Legalisation of illegally built buildings

Legal construction increases the safety and value of your property, and allows for good-quality spatial planning of settlements 

Citizens who built a construction work without obtaining valid building permits could have, in accordance with the Act on Proceeding with Illegally Built Buildings, submitted an application for its legalisation to the competent administrative office of a city or county that performs activities related to physical planning and construction in the territory where the construction work is located. Citizens who failed to submit an application for legalisation on time, i.e. by 30 June 2018, which was the legal deadline for submitting applications, may contact the above administrative department to check the possibility of regulating the status of their construction work pursuant to the Building Act.
