complicated procedure

Of Housing Code implies that redevelopment to improve the accomplishment of the apartment can be carried out with the consent of the owner, the adult members of his family and the local administration.If all households agree, it's time to go for approval to the district administration.Here, getting your application will require to produce documents proving ownership of the apartment, and the log, after which you will be given permission to develop the project.Then you can go to the project organization, or an architect who will develop a project of your redevelopment.Do not forget to check they have a license!The finished project should be coordinated with the chief architect of the district, as well as the fire service and the SES.Once in the district administration you will be given permission to start work should be agreed repairs and alterations to dwelling with your favorite ZhEKom.Written consent of the neighbors does not hurt.

When the repair is complete
, invites the Commission from the Department of Housing and communal services executive committee, which will take into operation update your apartment and give the act.And only on this basis, finally, BTI can make all the changes in the log of your apartment.

Faced with these numerous instances, and, worse, bureaucratic delays and bribery in this area, many homeowners decide to change his residence without any permits and approvals, having decided that "when need be, I will do."However, to do this then still more complicated and expensive.And when it comes to the sale or loan bail, often the owners are forced ... to rebuild all over again, returning the original appearance of the apartment!In this case, it should be legal also because, you see, is not very pleasant to live and realize that your neighbor is removed from the bottom bearing partition ...
