As a source familiar with the situation told Izvestia, usually city authorities in problem regions turn a blind eye to illegal construction, since they receive money from developers — about 10% of the cost of the house.
In the future, the company applies to the court so that it recognizes the object as legitimate on the basis of an examination confirming the safety of the building (compliance with urban planning standards). The local authorities who received the reward are not against it.
For example, 80-90% of all apartment buildings on the coast of the Krasnodar Territory and in large cities of the subject were put into operation by court decision, the interlocutor of the editorial office said.
According to the source of Izvestia, if at some stage the agreement of the developer with the authorities is violated, the house may be recognized as a self-building, subject to demolition. In fact, out of ten unauthorized buildings in the Krasnodar Territory, one or two are eventually recognized as illegal, he said.
The Prosecutor General’s Office is scheduled to consider the problem of unauthorized construction at a meeting of an expert group under the interdepartmental working group on countering crimes in the economic sphere by the end of 2021, the department told Izvestia.
