Removal of building
If you want to demolish an existing building or structure, you must first apply to your local or district authority for a demolition permit. If there is no building on your property, but it is still there on the map, you will also need to apply to the local authority for an official certificate to prove that there is no building on the property.
If you have a valid demolition permit, the demolition has been carried out, or you have received an official demolition certificate, you can call a surveyor to prepare and submit a land registry plan of the demolition.
The Land Registry Office stamps a copy of the plan (receives it, sends it to you) and the surveyor sends this copy to you. This stamped copy is accepted by most banks and authorities, as the actual transfer to the Land Registry Office takes place later, and the Land Registry Office sends a notification to the owner. In some cases, demolition permits may not be required for certain types of buildings, as defined by the local authority or the land surveyor regulations based on the type of use or floor area.
Removal of building: what do you need to know?
Removal of building is necessary if the building has already been demolished but is still shown on the map.
The property market has been booming for years, and as a result, properties that were previously almost impossible to sell are finding new owners relatively quickly, or at very low prices - even properties that were long considered worthy of demolition. This, of course, starts a lengthy process which, unfortunately, is necessary if you want to build a new house on the property: first of all, you need a demolition permit, and the demolition itself can only begin once the owner is in possession of it. Once the work has been completed, you will need to obtain an official certificate from the local authority stating that there are no more buildings on the property. Once all this is done, the next step is the removal of building, which is also not a quick process, but it has to be done because without it, the new building could not be registered in the property register.
In possession of the official certificate, the owner must call a surveyor who will draw up a plan of the removal and submit it to the Land Registry Office, where it will be received and a copy sent to the owner by the surveyor. The final step in the process of removal of building is when the Land Registry Office sends the owner a notice of land registry transfer.
