Commissioner in Moscow Region assisted large family in housing problem solving

In November 2016, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Moscow Region Yekaterina Semyonova received an appeal from resident A. of the urban district Chekhov.

The head of a large family lived for several years with relatives and did not have the opportunity to rent housing. The disabled child suffered from a disease forbidding together living in the same apartment. On the basis of part 2 of Article 57 of the Housing Code of the Russian Federation, A. had the right to an extraordinary provision of housing under a social employment contract.

In 2014, the family was registered as needy for living quarters. After appeals to the local administration, A. received answers that there were no flats in the municipal housing stock.

Employees of the regional Commissioner’s office gave the applicant a reply stating that his family, according to the norms of providing the area of living space under the social contract, established in the municipality, must provide a living space with a total area of 84 square meters, in addition, he has the right to apply to the Chekhov Court with the claim for resettlement out of turn.

But the opportunity to provide citizen A. with an apartment from the municipality was not presented, and in July 2017 the applicant repeatedly appealed to the Ombudsperson. Ekaterina Semenova sent a request to the Chekhov Prosecutor’s Office.

According to the response, Citizen A. was given a three-room apartment with an area of 97.6 square meters. The man expressed his gratitude to the regional Commissioner and the staff of the Office for coordinated and effective work.
