Regulations to build in Las Terrenas

The best way to proceed with your property is to first get the design parameters from “TURISMO”, that give you the possibilities of what can you build in that property, and all the regulations that you should follow., this parameters are LAW for 6 months, once we have the parameters  then we can recommend you want can be realizable from and possibilities of this parameters and from a market point of view.
We need the following documents to ask for the design parameters for your property.
A) Catastral plan with gps points ( this is the surveyors plan, that should have gps references.)
B) Copy Title of ownership, if not in your name you have to incorporate also the contract of buying.
C) A letter directed to the director of TURISMO asking in your behalf the design parameters.
D) The “cotas de nivel” (Land levels). with the existing trees.

PROCESO DE UN PERMISO DE CONSTRUCCION

DE UNA OBRA MENOR, (AlREDEDOR DE 200M2)

This is the process to optain a construction licence.

But the amounts taken as example are based on a 200m2 villa.

1) TURISMO (3 meses / 1/2 mes VIP)

Parametros de diseño (DESING PARAMETERS).                                 5.000rd /  10.000rd (fast track)

*) MEDIO AMBIENTE (enviroment)                                       Deposit. 5.000rd / -+ 20.000 rd they calculate the amount based on the proyect.

Un mes a un mes y medio en enviar inspector. Se entrega juego 11”x17”.

Se pide una muestra del agua para analizarla en laboratorio, dan certificado y de ahí se propone una planta de tratamiento. (también lo pide turismo)

They take around one month to two months to send an inspector to the site,that depends of the amount of work they have. Depending of the location of the proyect and the scale they may ask for a study of enviromental impact, which in this case i doubt it since we dont have any lake, Rivers or swaps near.

They ask for a sample of the water,and its analisis. For a small proyect it cost around 3.000 rd to 5.000. I have to ask and explain where its located since they come from Santo Domingo. This part of the procces can be done at the same time that TURISMO.

2) AYUNTAMIENTO  (+- 3 DIAS) (city hall, around 3 days)

A)      imp. uso del suelo 5% costo del solar (5% of the value of the land)

B)    Imp. de Construccion 5 x 1000 (this amount its calculated  based on the materials of the construction.)

DEL ESTUDIO DE VULNERABILIDAD.)

Remember that all the amounts are based on a small project of 200 square meters.

To be able to give you an exact amount, i need to know the value of the property,  second the size of each unit that you plan, 120m2 or more? The number of bedrooms of each unit. All the amounts mention above are on Dominican Money. Exchange rate 1 dollar = 36.5 rd.
