Generally, permanent structures like deliberate houses and commercial buildings are not built on other people’s land. However, when the land is new, and sometimes new technology maps are issued, some of the land boundaries continue to be upside down.
The map taken at the time of land purchase and later in the case of building a house may look different. In some cases, this can lead to stress, while the planned construction of the house may have to be postponed indefinitely.
Article 279 of the Civil Code 2074 has made a legal provision not to build a house on another’s land without consent. The law envisages a situation where both parties can play a role in resolving the issue, subject to certain legal conditions if such a situation arises.
Can take or give at a higher or lower price
No one shall build a house on his own land without the written consent of the owner. If the landlord does not want or cannot afford to buy such a house, he can give approval to the landlord for the purchase.
If the house is not demolished within three months from the date of finding out that the house was built on another’s land or if the house refuses to move or is neglected, the law has made provision for the house to be automatically owned after three months.
If both sides do not agree, it should be demolished
If the landlord refuses to buy the structure built on his land, if his financial situation is not satisfied or if he disagrees for any other reason, the law requires the builder to demolish the house and take his belongings within three months from the date he finds out.
If the landlord disobeys, he will be the landlord
If the house is not demolished within three months from the date of finding out that the house was built on another’s land or if the house is reluctant to move or neglected, the law automatically provides for the house to be owned after three months. Then the legal rights of the landlord are established in the house and the legal rights of the landlord are established and the landlord can use and buy the property as private sole property.
