Investment Planning: Compliance with Regulations and Zoning Conditions

RPMS Law Firm provides assistance in matters related to construction law. This offer is primarily aimed at private and public investors, as well as those who encounter difficulties in obtaining construction permits.

Our specialists guide clients through the entire investment process, including zoning conditions and local development plans. According to Polish real estate law, the construction of any property begins with selecting a design that complies with local zoning or construction conditions.

Within these services, we can assist you with:

  • Obtaining zoning conditions (conceptual design, utilities, environmental decisions, etc.)
  • Filing complaints about administrative inaction
  • Procedures for changing local zoning and land development plans
  • Mediation between parties
  • Surveying and cartography matters based on real estate law
  • Compensation claims related to the implementation of local zoning and development plans

Obtaining Building Permits

A building permit is an administrative decision that allows construction to take place. This document specifies the conditions that must be met to legally carry out a construction project. In Polish law, it plays a crucial role. Without the appropriate permit, you risk being ordered to demolish the structure, even if it is already completed.

Interestingly, Polish law also accommodates construction works that do not require such a permit. Nevertheless, they must still be reported to the relevant authority.

By using our law firm’s services, you don’t need to delve into complex regulations. A real estate lawyer will provide support in:

  • The entire process of obtaining a building permit or an occupancy permit, as well as other construction process documents (some of which can be obtained within 24 hours)
  • Construction process matters (project execution, disputes arising from agreements with investors, developers, designers, and contractors, legal support for construction work, contract execution), as well as disputes in this regard

Additionally, we provide advice and conduct an analysis of the entire documentation (primarily focused on examining contracts in terms of essential order conditions within public procurement).
