Legalize the house

Legalize the house


Oleksandr Kolesnichenko

Every year in Ukraine, the volume of unauthorized construction increases. This situation is provoked by a number of factors, among which is the lack of a unified order of interaction between local self-government bodies and state authorities in terms of permit procedures. It takes a lot of effort and time to complete all the necessary documents. You can legalize the house with the help of “PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS” employees.


Legalization of a house in Ukraine: legal norms

According to Part 1 of Article 376 of the Civil Code of Ukraine, a residential building, structure, building, real estate falls under the category of self-construction in cases where they were built without a corresponding document or their construction took place on a plot of land that is not allocated to achieve this goals Both in the first and second cases, we are talking about significant violations of construction rules and regulations.


Any real estate object that was built on a plot of land must have all the permits. Otherwise, its exploitation is accompanied by the onset of administrative liability.

And we are talking not only about fines for unauthorized construction, but also about problems with the connection of communications.

The legalization of a house is a gradual and lengthy process that depends on the specific self-build, the year of its construction, the designation of the land plot, etc.

We would like to remind that the person who carried out self-construction is not its owner. This object must be legalized by obtaining the appropriate legal document that confirms ownership of the house.



There are 2 main ways of legitimizing self-development:

  • General order. After legalization of the house, the self-build owner receives a certificate of ownership.

The general order is regulated by normative acts of a local nature. It consists of the following stages:

  1. Preparation of an application from the owner and a package of documents: acts of completed works, contracts, projects, technical passport, expert opinions, land documents, etc.
  2. Creation of a committee to work with documentation.
  3. Receipt by the owner of the Act on acceptance into operation of the building.
  • Judicial procedure. Making a positive decision allows you to recognize the right of ownership of self-build.

The judicial procedure for the legalization of self-build is also quite widespread. The main thing is to make a claim correctly. The lawyers of “PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS” can help you with this.
