Do you want to quickly find out the prospects for your housing law case? Leave a request for a free prospect analysis:

  1. Call the hotline number
  2. Or write your question to the duty lawyer via online chat
  3. Or leave your question in the form below

As part of a free online consultation, the client receives a superficial analysis of the prospects of the case; answers to questions that do not require deep immersion; step-by-step instructions and action strategy; an explanation of the law and an explanation of your rights. But you must understand that not all issues can be resolved over the phone, and if the case is more complex and requires familiarization with the documents in hand, then to further protect your interests, the lawyer will, at your request, invite you to a personal meeting in the office.

Removing obstacles to using the apartment

If you have ownership rights or are registered in the apartment, but other persons living in the apartment prevent you from living in this apartment, then the only effective way to protect your right is to file an appropriate claim for occupancy. Without such a court decision, the police are inactive and do not actually respond to citizens’ appeals. The task of a lawyer in housing disputes is to prove in court the existence of conflicting relationships, actual obstacles in living, repeated calls to the police, facts of changing locks, as well as what is impossible on your own. The court considers all these circumstances and makes a decision to remove obstacles to the use of residential premises and hand over duplicate keys. The execution of the decision is entrusted to the police and the bailiff service. In case of violation of a court order, residents are fined administratively.

The average time for consideration of housing disputes is about 3 months.

Case resolution experience

In the summer of 2021, the Capital District Court considered a case in which the plaintiff, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, demanded to evict the defendant. In support of the appeal, a representative of the ministry indicated:

  1. The defendant is occupying the property illegally.
  2. This fact was established during the inventory.
  3. Persons occupying housing were not previously registered as needing square meters.
  4. The defendant did not enter into labor relations with the ministry.

The court, having considered the stated circumstances and documentary evidence, satisfied the claim in full. The rationale for the decision was as follows:

  • The occupied housing belongs to the specialized housing stock;
  • The defendant occupies the apartment on the basis of a decision of persons who are not authorized to make it;

In addition, the person does not have an employment relationship with the ministry, has no reason to occupy the premises specified in the claim, and the defendant did not provide evidence to the contrary.

In this case, the legal assistance provided on housing issues would have drawn the plaintiff’s attention to the following three points:

  • It is impossible to evict from official housing without providing other living quarters;
  • This applies to cases where settlement took place legally;
  • The circumstances of the applicant’s settlement do not meet this requirement, and the prospects for winning the case are doubtful.

In the winter of the same year, the Capital District Court considered another case regarding a claim to invalidate an agreement on the alienation of a share in an apartment. In support of the appeal, the plaintiff stated:

  1. The gift agreement was concluded in simple written form.
  2. The money was transferred against receipt of receipt.
  3. The plaintiff did not pay attention to the fact that the gift agreement was executed, and not the sale and purchase.
  4. Before the transaction, the applicant had a right of use, but not ownership of the share.

During the consideration of the case, circumstances were established indicating the intention of the plaintiff and other persons to evade tax obligations. Based on the requirements, it was decided to refuse the applicant completely. The reason is that the court did not establish, and the plaintiff did not prove, the circumstances specified in the claim that confirm his claims.

This is a significant case in which the plaintiff made a number of significant mistakes, both when purchasing a share in an apartment and when selling it. Free help with housing issues online or by phone, in person could help:

  • Protect the applicant from these errors;
  • Draw up alienation agreements in accordance with the requirements of the law and the plaintiff’s intentions;
  • Preserve the person’s financial resources in full;
  • Avoid criminal prosecution by tax authorities.

Instead, the plaintiff relied on his own strength, lacking legal knowledge and special skills. The result is sad; further legal assistance to get out of this situation was ineffective and required significant financial costs.

Peculiarities of resolving disputes with housing cooperatives and homeowners' associations

The quality of utilities and their payment, the procedure for operation and maintenance of a multi-storey building are pressing issues for apartment owners. They are concerned about inflated rates, unreasonable fees, errors in receipts, unnecessary repairs, ignoring their opinions when making decisions, and many other issues. As a result, the owners enter into disputes with the HOA or housing cooperative, which have taken over the management of the property. But the satisfaction of even justified claims depends on:

  • from competence in the field of law;
  • competent and verified approach;
  • presence of business connections;
  • other factors.

The company's independent lawyers meet these criteria. They will find a way out in case of violations of the rules for using the property of the house, damage caused by the management company and in other situations.

How to discharge a person through the court?

The need to deregister (deregister) a person arises in two cases:

  • if you are the owner (for example, you just purchased an apartment), and strangers were registered in it;
  • when you live under a social tenancy agreement and besides you, people are registered in the apartment who do not actually live in it.

Deregistration of unauthorized persons after purchasing an apartment

In the event that you become the owner of an apartment, whether through inheritance, purchase, gift, you have the right to deregister those persons who were previously “registered” there. It is necessary to separate the concepts of registration at the place of residence and ownership. In Russia, the institution of “propiska” no longer exists, and registration at the place of residence is solely a notification to the state of the place of residence. To carry out the “extract” procedure, you will need to independently or, using the services of a lawyer for housing disputes, file a claim with the court at the location of the apartment to remove the citizen from registration, if the citizen does not want to be discharged voluntarily. Despite a common misconception, the new owner has the right to “discharge” minors registered in the apartment in accordance with the general procedure.

Extract from a social rented apartment

If you live in a socially rented apartment, and besides you, there are citizens registered in it who do not actually live there, then you can deregister them through the court.

The law provides the following grounds for deregistration of a citizen:

  • the apartment is in social rent;
  • the person does not pay utility bills;
  • actually resides elsewhere;
  • or grossly violates the rules of conduct and residence.

The main task of a lawyer in housing disputes in this category of cases is to collect evidence that utility bills were actually paid only by you (receipts); the person lives in another place, perhaps owns another residential premises; testimony of witnesses (neighbors) that this person has not appeared at this address for a long time. When the court makes a decision to remove a person from registration, the lawyer sends the decision to the passport office, which executes the court's decision.
