How to Convert Residential Plot to Commercial in Pakistan

There are many who have residential property that they are not using for residential purposes. This is the property they want to convert into a commercial property. However, they don’t know how. Are you also among those who want to convert residential plots or property to commercial but are unable to do so because of a lack of knowledge?

Well, in this blog you will learn how to commercialize the property. The details are:

Legal Conversion

One of the most important things that people need to recognize before converting residential plots into commercial is whether they are even allowed to perform such conversions. For instance, such conversions are a headache when you are living in a residential community. Because these sorts of societies do not allow such conversions. Such as in case you are living in DHA or lahore smart city, then it is not possible for you to convert your residential accommodation into a commercial one. Thus, the most important thing is to do a market analysis in these matters.

Permissions from Commercial Districts

Next thing, you cannot just wake up one day and decide that you are transforming your residential project into a commercial one. Residential accommodations are regulated by residential authorities and commercial buildings are regulated by commercial management. These districts are what authorizes the construction and regulation of commercial buildings in these scenarios. Therefore you might have to visit these offices before trying to convert your residential building into a commercial one.

Permits from Various Authoritative Management

This one is a given. When you are on the road to changing your residential property into a commercial one, you need to get permission from relevant authorities. Because the rules and regulations of commercial properties have changed from the residential ones and thus it is important to get an NOC from those people.


As we have stated before the prospects of commercial properties are different from residential accommodations, thus you need to initiate an advertisement in the local press. In case the public shows reluctance then there is no need for you to move forward with the project’s conversion.

Fee/ Paperwork

After the completion of the aforementioned steps, now you are stepping into the final zone of property transformation. If you are in for a long ride or your project has received the green light then you can commence with the next steps. You might have to pay a substantial amount of money for either a permanent or annual commercialization.

The Bottom Line!

These are the processes that are required to transform your residential property into a commercial one. Therefore if you are looking to properly convert your property then you need to abide by these rules and regulations.
