The housing office in Pilar de la Horadada has been reopened for the first time since 2011. The current council has restored this service, which was opened in 2007, to offer advice and help residents in various matters.
Mayor Ignacio Ramos said the office’s opening will ensure that there will be “nobody in the street and homeless in Pilar, because this is a fundamental and basic service”. He noted users will have to be registered residents on the padrón “because together we are more and the more of us there are enables us at the Town Hall to provide more and better services”.
The housing office will give advice about mortgages mediate with banks to avoid court action and restructure debts, process loan and subsidy applications, advise and mediate with rental contracts, give information on aid and manage social housing.
The new office is on Calle Ramón y Cajal in the old Town Hall building and opens from 9am to 2pm. It is attended by a lawyer for general advice, a social worker to process loans and aid for families struggling to pay bills or rent; and on Wednesdays there will be a lawyer specialised in housing, for which an appointment will be required.
There will also be an administrator in charge of applications for social housing and private individuals who want to rent out their home.
