Croatia's Ministry of Construction has announced that the final deadline for which owners of illegally built buildings can apply to have them legalised will be 30 June 2013. After that date the Ministry says that the government will pay for the legalisation and send the invoice to the buildings owner. If the owner does not pay the invoice then the state becomes the owner of the building.
The Ministry also announced that under the new law, the legalisation fee will be able to be paid off in installments of up to five years, and utility charges in that time will be 50 per cent cheaper.
The government expects that there will now be rush at the counters as people start to complete to neccessary requirements. Under the previous law, legalising a house of 200 square meters would cost up to 100,000 kuna (15,000 Euros) in some attractive areas.
Under the new law it will still not be possible to legalise objects that are not in accordance with the regional plan, unless the building is a maximum of two storeys.
Another addition to the new law is the abolition of the previous statutory provision under which an object can not be legalised within 70 meters from the sea, reports daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
