Production of Building Subdivision Plans
What is subdivision?
Subdivision is a procedure for establishing ownership of a specific part of a building and entering it into land registers that are the only legal proof of ownership
The owner of a flat in a non-subdivided building is the owner of an undefined part of the building.
Each co-owner of the building, apart from the flat, also has a relative (ideal) share in the common premises of the building (basement, staircases, corridors, attic etc.) and part of the land on which the building was built. If the building has not been subdivided, it is not fully clear which part of the building is in someone’s ownership and to what share.
How is subdivision carried out?
The building subdivision plan, i.e. the plan of separate parts of the building, graphically and textually determines the specific parts in the building owned by each of the co-owners, the corresponding secondary parts, the shares of the co-owners in the common parts of the building and the land on which the building is built. During the production of the plan, it is necessary to accurately measure the as-built status of the building and to draw and calculate the net usable floor area. Next, a proposal for the registration of specific parts of the building is made. This proposal must be approved by all co-owners. Ownership of a special part of the building is established by entering it in the land register as a right related to a specific part. The building subdivision plan is produced according to the Act on Ownership and Other Real Rights.
