Building permit procedures bring many legal concepts into play. From the rules of administrative procedure to environmental law, through to building standards and the provisions of the law on demolitions, conversions and renovations of residential houses (LDTR), the entire administrative law of construction is likely to be applied within the framework of a building permit procedure.

Here are some examples of cases in which we have advised and represented clients:

  • Action on behalf of an owner in a villa area against a major densification project on the neighbouring plot.
  • Defending promoters following appeals by neighbours against a permit to build a housing project as a grouped settlement in a villa area.
  • Appealing against a decision regarding a change of assignment.
  • Appealing against a permit to raise an office building.
  • Appealing against a permit to build an installation in an industrial area.
  • Assisting an owner in order to obtain a permit to develop the attic of a building, then defending his interests following the appeal against the building permit.
  • Assisting an owner in order to obtain a permit to build a villa in an area subjected to noise from aircraft.
  • Appealing against the inventory of a house and against the refusal of a demolition permit.
  • Appealing against the rejection of a permit to extend a villa in an agricultural zone.
