Peculiarities of changing the target purpose of residential premises to non-residential premises

It is possible to change the purpose of residential premises to non-residential premises in the following cases:

  • The premises are located on the basement or first floor, in the lower rooms of buildings.
  • It is possible to make a separate entrance from the street to the premises.

Important: according to Ukrainian legislation, it is prohibited to transfer high-rise apartments to the non-residential fund for industrial activities. If you need to transfer residential premises to the category of non-residential, you must remember about the legalization of such actions. Arbitrary reconstruction of the premises is strictly prohibited. Such actions are subject to the category of administrative liability, and if your activity leads to harm to health or damage to other people’s property, the administrative penalty is automatically reclassified into a criminal one. In the application, it is necessary to specify the purpose for which the change in the purpose of the residential premises is being carried out, and for what activity you will use the non-residential premises.

The next stage – the Center considers the application, checks the documents for compliance with the requirements established by the law. If all formalities are met, the owner receives an order to transfer the residential premises to the non-residential segment.

The deadline for reviewing documents, as well as making a decision on the transfer of housing to a non-housing fund, should not exceed 30 calendar days from the date of submission of the application and relevant documents.

  1. Absence of others registered in the apartment or house.
  2. Absence of arrests, encumbrances, mortgages, debts, loans.
