I am going through my house-buying contract and in the bit where it says about what I think is the habitation licence it says 'until' and then a date in about 10 years. I will of course ask my lawyer about this but am so worried I thought I would see if anyone knows- are habitation licences only for a set period of time? I assumed they were a permanent thing?

Oops cancel that! (I don’t know how to delete a post sorry) it turns out the thing that gets renewed in 10 years is the energy certificate. The joys of google translate.

@aspidistra you only need to renew the energy certificate if you plan to sell or rent your house.

The certificate is just another way for people to spend money, the state charge you a fee and you have to pay the professional that does it, but most times it brings no value, it just another requirement to be met.
