Registration of unfinished construction

Legal registration of unfinished construction is an important component of the construction and real estate development process. To successfully complete this procedure and ensure your future peace of mind, you need qualified legal support and advice.

What is an object of unfinished construction?

Unfinished construction is a structure or object that is in a state of active construction, but does not have the status of acceptance into operation in accordance with current legislation. The main feature of an unfinished object located on a plot of land is the impossibility of its functioning as intended due to the lack of complete construction readiness. This facility has a construction permit.

How to arrange unfinished business?

  1. Contact the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning to obtain a building passport or urban planning conditions (if necessary).
  2. Carrying out technical supervision and, if necessary, concluding a general contract.
  3. Development of project documentation and author supervision (if required).
  4. Submitting a notice of the start of construction work (for SS1 liability class objects) or obtaining a construction permit (for SS2 and SS3 liability class objects).
  5. Conducting a technical inventory and obtaining a technical passport.
  6. Registration of ownership of an unfinished building, including obtaining an extract from the register.

These stages of the procedure are the same for all regions of Ukraine. If you need additional information about these steps, contact the company “Prykhodko and Partners” and make an appointment for a consultation, where our specialists will gladly listen to you and help you solve your case.

What documents are required?

To start the procedure of registration of an unfinished object, it is necessary to perform a number of steps and collect a complete package of documents from the owner. This procedure involves two main registration options, which require different sets of documents.

The first option concerns owners who already have all the necessary documents and just need to register their unfinished construction. To do this, you need to prepare a passport and an identification code (for an individual) or statutory documents (for a legal entity), a document confirming ownership of land, a registered notice of the start of construction work or obtaining a construction permit, as well as a technical passport with information about readiness of the object.

The second option is used in the case when the owner does not have documents and needs construction registration from the beginning. Thus, he should be provided with a passport or an identification code (for a natural person) or statutory documents (for a legal entity), a land title document, as well as a schematic plan of the location of the unfinished building with all the information about the boundaries of the plot for the necessary analysis. This approach makes it possible to clearly distinguish the procedures and, accordingly, determine the necessary documents for the successful completion of the registration of unfinished construction.

There may be problems with the completion of the unfinished business

During registration of unfinished construction, various problems may arise that should be carefully considered:

  1. One of the main problems can be the lack of necessary documentation, such as a construction passport, construction permit, technical passport, land plot documents, etc. This can delay the registration process and become an obstacle to determining ownership rights.
  2. Another problem may be the presence of legal disputes or disputes with the owners of the building. For example, if an object has several owners, there may be misunderstandings and conflicts that need to be resolved before ownership can be registered.
  3. Some unfinished constructions may have technical problems or may not meet building codes and standards. This may require additional costs to correct the deficiencies or result in the refusal of registration.
  4. In addition to technical and legal issues, the registration of the unfinished building can also face tax and financial aspects. For example, tax obligations or debts to contractors and suppliers.

All these problems can be solved with the help of qualified lawyers and construction experts, who will provide professional advice and help avoid possible difficulties in the process of registration of unfinished construction.
