SUROWY DOM IN POLAND - UNFINISHED HOMES FOR SALE - COST TO COMPLETE THE BUILD?

I see tons of Dom "Surowy" or "Deweloperski" stan - basically brick walls and a roof popped on

There is one I want to buy which is very big - about 400m2 - and I'm wondering what the general cost to finish this will be? 200,000 zlotych enough? The windows alone I am thinking will cost 100,000 zlotych because it has so many!

Anybody here with experience buying and completing an unfinished home?

Do I need any building permits to complete? Any inspections along the road now?

Also - home has been empty for 10+ years - do I need any formal inspection to re-start the project?

No, but we built one, so I know that from the 'raw' state there's still an awful lot to do.
400 m is huge. I'd say you'd need at least 350k to finish it to a reasonable standard. (I don't envy you your fuel bills in a five month Polish heating season)

Do I need any building permits to complete? Any inspections along the road now?

The builder will already have obtained permission, but you still need a building manager to inspect and sign off each step, e.g. utilities installations, stairs, fireplaces. He/she will usually charge you each time a step is completed.

I don't know the answer to that, but if I were you, I'd get a building manager to do a thorough inspection before you buy.

Our little house (just over 100m) cost about 250K, most of which was spend after the walls and roof were up.

Out of curiosity, how much does it cost you to heat your house?

I'm contemplating buying one, but my heating bills at the minute are ridiculously low due to living in a 1980's block full of 50somethings that live with the heating permanently on. I don't even need to touch the heating until it's below -15c because of them :)

We have two chimneys: one for a fire to heat water and the radiators, and one for a fireplace in the living room. It's not actually necessary to use the latter, but we wanted it because it's beautiful. Anyway, a few days ago we had wood delivered for next winter. We bought 3m2 of pine and 1m2 of alder. Ideally, I'd buy birch but we bought what was available. The four metres cost 500 PLN. We use that wood in combination with coal, of which we burn 2.5 tonnes in a hard winter, say 1500PLN. That fuel also keeps us in hot water over the summer months.

Our house is quite small, and also very well insulated. We put 15cm polystyrene all round, and it really makes a difference.

Sorry, that should be m3.

From my experience I would suggest anything from 500k-800k depending on your finishes. not including sanitary ware or kitchens.
Our place is about 475m2 of livable area and the cost was substantially more but we did choose quality fixtures.
As for the heating-we have a gas boiler and a solid fuel system so can use either or both together. As we dont actually live there permanently we just have the gas boiler running to keep the property at 19C- 24/7. Our predicted cost for gas is about what we thought, 15,000PLN per year.

I would guess that you would.
You might find that the building log book has expired - or that various permissions have expired.

I would be rather careful until the local gmina office was happy - in writing.
