antisocial, as a result of some activities that deserve to be considered to be antisocial. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, this analysis must be done case by case.

The civil code of Catalonia adds two new legal figures: temporary and shared ownership, to promote access to housing._

With the aim of seeking methods that meet the current needs of access to housing, on July 29, the Law 19 / 2015 was approved, addressed mainly to real estate but also includes the acquisition of those movable properties which may be registered.

Temporary ownership: the temporary property right grants its holder -known as the temporary owner- a domain of a property -usually real estate- for a certain and determined time, which can be between 6 and 99 years and established by contract. Once that period has ended, it returns to the original owner or its heirs. 

While the temporary owner’s rights lasts, the ordinary owner, that is, the person who sold him the property, cannot carry out any act that can interfere in the exercise of the properties of the temporal owner.

Shared ownership: The buyer (material owner) acquires an initial percentage and will progressively acquire the remaining percentage to the seller (formal owner). 

According to this way of acquiring the property, the material owner has almost all rights of possession of the property acquired, in exchange for the payment of a sum of money to the formal owner.

The parties agree the initial percentage that will be acquired, while the remaining percentage shall be in the absence of agreement, at least 10% of the total.

May 24, 2015 is the deadline to claim against Bankia SA for the return of the money invested on ordinary shares._

The Courts are decreeing the nullity of the purchasing subscription of Bankia SA shares forcing the bank to pay back these values​, yields obtained, and legal interests and costs, based on the retail investors error-vice in the provision of their consent.

 Although there is discussion about it, one theory that Courts argue is that the the period to claim in this case expires after three years since the investor would have known the falseness of BANKIA’s accounts. This period has been set on May 24, 2012, when the reformulation of BANKIA’s accounts took place, after the departure of Mr. Rodrigo Rato from the board of directors, becoming clear to the public opinion the existence of losses of almost three billion euros and the falling value of share prices.

That is why, if you plan to claim, we recommend that the action is brought before May 24, 2015.
