YemiAyinke Good to know you’ve already done your building plan but you can’t take it for approval yet as it will not be approved.
You need a registered survey in your name attached to the plan when filing for building approval. Also the architect needs to draw a site plan and location plan which must be part of your architectural drawings.
Your complete drawings which must be submitted for building plan approval include the following:
- Location Plan
- Site Plan
- Ground Floor Plan
- First Floor Plan (if it’s a storey building)
- The Elevation plan (Front, Right, Left and Rear view of the building)
- Section Plan
- Roof Plan
- Septic Tank details etc.
If the drawing made for you by architect is for approval, it’ll include all the above mentioned. Otherwise, he has to do all the above.
Please note, if you don’t discuss approval with the architect, he might have only charged for a working drawing.
To get your complete drawing, your survey plan must be ready and your name must be written on the plan as shown in the registered survey.
Once you have your complete drawings, you can approach the town planning office in your state to ask for building approval.
What’s the implication of not filing for approval before building your house?
There are too many but I’ll say it’s the right thing to do to have peace of mind when building a house.
