Where can I place a tiny house?
Basically, a tiny house on wheels is a mobile entity. Depending on the type of trailer, you can even register and insure it as a vehicle. You do not need a permit to park a vehicle or mobile entity.
However, if the tiny house is never moved and it is connected to the water and electricity grid, its mobile character can be questioned. We therefore recommend that you inquire with the urban planning department of the municipality in question what the options are in your specific case: Local regulations of the municipality, purpose of the house (care home, site shed, recreation, ...), term, type land (building land, recreational land, agricultural land, nature reserve, ...) Because there are so many variables, there is unfortunately no unambiguous answer and fixed step-by-step plan.
What about homologation & inspections?
Do you want to be able to move your tiny house on a fast traffic trailer yourself? Then there are a lot of formalities involved (inspection, annual re-inspection, insurance, registration, ...) and obtaining a COP (Confomity Of Product) if the house is not removable.
In order to avoid these formalities and costs, customers usually choose to have their house detachable or have it done by a specialized transport company. the associated price is approximately €50.00 fixed costs + €55.00/h (prices excluding VAT).
