Correction of undeclared sqm - deadline for submission

The online platform opened on February 27th, where owners of properties -connected to electricity supply or not, legal or regulated- can correct their properties’ sqm, if the surface shown on the electricity bill is lower than the actual one shown in E9, the property deeds, the building permit or the legalization declaration.
The correction applies to all your properties and, more precisely, to all residential areas, or to auxiliary spaces that have been converted to residential areas, in case of horizontal properties, to the sqm of these spaces (apartments, shops, storage rooms, closed parking spaces) excluding the common spaces, in case of properties without horizontal division the total sqm including common areas.

The purpose of this declaration is to avoid retroactive charges and municipal fees for the period 2010-2019. By submitting the correction declaration you avoid any certified municipal charges and fees. However, amounts which have been already confirmed following a municipal control or a request for a certificate for property transfer are not written off. Amounts already paid to municipalities are not refundable. The new municipal fees and charges following the corrections are effective retroactively from January 1, 2020 and will be reflected in the electricity bills to be issued in September.

The deadline for submission of the correction statement is the 31st of March 2020.

Gradually all public services where your property information is registered will be fully interconnected (tax office, municipality, electricity organizations, land registry, town planning etc.), so it is highly important to consult all property documents (E9, land registry sheet, electricity bill, building permit, legalization) when completing the correction declaration so that all your registered property data is identical. Any future transfer of your property (sale, parental donation, etc.) will require a municipal certificate, so it is crucial that the s.m. of this property is the same as those kept in the municipal archives so that you do not incur retroactive municipal fees.

If you can’t use the on line application, you can consult your municipality providing the documents certifying the changes to be declared. You can also consult your engineer, accountant, or lawyer for questions about the procedure to avoid mistakes.
