We design,study and issue building permits according new law Ν.4067/2012 for:
A construction permit or building permit is a permit required in most jurisdictions for new construction, or adding onto pre-existing structures, and renovations. Generally, the new construction must be inspected during construction and after completion to ensure compliance with national, regional, and local building codes. Failure to obtain a permit can result in significant fines and penalties, and even demolition of unauthorized construction if it cannot be made to meet code.
Complicated Planning Laws
Planning laws are very complicated and all sellers will claim that you can build on
The requirements are most flexible for land located within the city or village plans. Be
aware, however, that to build on land located within the village plans it is essential
that you have public road access and you must have a paper confirming this from
the municipality signed by the Mayor.
To build on land within 500m of the boundary of the village plans, you will need a
minimum 2000m2 plot but this zoning is not available everywhere on the island,
typically, only around mountain villages.
To build on land out of the plans the basic rule is that you need at least 4000m2,
however, it can be less if the plot is adjacent to a national or main provincial road. In
all cases, if the plot is out of the plans, it is essential that you have a Certificate to Build
from the Forestry Authority confirming that the plot is not designated as forestry.
Simply because the land has no trees on it does not mean it is not affected by this.
To complicate matters further the rules are different and vary from one zone to
another in the area of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.
