Apply for water and sewerage connection
Once the building permit is obtained, the investor may apply for connection approval to the Vodovod-Kanalizacija d.o.o. (hereinafter: the “utility”).The obligatory attachments are:
– the building permit
– proof of ownership of the land
– plan of the plot showing the position of the building on the plot
– project of grid connection to the water and sewage network (it may be prepared by the utility or other company; the costs for the project regarding the connection to the water network amount to 240 EUR and regarding the connection to the sewage network 304 EUR).
The connection approval must be issued free of any charge and in 30 days from the day the application was submitted.
After the connection approval is obtained from the utility, the building (fitting) of the grid connection (external works) may start. The grid connection to the water network is usually made by the utility. The utility examines documentation to make an estimate of costs and time needed and afterwards prepares an offer for making a grid connection to the client. However, another company may be engaged to do external works as well subject to condition that the utility` s approval of such company is obtained previously and subject to condition that a notice on commencement of the works is sent to the utility at least 3 days before beginning of works in order to enable the utility` s supervision. The same applies to a grid connection to the sewage network which is always made by another authorized company under utility` s supervision (the utility itself does not offer such services, i.e. building (fitting) a connection to the sewage network). The cost for connection to the water and sewage network is EUR 9000. The building (fitting) of the gird connection takes additional 30 days.
After the grid connection is built, the utility examines the connection (inspection at the site). The costs of such inspection amount EUR 30 for each grid connection. If connection is in accordance with requirements stated in the connection approval, the building is connected to the network.
For each gird connection a geodetic fixation must be made in order to enter the connection into the cadastre. Such fixation is made by the utility (the costs amount to 224 EUR for each grid connection).
