6 Easy Points to Understand If You Want to Legalize Your Property in Serbia

Legalizing objects without construction or use permit in Serbia can be a complex and time-consuming process, but it is possible.

Here are the general steps involved:

Prepare a geodetic survey

  1. Hire a licensed surveyor or architect to prepare a geodetic survey of the object and create a technical documentation file.

Proof of ownership of the land

  1. Obtain an extract from the cadastral register for the land where the object is located, confirming the ownership status of the land.

Technical documentation filings

  1. Submit the technical documentation file and extract from the cadastral register to the local urban planning and construction authority.

Official review of submitted documentation

  1. The local urban planning and construction authority will review the documentation and may require additional information or documentation to be submitted.

Decision on legalization

  1. If the local authority approves the documentation, a decision on legalization will be issued, and the object will be registered in the cadastre.

Appeal in case the first instance outcome is unfavorable

  1. If the local authority denies the legalization request, it is possible to appeal the decision to the higher authorities or courts.

It’s important to note that the process for legalizing objects without construction or use permit can vary depending on the specific circumstances and location of the object.

PS. It is advisable to consult with a licensed surveyor, architect, or lawyer familiar with the local laws and regulations to guide you through the process.
