Building permits

The provisions and regulations for construction work are laid down in the Land Use and Building Act and in the municipal building regulations. Generally, all construction work requires permission. Building permits are to be applied from the building supervision authority. Additional requirements to be taken into consideration include how demanding the building project is, the expertise and professional skills of the applicant and other persons responsible for the design and construction of the building. In addition, the provisions and regulations for good building practices must be met.

The permit application must be sent well in advance before the beginning of the construction work. In all permits you should first consult the building supervision authority.

All of the permits are governed by the Humppila municipal building regulations (available in Finnish) and are charged in accordance with the payment criteria of the Humppila municipal building supervision authority (available in Finnish).
