The intention is to implement full and cheap legalization of illegal buildings, but about 10 percent of them will have to be removed, because they cannot be legalized., said the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić. He said that legalization is being prepared and that it remains to be seen how the state will try to solve that problem once and for all. He added that he has a lot of difficulties and that he is in in the previous five years, only about 250,000 buildings were legalized. Of the 2.5 million illegal buildings in Serbia, the largest part will be legalized.

– We want full and cheap legalization, for people to pay property taxes, we do not need one-time and fast income, we do not want it to be a source of corruption for local officials. We want to have registered facilities and for the price of those facilities to jump and for their owners to benefit. However, there are 10 percent of buildings that cannot be legalized and will have to be removed – said Vučić.
Tomislav Momirović, Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, also said that the state will make the legalization of buildings as easy as possible for those citizens who solved the housing issue in that way. He emphasized that those who illegally built facilities for personal gain will not be able to legalize the facilities.
– Since the law on legalization was passed in 2015, we have managed to legalize about 25 percent of buildings until today, which is far from enough – said Momirović, and added that the projected deadline is when we have to finish everything in 2023.
As Momirović says, so far, legalization has been slow, because every procedure that is not simple demotivates citizens. According to him, 90 percent of the 1.9 million buildings awaiting legalization belong to citizens who built illegally due to the social issue.
