BUILDING USE PERMIT
CHECK & FORMATION OF DOCUMENTATION
A license is required because it
- proves that the building is safe for residents
- enables the buyer to get a bank loan
- can increase the value of the property
- can guarantee compensation from insurance in the event of an accident
However, applying for and formalizing a use permit can turn out to be a long and drawn-out process if the necessary documentation is missing or does not meet the requirements. The experienced experts of Tulipunane OÜ will help you apply for a use permit for your building and save you from tedious business!
The price of the licensedepends on several special factors, e.g. the size, complexity and location of the building. The price is also influenced by the condition of the specific building and the existing documentation. To get an exact price quote, contact us and we will find the most reasonable solution together.

What is a license and why is it needed?
Permission to useis the consent of the local government that the building meets the established requirements and can be used.
At first glance, it may seem like an unnecessary formality - if the owner lives in the house and everything is fine, why do you need an occupancy permit? However, this turns out to be a problem if you want to buy a house with bank financing. Today, banks are of the opinion that they will not finance the purchase of real estate without a use permit. If they should do so, then only if the lack of a permit is well justified or a clause is included in the loan agreement that the use permit is requested for a specific period of time. However, the lack of permission is unfortunately mostly behind the administration, which cannot be considered a valid reason for its absence. Thus, in many cases, you may find yourself in a situation where your own funds are lacking, the bank will not give a loan, and the home of your dreams remains unacquired.
However, even if you have built the house yourself or bought it with your own funds and plan to live there for the rest of your life, unexpected situations may arise where you have to sell the house. Having a license is extremely important in such a case, and its absence can scare away a large number of customers.
The insurance does not cover buildings without an occupancy permit
If the property does not have an occupancy permit, one of the biggest risks is insurance claims. In the absence of a license, the insurance company may refuse to compensate the costs in the event of an accident. This is due to the fact that a building without a use permit is illegal and it is not possible to say exactly what caused the accident. In the case of an unregulated building, an accident may occur based on the non-compliance of the building with the requirements. Accidents caused by fire are especially dangerous. One of the necessary parts of applying for a use permit is the performance of a fire safety audit and an electrical audit. If an accident occurs based on non-compliance with the requirements of the electrical system, which is often one of the causes of a fire, you can be quite sure that you will have to pay for the damage out of your own pocket.
How to check whether the building is legalized / whether there is a use permit?
The existence of a use permit can be checked in the environment of the building register (ehr.ee). To do this, proceed as follows:
1. Enter the building's address, cadastral code, etc. in the search.
2. Click on the "construction register code" of the building you are looking for
3. Select the sub-item “Documents” from the list
4. If the use permit has been issued and entered in the register, you can find the use permit in the list of documents.
What documentation is required to apply for a use permit?
When applying for a use permit, the following must be submitted:
The construction project according to which the building is built
Construction expertise audit report*
Electrical installation audit
Deed of demarcation of the building or post-construction control measurement
Copies of water and sewerage, electricity supply and garbage collection contracts (gas contract in the case of gas heating)
Payment order proving the payment of the state fee
*In the event that the required documents of covered works and construction diaries are missing
What to do if the documentation is incomplete?
If the documentation for applying for a use permit is incomplete, these documents must be prepared or replaced (in the case of older buildings) with corresponding audits. Audits and expertise must be issued by experts with professional certificates. Don't worry, our experts deal with these topics on a daily basis. We replace and supplement the missing documentation.
How does the application for a use permit work?
If the documentation is available, the application for the use permit is done digitally via the EHR (building register). You can upload it yourself or have Tulipunane OÜ experts do it for you.
