Arbitrary Buildings in Greece
Arbitrary Buildings. There are many buildings in Greece or parts of buildings that were not constructed according to the building construction permit.
The usual handling for these buildings or parts of them is demolition, however due to the sheer amount of irregularities that took place the last 30 years, the Greek government decided to give a chance to the owners of such buildings to come forward and state the excess construction to the building authorities, pay an appropriate fine, keep the building and excluding from demolition.
If you own a building that was not build according to the construction permit (all of it or part of it), it is in your best interest to state the excess construction and make your property entirely legitimate.
Our Office will carry the whole process of calculating the government fine, produce the appropriate plans and clean up any irregularities of your property according to the government law 4178 of 2013.
Please contact us for all necessary details and on how to check if your property is legitimate in its entity.
When you buy a property it is necessary that it legal. If it an arbitrary building you need to make sure that the building has been declared in the law 4178/2013 and the arbitrary building fine has been paid before you buy the property.
When you decide to buy a building you require the building permit and the surveying topography plan and bring to us for thorough examination of the legality of the property you are interested in.
All new deeds require that buildings are legal. The notaries in Greece are not allowed to conduct a deed without an engineering certificate of legality.
