Thanks un anticipation

Good afternoon

Certainly, you have done what you had to do.  The local authorities are the responsible of enforcing the laws regardless diturbing activities, such us noise.

However, since the authorities did nothing, you got two options (any or both)

–  On one hand, submitt again a complaint in the Town Hall, taking a stamped copy with you for furthers actions.

– On the other hand, enquire to the President or Administrator to take benefit of the art. 7 of the Horizontal Propiertors Law by asking the owner and/or resident for stopping with the barkling of the dog.

If the owner ignores the complaint, you should require an extraordinary meeting so the legal demand is initiated according to the second item of the art. Mentioned above.  The Courts can produce a sentence obliging the owner to stop the issue and it could also mean the prohibition of the use of the property.

The owner or occupant is not allowed to run activities which are listed as prohibited in the statutes, or which are detrimental for the plot, or which are in breach of the related laws.


The President of the community will notify to the owner warning about the relevant legal actions if the behaviour does not change.


If the deliquent continues, the President authorized by the  owners after the relevant meeting, will be entitled to initiate cesasion procedure that will be complemented with an ordinary judgment
