In February 2024, Russians will see a number of innovations in legislation that relate to cadastral errors, land leases, emergency housing and plot boundaries. Lawyers explained how the innovations will work. Details in the material — RBC-Real Estate.
Errors in the Unified State Register of Real Estate
On February 1, 2024, a law comes into force according to which the period for correcting errors in the Unified State Register of Real Estate (USRN) has been reduced from three to one month from the moment the decision on the need for correction is sent to the copyright holder.
Previously, Rosreestr did not have the ability to make changes to information about a land plot if this led to a change in the area of the plot by more than 5%. Now, according to the new law, at the time of correction of the registry error, an increase in the area of the plot is allowed by no more than 10% or a decrease by no more than 5% of the original area.
This will allow you to take into account possible changes in the area of the plot when correcting registry errors and provide more accurate and up-to-date information in the real estate registersays lawyer, head of the Law and Business Designer company Yulia Verkhovtseva.
In addition, according to the innovation, the lists of real estate objects subject to cadastral valuation will be supplemented with new information. They will include information about whether the house is in disrepair and requires demolition or reconstruction, as well as the suitability of the house or apartment for habitation. “These data have a significant impact on the cadastral value of real estate, as well as on the amount of property taxes. If a house is recognized as unsafe, the value of housing in it will be assessed lower, which will lead to a reduction in tax payments. Previously, such information was received from regional authorities, municipalities and other organizations. Now this information will be transferred from the Unified State Register of Real Estate, which will significantly speed up the process and ensure more efficient recording of accidents,” said Verkhovtseva.
From February 1, 2024, changes to the Town Planning Code will come into force, which allow the establishment of boundaries of settlements and territorial zones, even if they intersect with the boundaries of land plots.
Municipalities now have the right to determine the location of the boundaries of settlements that intersect with private lands. In addition, local authorities are no longer required to hold public discussions and hearings when making changes to territorial planning documents that involve changing the boundaries of settlements and eliminating the intersection of locality boundaries with the boundaries of land plots. For local authorities, this means simplifying the procedure for making changes, which will have a better impact on the timing and amount of documentation,” notes Deputy Managing Director of Dom.RF Natalya Romanyuk.
After indexation by 7.5% on February 1, 2024, the amount of maternity capital that citizens most often spend on improving housing conditions will amount to 631 thousand rubles at the birth of the first child, and 833.8 thousand rubles at the birth of the second child. In 2023, a certificate was issued for 586.9 thousand rubles. for the first child and 775.6 thousand rubles. — for the second.
From February 1, 2024, a law comes into force according to which plots with agroforestry plantations, which are state or municipal property, will be leased without holding a tender. The innovation determines the procedure for providing such land plots without bidding:
- an agricultural organization if it carries out agricultural production on an adjacent land plot;
- to a citizen or peasant (farm) enterprise if they carry out the activities of a peasant (farm) enterprise on an adjacent plot of land.
This means that farmers, agrarians, and producers of agricultural products in adjacent areas will be able to obtain them for their activities without going through complex and costly bidding procedures. Such changes in legislation contribute to the development of agriculture and increased efficiency of land use, — explains the head of the company “Constructor of Law and Business”.
