Shed building

Having my house built by private builders and not buying from developers or agents, do I need permission to have a shed built on private land, that is NOT connecting to the building its self? Using it for an hobby

Hi Andrew, legally, the general answer is yes. it does not matter who built your house for you, if you are going to add extentions /alterations on your property which actually changes the original permit/plans etc, then the law states that you need to get a permit first and update the title deeds. (That is if you ever plan on selling the house.) the specific question can only be answered after reviewing your title deeds etc. Hope this helps. Poly

Many thanks for your reply Xania, but I think i haven't explained fully. It it not and extension to the building and any form of attachment/alterations, this I understand. But merely a small shed to keep some carpentry tools and do some  small work in it. Such as fix broken items or some small projects. It is about 2 mtres away from the building, on a concrete black away does this help? Thank you

Hi Xenia, I forgot to mention that I think it's call 'A Baraka' in Greek. Thanks

I'm a home inspector and I've seen nightmare scenarios with private builders and sheds.  It's not a typical part of my inspection but I look.
