Conny Kadia Reference (contact via www.pureportugal.co.uk)
I thoroughly recommend Conny Kadia as a translator, project manager, organiser and problem-solver.
She brought language skills, local expertise and relationship-building to our rebuild project,
seeing it through from a small ruin in a highly-restricted Natural Park to a lovely house.
Conny's brought in architects and builders to design and rebuild our ruin to twice its original size.
As our confidence in her grew, we entrusted decision-making and payment-settling to her without regrets.
Events where her relationships with the local camera officials and her expertise proved vital were:
1. Obtaining permission for a doubling of the building size, through her ability to maintain friendly relationships
with local officials and initiate detailed discussions about applicable laws, possibilities and designs.
2. Ensuring that a replacement builder was found and contracting to complete the work when the
original builder had to drop out mid-project for entirely separate reasons.
Conny was able to use her local relationships to track down a friendly builder with a similar approach,
re-arrange the planning permissions (builder-dependent in Portugal) and re-start work.
Having lived here for two decades - starting on her own quinta - Conny brings an insider's knowledge
of the local terrain, of different ways of using it, and who to approach to achieve ideal outcomes.
Her personal characteristics - proactivity, patience, and great local language skills -
are all key skills that help her manage projects through to successful completion.
Conny continues to work for us at this high level of trust.
For these reasons, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a facilitator with the above skillset.
I'm also happy to answer any questions by prospective customers.

Licença de Habitação / Licença de Utilização
Since 1995 there exists a new law in
Portugal, that the houses, constructed after 1951 need a habitation licence, if they are living houses, and barns need an utilization licence, if they are registered. This new law serves - in first place - to avoid clandestine construction. But also it can bring difficulties for portuguese and foreign owners, who want to sell their properties. We help to arrange your documents, if you want to sell your house.
LEGALISATION CONCLUDED JANUARY 2013
Glenn & Stephanie Mackey,
Arrangements for Habitation Licence
Time 9 months,
Property has been sold in Nov 2012
Other Recommendation - Glenn Mackey
We came across Conny via Sophie at Pure Portugal as we had a small but fully refurbished house that did not have a habitation license, our request was to clear up the burocratic issues to enable us to sell the house, not having the habitation license meant it was impossible to sell legally. Meeting Conny for the first time was like a breath of fresh air; Conny instantly recognised our issues; laid out a plan and time line and stated she would fix all the issues no other so called help could fix, wow! Conny true to her word proceeded to tackle them in a very efficient manner, updates followed on exactly what she had achieved, if she needed anything we supplied it to maintain momentum, this was very “Un-Portuguese” as things were getting done something we had not experienced in a long time. Conny proceeded to uncover the rights and wrongs with our property and through shear determination and persistence not helped by our architects’’ pursued every local council department and changed to constant no’s into yes’s; and finally true to her word were presented with a habitation license. We would recommend Conny to anyone who has similar issues with property in Portugal as her work ethic is unfaltering and professional with a clear mandate to complete the task requested.
