Legalization of Unauthorized Construction
Unauthorized structure means any construction which has no documents of title or permits for execution of works. In Odessa unauthorized construction is a rather spread practice.
Why does unauthorized construction appear?Unauthorized constructions may appear because the public does not know the legislative requirements in full, or as a result of wilful actions because obtaining and agreement of documents for execution of construction works is a lasting and complicated process. However, a person who has made or is making unauthorized construction does not acquire the title to such facility. Therefore, to erect a house and own a house is not the same.
In practice we have such situation that in Ukraine and, particularly, in Odessa many people execute construction works without registration of permits. Such citizens hope that they will legalize it later without any special problems. Still we have to point out that such action falls under administrative liability and is punishable by a fine which one has to obligatory pay before legalizing the unauthorized construction.
Legalization of the unauthorized construction: procedure and methods of legalizationIt is difficult to legalize the unauthorized construction without assistance of lawyers. Legalization (registration) means a process of official recognition and perfection of the title to real estate by state authorities. Having legalized a construction, you get a registered certificate of title to it.Detached residential houses, garden houses and cottages, outbuildings and facilities with attachments to them as well as industrial buildings can be legalized in accordance with an established procedure envisaging certain steps that we should make:
- We conclude a contract with the client wherein we indicate the periods, cost and the final result (acting on behalf of the client is accomplished on the basis of the power of attorney).

Legalization of the constructed detached houseThose persons who neglect to legalize their houses take a risk to dishouse. Registration of ownership means a process that is indispensable part of any “owner” of the unauthorized construction. One may consider himself owner only in case he has registered his housing properly.
Legalization of the erected house has its peculiarities. It is impossible to register a construction until the registration of the land has been completed. Registration of a construction existing on a non-registered land site is made as follows: first, it is necessary to legally fix one’s title to the land site, and then begin to register the construction. That is why, and it happens quite frequently, legalization of a private house takes more time because it is required to register the land site first.
Why is it important to register unauthorized constructions?The persons who have legalized the erected construction are fully entitled to sell, rent, gift and propagate his or her legally acquired property. A legalized construction precludes swindlers to take this property away from you. It should be noted that any type of real estate facilities is to be registered with the State Register of Title to Real Estate, irrespective of whether it is a residential house or a garage, shed or a bath-house. Registration is an obligatory part of the process which makes you the absolute owner of the real estate. Any erected construction must be legalized. i.e., you should register the house in compliance with the legislation of Ukraine. In the absence of the document of title any house, such as he is, may not be legally considered as yours.
It is not worthwhile to delay the registration. There are situations when documents are needed “here and now”, and it is at this moment that you understand the profound meaning of the saying - «Meet all deadlines».
