The construction of your new home is approaching and you are wondering what all is in store for you? You may be wondering what’s going on, because you’ve come across terms like utilitx networks. What is it?
What are they?
Utilities are designed to ensure the supply and drainage of energy, water and gas to the land, they are the basis for the smooth functioning of the building and often play a key role in the purchase of the land.
Who would also buy a plot of land where there are no utilities and connecting them could be a problem? The whole construction would be prolonged by building them. But who doesn’t mind, can buy a plot of land on the so-called green field.
What do utilities include?
When we talk about connection to utilities, we are most often talking about electricity, heat, gas, water and sewage, but this also includes data networks such as telephone and internet, without which we can no longer imagine life.
How much does it cost to connect to the utilities?
Every connection costs something, it is definitely not a cheap affair. Just a project by an authorized engineer costs around 10 000 CZK, but it is only a project. Where is the material, installation and construction work? You can’t do without them when building, so you have no choice but to build everything.
Who pays for the utilities?
You may not be happy about this, but the builder. The gas distributors then offer to buy the connection at the contract price after the start of the supply, the cost of the electricity connection goes to the distributor, the builder pays the cost if it is an undeveloped area and the connection is longer than 50 m.
