New regulations in real estate

Real estate market growth brings new rules for building reception

Lately, the real estate market has grown. Existing constructions are selling rapidly and investors have begun new residential projects. In this context, it is good to know what changes have occurred with regard to building reception.

The Romanian Government has approved the changing of H.G. no. 273/1994 regarding the reception of the construction works and related installations.

According to the new provisions the reception commission can no longer recommend postponing the reception but only admitting or rejecting the reception.

The new regulations do not apply to constructions for which the final reception is in progress when the new regulations enters into force.

However, the commission make the final reception according to the new regulations if previously  was made a reception with objections.

The recommendation below are very important!

The Reception Commission issues a decision that is not just a recommendation. Within 3 days the investor endorses the admission or rejection of the reception and signs the minutes at the end of the works.

If you are the investor but do not own the property, you must deliver to the owner the received construction.

Please note that you can’t use the building if the commission rejects the reception. In order to use the building you must make all the necessary remedies. Until then, you must put the building in a state of conservation by your care and expense.

If you are the the real estate owner you must organize the final reception within 10 days after the expiration of the warranty period.
