Can a fence be installed in the yard of a terraced house?

The hot summer heat makes more and more people dream of a refreshing lawn in their own yard - also in the yard of terraced houses. Before starting to realize your dreams of a roof, it is good to read what you need to consider when installing a roof in a terraced house.

 Palju to a terraced house - Start by requesting permission from the housing association 

Installing balju in terraced houses is not quite as simple as in the yard of a single-family house or cottage, but it is not impossible.

Start planning by finding out who the yard legally belongs to. Although the yards of terraced houses are freely available to the shareholder, they are mostly owned by the housing association. Consequently, the company's board of directors also decides on major changes to be made to the yard - which is also what the installation of the fence is considered to be. Sometimes the yard may be owned by the partner, but even then you cannot install the fence yourself, you must ask the housing company for permission. Permission is requested by filing a modification work notice, which should be done well in advance of the purchase of the building. It may take time to approve the permit, but there is no need to rush into it and set out to install the roof on your own, because the Housing Company also has the right to demand the demolition of the roof if the permit is not forthcoming.

What factors affect the permit decision?

Since installing a roof in a terraced house is not exactly simple, it is good to state as precisely as possible in the change job notice, e.g. where have you thought about installing the sump, how have you thought about managing the emptying of the sump safely and where, for example, the heating stove will be placed. The more detailed advance information you provide, the faster the application will usually be processed.

The housing company's water payment policy can in some cases affect the permit decision. If apartment-specific water meters are used, water consumption is paid according to your own use. If, on the other hand, a fixed monthly water fee is used in the company, water consumption will increase jointly for the entire company, and increased water consumption can increase everyone's water fees. This may cause irritation in the neighbors and may lead to the refusal of the permit.

In its decision-making, the board usually considers whether the building causes harm or risks to buildings or neighbors. Since all shareholders must be treated equally, the company will probably also think about how more people in the townhouse area will affect the general comfort. When all the disadvantages and benefits have been weighed, the company either accepts or rejects the change job announcement.

What type of tree is suitable for the yard of a terraced house?

Once permission has been obtained from the board of the housing company to install a fence, you should think about what kind of fence is best suited for that particular yard. The size of the fence to be installed in the yard of a terraced house largely depends on the size of the yard. In the hot tubs of Hyvän Kaupan Paika there are several different sizes to choose from. The most popular pool sizes are hot tubs for 6–8 people and 8–10 people. Please also remember to reserve enough space around the heating stove: the heating stove should be placed 3 meters away from house structures or other flammable materials in accordance with the safety distance of fire safety regulations.

Emptying the lawn in a terraced house

In a terraced house, you cannot drain the drain directly by pouring water into the ground. About 1500–2000 liters of water go into the pool, depending on the size of the pool. Such a large amount of water can cause damage to the surrounding buildings or the neighbor's yard. In a terraced house, the water must be directed to the waste water drain with a hose. Emptying the pile should therefore be thought about already when considering the pile, when thinking about the place and many foundations while doing.
