What are the risks installing a toilet and shower in the basement (Canton Vaud)

What are the risks installing a toilet and shower in the basement (Canton Vaud) for a new house we are building ? Does anybody know what the rules and regulations are? Is there a fine to pay ? Do the authorities rally care ? Will we have an issue reselling our house ?

You can have both, what's forbidden is to have living accommodation in the Sous Sol, i.e. a bedroom, however, you are allowed to have a fitness room, hence the need for a toilet and a shower That's what we did and it was no problem.

In fact we are building a fitness room. Are you able to point me to some official document by any chance?

Does your architect not know the rules and regulations for the area?

I'm sure he does, however, is he really going to be on my side or just to make money ? I'm looking for the truth elsewhere for now.

Having a discussion about renovations with friends that live in Kanton Freiburg, putting in another toilet there increases your deemed rental value. You might want to check out that for Vaud.

Risks? Well you could be fined and asked to remove it I would guess. I would also like one, since we have a basement office. To do this propery I need to apply for a permit and this space will be calculated as living area, so I can't already be over my extra utilisation reserve.
