On Monday the regulation allowing the construction of single-family houses up to 70 m² without obtaining a building permit has entered into force, appointing a project manager and keeping a register of works, in the so-called request procedure with the construction project. These buildings must be self-contained, with no more than two stories, constructed to meet the housing needs of the investor.
Uściński in TV Republika pointed out that building houses up to 70 m² without a permit, only on the basis of a notification, will not cause architectural disorder. – The municipality is responsible for the possibility or not of building on a given site. It is the municipality that decides on the development of the territory. When the local plan allows the construction of houses, such houses up to 70 m² can be built in a very simplified procedure. In the absence of local land use plans, the municipality will publish the construction conditions within 21 days, which is much faster than before. This will speed up the construction by a few months – said Uściński.
He pointed out that the absence of the need to appoint a construction manager is only a proposition that should not be used. – If someone spends hundreds of thousands of zlotys of his own money to build a house, he knows about it and will be able to do it himself, and if he does not know about it, he will have to hire someone with the appropriate qualifications , because he will not be able to sign a declaration in which he takes full responsibility, noted the deputy minister.
He added that the Poles are a reasonable nation. “If someone spends their own money, they will do their best to build this house,” he said.
A house cheaper than a studio?
He pointed out that the so-called a house without formalities must have 70 m² on the ground, while the usable area can be more than 100 m² – Although the prices of building materials are higher than before, building such a house will be cheaper in suburban and rural areas than buying a studio in a big city. This is an alternative for Polish families – says Uściński.
Earlier, during the presentation of the Polish Deal program, President Jarosław Kaczyński said that such houses can be built for as little as PLN 100,000. zloty.
However, the President of PiS and Deputy Minister Uściński ignored the fact that apart from the construction itself, the purchase of land will represent an additional cost, since not everyone has it.
Is it possible to integrate 100,000 with the construction of a house up to 70 m²? PLN, we checked Business Insider Polska in May. – The main determinant of the price is of course the design itself, and especially its shape. A simple square or rectangular house, which has been covered with a gable roof, will certainly be it will be cheaper than a house with a somewhat more complicated shape covered with a hipped roof or a flat roof. It is also worth considering a garage, which is not included in the usable space, but also generates considerable construction costs (after all, it is about 20 m of additional space to build ) – said Ewa Klemanów from New-House.
As she pointed out, more often than not, clients decide to build homes to the developer’s standard. – However more and more companies, like ours, offer a turnkey and turnkey realization with land development. The average cost of building a house with a usable area of 60-65 m without a garage is about 340,000 PLN according to the standard of the developer. gross PLN, while in turnkey condition from about 412 thousand PLN gross. Giving away a turnkey house with a garden costs about 461 PLN gross – Klemanów listed.
It should be noted that the prices of building materials have increased significantly since May.
An alternative can be a modular house. Here, however, the prices are also not much lower. At Hocomo, we hear that the cost of making a year-round house with an area of 70 m². with heating is about 300 thousand. zloty – not including the purchase of the plot. Construction can be completed in about three months.
How do these rates compare to studios in major cities? Here are the average offer prices for new studios per square meter according to data provided by RynekPierwotny.pl:
- Warsaw – 16,000 PLN 096,
- Gdańsk – 13 thousand 792 PLN,
- Wrocław – 13 thousand 820 PLN,
- Poznan – 12 thousand 941 PLN,
- Krakow – 12 thousand 294 PLN.
It follows that the price of a new 30-meter studio in a large city is about 390 thousand. PLN, and in Warsaw even 480 thousand. zloty. House for 100 thousand. PLN, mentioned by Jarosław Kaczyński, seems to be an abstract, even when we have our own plot. If, on the other hand, we take into account the words of the minister who building a house outside the city will be cheaper than buying a studio in a big city, this may turn out to be true. Provided, however, that we do not have to buy the land on which we will build this house.
However, it should also be noted that at comparable prices, the floor area of the house will be more than twice that of the analyzed apartment.
