Overcoming the complexity of public building law

In Germany, public building law is part of what is known as special administrative law. It is so complex because, as a legal layperson, to get a basic understanding you would first have to work your way through the Building Code (BauGB), the Building Use Ordinance (BauNVO), the Real Estate Valuation Ordinance and the Plan Sign Ordinance as well as the State building regulations, which essentially regulate building law.

Basics of public and private building law

In Germany, public building law is divided into building planning law and building regulations law.

Building regulations are a matter for the Federal States, in our case that of the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein.

It regulates the technical requirements for structural systems and deals with the dangers that arise from them.
Conflicts that can affect public building law are often related to requirements and building permits or the lack of them.
