Certificate for entering a building into Exploitation

Certificate for entering a building into Exploitation – Also known within the area of Construction Law as “Protocol Act 16”, or “habitation certificate”, it is the final official document during construction. This document is issued by the local Authorities to certify that the new building has been completed in compliance with the provisions of the local Building legislation and that it can be legally operated/habited in the future. In practice, it is not advisable to acquire ownership of a house or apartment without habitation permit, because if it could not be obtained, then you won’t be allowed by the Law to use it, and may find difficulties to re-sell it – since the new buyer or their lawyer may not repeat your mistake but may ask if the habitation certificate has been granted.
