Introducing the possibility of building houses up to 70m2 only after submitting a notification is one of the most important changes announced for the real estate market under the Polish Order. IN YOUR OPINION, IS IT REALLY A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE?

According to the information contained in the government’s legislative work list, the Council of Ministers is to adopt, still in the current quarter, a draft amendment to the Construction Law assuming introduction of the above solution.

The essence of the new regulations is to allow execution of this type of residential investments without a manager and building book, but ONLY ON THE BASIS OF A NOTIFICATION TO WHICH A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT WILL HAVE TO BE ATTACHED. These structures will be allowed to have two stories.

What is important for small houses, a SPECIAL PROCEDURE FOR ISSUANCE OF BUILDING CONDITIONS will be introduced. Officials will have 30 days to settle such matters.

Meanwhile, many experts point to the risks associated with this type of solutions – especially in terms of lack of control over such investments, also in terms of their compliance with safety standards.
