Registration Procedure for Small Real Estate Simplified
On 24 April 2015, the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine adopted the Order № 79 “On Approval of the Procedure for Acceptance for Operation and Technical Inspection of Individual (Mansion) Residential Houses, Garden Cottages, Holiday Cottages, Household (Homestead) Buildings and Structures, Public Buildings and Agricultural Facilities and Structures of I and II Complexity Categories Built without the Construction Permit”.
This Order established a simplified procedure for acceptance for operation and registration of ownership title to individual non-business houses (with extensions) built before 12 March 2011.
In this context, the simplified procedure applies only if:
- floor area of a residential building is up to 300 square meters;
- floor area of auxiliary structures is up to 100 square meters;
- no deviations from the requirements of the state construction regulations, defined by such regulations as unacceptable (forbidden).
Acceptance for operation is performed on a free of charge basis by the state architectural and construction control body, within 10 business days upon application filed by owners (users) of the land plots where such real estate items are located.
It is worth noting that technical passport production and technical inspection, registration of ownership title are performed on a paid basis. On 29 April 2015, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the “Procedure for Transfer of Holiday and Garden Cottages that Meet State Construction Regulations into Residential Houses” by its Resolution No. 321.
