LFA (Small Architectural Forms) is a real estate object that functions independently from other real estate. The category of temporary structures includes the following objects: pavilions, kiosks, shopping malls, seasonal sites, terraces. These must be one-story buildings made of lightweight structures. MAFs are built without a foundation and are characterized by temporary ones.

Each LFA is required to obtain official permission to carry out the relevant activity. To legalize a temporary structure in Kyiv is a service provided by PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS lawyers.

Main characteristics of MAFs

A temporary building for the implementation of a particular business activity may have an additional enclosed space for the temporary stay of people or not have it.

The state classifier of buildings and structures contains definitions of the term “building”, their classification and list. Temporary structures are not classified as buildings and do not act as real estate.

Thus, MAFs are movable property. However, despite this, temporary structures must be installed taking into account not only construction, but also other standards relevant to structures and buildings.

What documents are needed to legalize a temporary structure?

Depending on the region of Ukraine, different procedures for obtaining documents – permits for the establishment of a LFA may be applied. First, in any case, you should obtain permission to lease the land. This issue is resolved at meetings of city authorities.

Standard list of documents for the legalization of a temporary structure in Kyiv:

  1. Permits from the Main Department of Urban Planning.
  2. Photo fixation.
  3. Situational diagram.
  4. Initial data for design implementation.
  5. Another cadastral plan.
  6. Passport of binding of a temporary structure (binding diagram, drawing of nodes – connection to engineering networks).
  7. License granted by the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate.

After the installation of the MAF, the question arises of connecting it to the mains. To do this, evaluate the technical conditions and perform verification calculations.

The submitted application, together with a package of documents, is considered by the relevant authorities within 15-20 working days. After a positive decision is made, a binding passport is provided. This is the main construction document, without which the construction of the MAF will be considered illegal.


The binding passport is considered valid for three years. At the same time, it is necessary to build a temporary structure in Kyiv no later than six months from the date of issuance of permits. After the arrangement of the MAF, they are contributed to the authorized capital of the enterprise.
The owner of the temporary structure should contact the representatives of the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture as soon as possible with the appropriate statement confirming the fulfillment of the requirements of the binding passport.
