Building permit fees in Tehran rise by 30 percent

Financial Tribune – Besides building permit fees, real-estate developers say overall costs of construction are expected to increase on the back of strong growth in the prices of construction materials and land

Building permit fees in Tehran have increased by 30% as of June 21 compared with last year.

The decision was approved by Tehran City Council in the final month of last year (Feb. 20-March 19) as per Tehran Municipality’s 2020-21 budget but was not enforced until now due to the coronavirus-related suspensions of housing projects.

Building permit fees depend on the floor area, scope of work and the type of building being constructed or altered. They form part of the overall costs incurred during the development of a built asset.
