Salvini launches the “building peace”, an amnesty that concerns 80% of houses

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport is preparing a package of rules to intervene on housing, as requested and hoped for by local administrations, associations and bodies in the construction sector. This is a sort of “building peace” desired by Minister Salvini, a sort of amnesty that has been talked about for some time.

The ministry announced this in a note, explaining that it is a series of measures that aim to regularize small discrepancies or structural irregularities which, according to a study by the National Council of Engineers, affect almost 80% of Italian real estate. .

The norm, who can benefit from it

There are three areas that fall within the new legislation, as written in the MIT note:

– discrepancies of a formal nature, linked to the interpretative uncertainties of the current regulations;

– “internal” building discrepancies, concerning individual real estate units, to which the owners have made slight modifications (partitions, mezzanines, etc.);

– discrepancies that could be remedied at the time the intervention was carried out, but cannot be remedied today due to the “double compliant” regulation which does not allow obtaining permission or reporting in amnesty for many interventions dating back over time. And also to allow changes in the intended use of properties between homogeneous categories.

These guidelines – explains the ministry – on which the offices have moved, also following the proposals collected in previous meetings on the topic, and which led to the draft legislation, were presented during the meeting on the housing plan, held at Mit in the presence of the deputy prime minister and minister Matteo Salvini with the Dipe (department for the planning and coordination of economic policy) and around 50 institutions, bodies, associations, professional associations and foundations in the sector. The rationale – it is explained – is to protect small property owners who in many cases have been waiting for decades for their positions to be regularized and who are often unable to renovate or sell their home. At the same time deflate the work of the municipal technical offices, often overwhelmed by requests for amnesties. In light of administrative simplification and efficiency, it is also planned to intervene on administrative procedures to guarantee citizens certain answers in certain times.
