Building easement

An approved building permit may require the establishment of an easement. Easement means that the project may use or utilize another property.

There are two types of easements: building easements and real estate easements. Building easements include, for example, rights to use parking spaces and waste facilities in a building. Real estate easements include rights to use the parking spaces or passages on a property.

Building easements are established at the Building Control Service’s general division and real estate easements at the Real Estate Department’s City Survey Division. An easement required in a building permit must be established before the building’s commissioning review. After they have been established, easements are recorded in the real estate register. Building easements remain in effect even if the property is sold.

Building easements are established on the basis of applications. Applications must include power(s) of attorney, the easement agreement, real estate ownership reports and real estate register extracts. In case of a limited liability company or other juristic person, a trade register extract or other document must be attached that shows who are entitled to sign for the company or juristic person. In case of a limited liability housing company, the application must include the minutes of the board meeting in which the company has approved the establishment of the easement. If property owned by a limited liability housing company is involved, the minutes of the meeting of shareholders must be attached to the application.  

In matters concerning the establishment, removal and/or changes to an easement as well as in matters concerning mutual arrangements at properties, contact the area’s construction lawyer at the Building Control Service’s general division. In matters concerning real estate easements, contact the Real Estate Department’s City Survey Division.
