Privatization - councils and decisions

All questions connected with privatization of housing require the emergency solution, today if not to manage to register the apartment under the ownership till January 1, 2007, then it is necessary to redeem it from the state already at market value.

After adoption in 1991 of the Law “About Privatization of Housing Stock in the Russian Federation“ at us in the country actively began em - privatization of apartments - primary transaction in housing market which by right is considered as one of the most important procedures for further operations with apartments and rooms (without it it is impossible to sell, exchange, rent, descend or to present housing). And new Housing code of the Russian Federation (01/03 / 2005) cancels free privatization with 01/01 / 2007

of Firm and the intermediaries rendering assistance in privatization help to avoid tiresome collecting documents - from you only the passport and the considerable sum of money will be necessary (from $600 to $1000). That is you overpay for service, besides firms - a something ephemeral can disappear together with your money.

Human factor. Privatization can be issued both on one, and on several people who are constantly registered in the apartment. If you want to refuse the participation in privatization, through the notary or in MZhR issue refusal. It is impossible to refuse privatization in favor of family members - possibly to refuse only participation (so if 4 persons are registered in the apartment and one of them refuses privatization, three participate in process). If during privatization of housing one of residents was absent and did not participate in privatization, this right behind it remains. The housing can be privatized in equal or unequal shares.

Minor children are obliged to participate in privatization of the apartment in which they are registered, in equal or big shares, but not in smaller. The apartment can be privatized on the child even if he is registered in the apartment one. To his majority parents will be engaged in all operations on housing. after death of the owner the person specified in the will can become p>

the Successor of the privatized apartment. If the will is not made, then within 6 months after death of the relative of a share of successors the notary will define. After decision the notary will grant “The certificate on the right for inheritance under the law“ to each successor which has to be registered in Federal registration service subsequently.

the Rent for the privatized apartment does not increase, but the privatized housing is assessed with a tax on cost. Once a year the tax inspections distribute receipts on payment of a tax that is single annual payment and makes about 100 rubles on each owner.

  • the Number of persons interested to privatize the housing increases every day. Privatization takes place in regions quietly, and in Moscow in Departments of municipal housing people get in queues from 4 - 5 o`clock in the morning, and record goes only on the middle of 2006.
  • If your personal presence at paperwork on privatization is impossible for
  • , issue the notarized power of attorney on the person who will collect documents, to sign them and to receive, that is to represent you in relevant authorities.
  • Experts do not exclude
  • that after January 1, 2007 terms of free privatization will be prolonged again. But nevertheless it is short-sighted to postpone privatization of housing as only privatization acts as the reliable guarantor of your property.
