We’d like to share an op-ed by our partner Sergio Quesney Swinburn, who is part of our Real Estate practice. It was published in the daily Diario Financiero -DF under the title “Planes reguladores: múltiples actores y falta de certeza jurídica” (“Master plans: multiple agents and lack of legal certainty”).

In it, he says: “There are large urban areas with a large potential for development, but they are still in a state of legal uncertainty and excluded from any development in favor of urban dwellers, due to the lack of certainty in the rules and the necessary financing to carry out works.” At the same time, he adds, “it is worth mentioning the disturbing practice of some administrative authorities – which are not legislative bodies – of attributing themselves the role of a source of law, issuing norms, decrees or circulars that have come to constitute true “urban planning laws” when this is beyond their scope of authority.”
