A quarter of non-privatized housing remains in Kazan
(KZN.RU, October 18, Ekaterina Andreeva). Today in the Tatarstan capital 77% of dwellings have been privatized that earlier have been in the municipal ownership of Kazan. All residents living in conditions of social rent will have the opportunity to realize the right of privatization due to the fact that the deadline for privatization extended until 2013. Albert Zinurov, the director of the MUP "Directorate of municipal housing programs" said about it on today's Business Monday in the Executive Committee of Kazan.
Free housing privatization began in the Russian Federation in July 1991. The process lasts for more than 19 years, or exactly 7,045 days. At the same time the privatization prolongates not the first time. Original the date of privatization was appointed in January 2007 but then the term privatization was extended to March 1, 2010. In late 2009 there was once again an increase in the number of citizens who had applied for privatization, then talking about a possible extension of the term appeared and in mid-January; it was finally decided that the privatization would be completed in 2013.
"If you look at the situation in the regions of the Volga Federal District (VFD) it may be noted that in the Komi-Perm Autonomous District merged in the Perm region, 60% of housing remains non-privatized, in the Kirov region is 49%, in the Chuvash Republic is 40% in the Samara region is 25% , about 37% remains unprivatized housing in the Republic of Tatarstan, 23% is in Kazan”, A. Zinurov said, “the rest of the VFD the figure varies between 20-30%".
Today in Kazan in the "Privatization of housing" database the number of privatized dwellings is 251,772; over 15,800 of which have been privatized over the last year that is about 6% of the privatized housing stock.
Since July 2009 the functions of coordination and control of the privatization process of housing on the territory of Kazan assigned to MUE “Directorate of Municipal Housing Programs”. For this year 15,870 applications from citizens for registration of the privatization contracts have been accepted. 15,844 of privatization contracts have been registered, 13,324 of which have passed the state registration of property rights.
According to A. Zinurov increasing the number of citizens who want to privatize their dwelling fell at 2006 and 2009 years on those dates which preceded the announced dates of the end of the privatization. "Most people cannot decide on the privatization or leave the decision on the last day under the Old Russian tradition", Albert Zinurov said.
"Waiting for a significant increase in citizens’ complaints on the issue of privatization by the end of 2009, employees of the company have been transferred to a six-day workweek”, A. Zinurov stressed, “only in December 2009 2,737 applications were filled (17% of annual volume).
The next peak is expected by the end of 2012”.
According to A. Zinurova there are several problems in preparing the documents that are necessary for privatization. This unauthorized conversion and redevelopment of tenants occupied dwellings on the conditions of social rent, the lack of dwelling planned for the privatization in the registry of municipal property of Kazan, as well as the inconsistency during the inventory of dwellings.
To solve these problems in the past year regulations on the organization of the paperwork for the transfer of dwellings in the ownership of citizens has been developed, cooperation between the organizations that is participants of privatization process in Kazan, including city and federal agencies.
In order to implement of the "single window" principle during the privatization of dwellings, the MUE “Directorate of Municipal Housing Programs” has concluded a contract with RGUP" ICE" on the production of technical and cadastral documentation upon the request of the citizens (6328 requests have been adopted). "We also reached agreement with the Rosreestr Office of RT to reduce the term of the state registration of a primary law of municipal property for Kazan to 5 days", A. Zinurov said.
He also noted that in the preparation of technical documentation often reveals an address discrepancy information on street names and houses numbers according to the technical inventory and data authorities contained in the list of municipal premises. A. Zinurov gave an example when one street has 4 different names: the Yamasheva Prospect, the Husain Yamasheva Prospect, the Husain Yamasheva Street and the Yamasheva Street.
"Diractorate of Municipal Housing Programs” has prepared a draft decree " On the correspondence used in the inventory of dwelling, names and locations of houses being in the municipal property of Kazan specified in the resolution of the Chief Executive Committee of Kazan from 30.05.2007 № 1030 ". According to A. Zinurova the lack of a number of dwellings in this list leads to the prolonging the time required to process documents for privatization.
To accelerate the time for registration, according to A. Zinurova, will conduct a large-scale inventory of the municipal housing fund and creating on its basis the treasury of the municipal dwellings.
