In the special edition "Construction and Public Procurement" of our newsletter, we inform you about building and commercial restrictions by civil law and about the legal requirements for the removal of unlawful constructions outside of building zones.
By means of easements, landowners can enter into agreements under private law and thus create regulations on the architectural design or use of a property. These building and commercial restrictions can result in buildings and uses on a building land that are permitted under public law but inadmissible under civil law. The consequences of such easements and the solutions provided by civil law and public construction and planning law are discussed in our newsletter.
Buildings outside the building zones are generally excluded and only possible under strict conditions. Nevertheless, buildings that have not been legally approved can still be found in non-building zones. The elimination of this unlawful condition is the responsibility of the municipal building authorities. In our newsletter we inform you how to proceed in this regard and which important aspects have to be considered.
We are happy to advise private individuals, municipalities and authorities on all aspects in this regard, both at the cantonal and municipal level.
