Presidential Decree 380 of 6 June 2001 – Consolidated Law on Building Laws and Regulations – expressly provides that, if there is no different municipal provision, there is an obligation to submit a technical report illustrating the work to be carried out, together with a scale plan that illustrates the dimensions, the exact location and the respect of the distances from the property of others. If it is a standard prefabricated garage, the advice is to also attach photos that show how the finished work will be. This provision applies both to prefabricated boxes resting on the ground (those made of wood or sheet metal), and above all to those made of reinforced concrete fixed on fixed foundations. Some Municipalities provide for the possibility of carrying out works simply resting on the ground without any permission, while for those in masonry it is always essential to obtain authorization.
In the event that prefabricated garages are built without the necessary municipal authorizations, the person who carried out the work is subject to heavy penalties. To regularize one’s position, it is possible to submit to one’s Municipality an application for a Permit to build in amnesty, with an attached technical report that demonstrates the double conformity of the works carried out. In practice, it is necessary to demonstrate that the prefabricated garages made comply both with the regulations in force and with those in force at the time they were created. Otherwise, the Municipality has the right, in addition to applying a heavy penalty, to request its demolition and restoration to its previous state at the expense of the transgressor. Even if the technical report is able to demonstrate double conformity, the citizen is obliged to pay the penalties provided, without having to remove what has been achieved.
