/ Problems of renting in the Polish market
There seems to be some useful points on both sides in the above comments. My personal experience has been:
Bought 30 ara of land next to lakes and forest in April 2007
Foundations for one house had already been build, so building permission established.
Changed planning permission to 13 apartments, this took 3 months.
Formed Limited Company, regon, nip etc, took 1 month.
Instructed architect to design apartments (in Western style) in late November.
Power line too near plot so arranged for removal (one month as owners of surrounding plots had to be notified)
Architect gave me finalised project this weekend ( I made many changes....lol)
Building regulations should take 6-8 weeks.
So, basically, this has taken roughly the same time as projects I have carried out in the UK, approximately one year from buying the land to starting construction, but unlike the UK, there has not been one objection!!!
