When do I need a building permission?

You don’t need a permission to make small changes inside the house as long as its structure is maintained. You do however need permission for all other construction work and new build. The builder you hire for the work can help you with that. Constructions using wood is generally easier to get approved. Building in metal and concrete comes with specific safety and architectural requirements.

If an illegal construction work is spotted by a fiscal agent, the fines start at € 500,- and can go up until € 200.000,00
