habitability drawing

I think this refers to the "permiso de habitabilidad"issued by the local authorities so that the house or flat can be seen to be safe and complies with the statutory regulations.

existing plan

I belive "plano de subsistencia" refers to a drawing made of an existing structure, including any changes or additions since the original plans. (see http://www.mvl.gov.ar/legis_archivos/CEtotalpublicarA4.pdf, http://www.arquilegal.com/articulos/35.htm) It may be used to legalize existing construction that was performed without the required permist or for which the documents have been lost. The English term (at least in the US) is "existing plan."
