A building permit is one of the documents required to open a casino or gambling hall in a hotel. It must be received by the owner of the premises where the hotel is located. With this permission, the operator of the land-based gambling business applies for a gambling license.
In order to obtain permission, the owner needs to submit documents of title, a certificate of establishing the hotel category and a technical passport for the premises.
HOW MANY HOTELS WANT TO OBTAIN A PERMIT?
In total, 18 hotels from Kiev, Lvov, Kharkov, Odessa, Vinnitsa, Rovno and Bila Tserkva applied to KRAIL for permission. Only 11 hotels received permits. Three hotels got the paperwork correct only for the second time. These are the capital hotels "Rus", "Tourist" and "Lybid".
WHO HAS BEEN REFUSED IN PERMISSION TO THE PREMISE?
Refusals were received by 10 hotels. But three of them were able to correct the package of documents, and KRAIL reconsidered its decision.
The luxury hotels in the capital have not received approval: Fairmont Grand Hotel, Hotel Premier Palace and InterContinental. The reason for the refusal to the Fairmont hotel in the incorrectly executed documents - the title deeds for the property were not submitted and the technical passport was incorrectly executed. The Premier Palace Hotel has expired its 5-star certification and its technical passport has been incorrectly issued. The InterContinental hotel has the same problem - KRAIL was unable to establish the dimensions of the premises according to the submitted technical passport.
The capital hotels "Verkhovyna" and "Bratislava" also received a refusal on permission for the premises. The owners of "Bratislava" did not submit a title deed for the premises, and in the technical passport the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling did not see the premises necessary for gambling. The hotel "Verkhovyna" also has a problem with the technical passport of the premises.
"Intourist" hotel in Zaporozhye did not submit a certified technical passport of the premises for consideration. KRAIL refused to consider the application for the hotel.
Lviv “Premier Hotel Dnister” incorrectly certified the technical passport and submitted documents without the words “according to the original”. And also did not submit documents on establishing the star rating to the hotel. The commission refused to issue a permit for the premises.
