On June 9th, the State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted amendments to the Housing code, providing penalties for management companies for low-quality services and incorrect receipts.
As Construction.ru reported via the press service of the Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, which developed the bill, there will be a payment for all housing needs of an amount to be established by the Federation.
The decision will help tenants to avoid disputes about the amount of charges and honest consumers to avoid paying the "imbalance", the Ministry of Construction predicts. Besides this, the amendments allow for in person and in absentia voting at collective house meetings. Active residents are developing the draft decision, and then it will carried to other residents who sign protocols in absentia. Protocols will receive the status of an official document, and their falsification will be a criminal act.
