non-buildable area

Finding the land on which you want to see your construction project materialized is an important step.

You must, before considering the plans, ensure that the land you own meets the needs (professional and personal) of the project and that the constraints of urban planning attached to it do not change its realization.

First and foremost, check that the land you are proposing is available for purchase and is not subject to any family or other dispute. After only, you look for answers to the following concerns:

  2. Legal easements such as easement of passage, sight, common courtyard …
  3. Conventional easements such as the authorization to pass to a neighbor whose land is not yet landlocked, or resulting from the settlement of subdivisions that may provide for example, the right to build …
  4. Possible classifications in protected area, classified, safeguarded or at risk: is it a marshy area? Is it resistant to natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, landslides …)?

Is the land serviced?

Ask about access routes: do they exist? Are they in enough good condition to allow the transport of building materials? Do you not isolate yourself from modern life? Does the land provide access to networks of modern life: the area is well supplied with water and electricity to supply the site and allow the installation of modern equipment.

Potential for sanitation: are there pipelines for the circulation of wastewater? Are garbage picked up? The cleanliness of the environment around the field is also to be controlled to avoid dealing with mosquitoes.

Also make sure the quality of the soil and basement so you do not run the risk of seeing your house crumble after a few years. To do this, call an expert (surveyor, surveyor).
