A Licença de Obras is a document issued by a Câmara (local council) once
approval has been granted to either construct a property or restore a
The licence specifies the property which is to be constructed or
restored, the process number it was given from the council, details of
the legal owners of the property and the constructor whom will be
completing the work and the length of validity of the licence.
Once a Licença de Obras has been granted you will need to pay for the
license. Each license is individual and therefore it is difficult to
determine how much a license will cost as it is calculated on the size
of construction, the validity period of the licence and the area in
which the property is located.
