Important to know

It’s worth remembering that an unauthorized construction can be legalized both through state authorities (the list of documents mentioned above is intended for this option) and through the court.

Legalization of an authorized construction through the court is usually a less reliable and more time-consuming process. The court can recognize the ownership rights to the construction, but it can’t commission it, and this may lead to additional money and time expenditures.


Can I sell a house (a residential property) without legitimizing and commencing it?

No. There are no legal mechanisms for such a procedure at this time. However, if you contact our lawyers, they will all help you pass all stages within the shortest possible time.

How to determine the date of completion of the unauthorized construction?

In fact, the date can be determined by the real estate developer. There are no other ways to determine the completion of construction.

What is an authorized construction?

A residential house, building, construction, which:

  • is built or under construction on the land plot not allocated for this purpose;
  • is built without proper permit or duly approved project;
  • has been constructed in material breach of building norms and regulations.

What are the risks of a failure to properly legalize unauthorized construction?

If the court receives any complaints about the construction, it may decide to dismantle such construction.

You won’t be able to sell, present or otherwise dispose of the unauthorized construction as a property until it is legalized.

Legalization of an unauthorized construction in Ukraine

It’s quite difficult to legalize an unauthorized construction in Ukraine, as the legalization procedure is absolutely unique for each individual case. It’s worth remembering that the result is influenced by such factors as:

  • Availability of documents for the land plot;
  • The area of the unauthorized construction;
  • Compliance of the constructed object with the building norms and regulations;
  • Purpose of the construction object;
  • Year of the construction start and completion;
  • Availability or lack of documents at the real estate developer, etc.

Our practical experience shows that comprehensive knowledge of related areas of law allows a broader view of the case, which, in turn, allows to find the best possible solution faster and more effective.
