Report on construction work – households
A report on construction work must be submitted for all work that requires a building permit. There is no minimum euro threshold for reporting. You must report even minor work if it requires a building permit.
Find out if a building permit is needed for the work
A report on construction work must be submitted for all work that requires a building permit. Work subject to action permits or demolition permits does not need to be reported. For more information on work that requires a building permit, contact your municipality.
Submit a report on construction work
Save all contracts and invoices you have paid. You need them for submitting your report.
Submit the report at least two weeks earlier, so that you will receive a certificate of the information you have filed in time for the move-in inspection or final inspection.
The move-in inspection can also be called a commissioning inspection.
Please note: For the move-in inspection you need to submit all information on invoices you have paid up until that moment. For the final inspection you need report the information that you did not yet submit for the move-in inspection.
If you are in the role of the customer together with someone else – your spouse, for example – it is sufficient to file just one report.
You can save the form as unfinished and continue working on it later. You can access saved and submitted forms in My e-Services (lomake.fi). The details are stored in the service for 12 months.
You can also submit the report on a printed paper form.
Show the certificate to the building inspector
When you have reported your information we will send you a certificate by post. Show the certificate to the building inspector during the move-in and final inspections.
The certificate is valid for three months. You can use a valid certficate for many inspections, if there is no new information to be reported in between them.
