In December 2021, Slovenian legislation adopted new laws regarding the legalization of constructions that were carried out without or in contradiction with the obtained building permit. With the successful legalization of the building, we obtain both a building- and a use permit.
"Legalization is the process of regulating the legal status of an already built building, part of a building, reconstruction or change of purpose of a building, carried out without a building permit or in violation of the conditions specified by the building permit, in which a decision on legalization or a permit for a long-standing facility is issued.
Legalization is not possible for a facility that was built after April 30th, 2004 and for which a legally binding environmental protection consent or a legally binding nature protection consent would have to be obtained before the construction, but this was not obtained, or intervention was carried out in the facility, for which a legally binding environmental protection consent or a legally binding nature protection consent should be obtained, but this was not obtained."

At AAb, we are at your disposal to manage the entire administrative process, which consists of two main steps; with the first we check whether your facility can be legalized, as there are legal and technical restrictions that may prevent obtaining a building and use permit. With the second step, we prepare the entire administrative and technical documentation for the submission of the application and, in general, we conduct the administrative procedure until the acquisition of a final decision on legalization.
