Privatization of Apartments, Attics and Cellars
Privatization is a free transfer of state property to individuals. Having privatized the premises, you become its rightful owner. Should an apartment was not privatized it cannot be sold, gifted, exchanged, etc. As the market value of real estate in Odessa increased recently, it became essential to privatize utility spaces of a building (attic, cellar, etc.) of which there are many in Odessa. For example, an attic can be upgraded to a mansard, which is cheaper than to buy new floor area.
Peculiarities of the privatization process in UkraineAny apartment in Ukraine can be privatized based upon each citizen’s right to register the state housing he lives in private ownership. Many apartment occupiers have already re-registered the housing documents, and Odessa keeps apace with other cities.
Since 2013 the housing (apartment or house) is registered in accordance with new rules. Now the certificate of title is to be registered not with the municipal technical inventory bureau but with the State Registration Service (10a, Staritskogo St., Odessa).
Privatization of attics and cellarsThough privatization of private housing is more or less regulated by the state, privatization of an attic and cellars is accompanied with bureaucracy because of the absence of the legally established procedure. If a house is an architectural monument, any repair works can be made in cooperation with an architect.
Buyout of an attic from the municipal ownership in Odessa is rather complicated and necessitates getting consent of the neighbours. This is o because the housing owners in multi-floor buildings are co-owners of the auxiliary spaces of the building which are transferred to tenants of all the building.
Similarly, if an apartment whereto an auxiliary space is to be attached has not been privatized, its owner should, first, register commissioning of the space to be privatized. Here you cannot do without assistance and advice of experts.
