Weekly Tip 13 #LocationAustria: Consider regional construction laws

© LISA Vienna Daniel Novotny

Therefore each one of the nine federal regions has its own building regulations. For this reason, it is strongly recommended to hire a regionally experienced architect or builder to draw up the construction permit plans and put his stamp on it. Building Meetings or “Bausprechtage” are held regularly at the regional district administrative office, the “Bezirkshauptmannschaft” (general administrative authority of a political district), which is responsible for the respective municipality. Prospective builders should take advantage of this service together with the construction experts they have hired as a means of simplifying the approval and licensing procedures and thus to have them processed more quickly. 

The purchase of Austrian properties is generally subject to a real estate transfer tax amounting to 3.5% of the consideration involved (e.g. purchase price and debt assumption). In addition, a 1.1% land registration fee calculated on the same assessment base is levied to enter the new owners in the land register.
