We can tell you specific time limits and price of the unauthorized construction legalization only after we receive full information about the construction site and study the Client’s situation. 

For this purpose, we usually offer our Clients a preliminary consultation with our lawyers.

The legislation regulating the construction sector in Ukraine is unfortunately incomplete and unclear. This causes a number of practical problems when trying to legitimize unauthorized construction in Ukraine.

For example: the documents are processed by regulatory authorities for a too long period of time, constant and unreasonable refusals, etc.

Important to know

The above list of documents for the legalization of  an unauthorized construction shall be submitted to legalize construction through state authorities. 

Besides, you can legalize an unauthorized construction through the court. As a rule, this option is less reliable and more economical. 

The thing is that the court can recognize the ownership rights to the residential property, but cannot put it into operation. This may cause additional costs.


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.


Volodymyr Gurlov, Managing partner

A residential house, building, structure or other real estate property is considered an unauthorized construction, if they are built or are under construction on the land plot not allocated for this purpose, or without a proper permit or duly approved project, or with a material breach of construction norms and regulations.

What risks does a failure to legalize unauthorized construction entail?
  • In case of complaints, the court may decide to dismantle such a construction project;
  • Unauthorized construction can’t be sold, donated or disposed in any other way as a real estate property. All these actions can be taken only after the registration of the ownership rights to the unauthorized construction.
Remember that the procedure of legalization of the unauthorized construction is individual and depends on many factors:
  • Availability of documents for the land plot;
  • The area of the self-construction object;
  • Compliance of the constructed object with the construction norms and regulations;
  • Purpose of the construction object;
  • Year of the construction start and completion;
  • Availability of documents at the real estate developer or their complete absence, etc.
