The Housing Code Amendments

24.05.2022

Changes to the Housing Code of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic were considered today in the course of the meeting of the Committee on Regional Policy, Local Self-Government and Housing and Communal Services. They relate to the issues of preserving the right for the families of participants in the hostilities to protect Pridnestrovie to be given priority accommodation.

According to the law-in-draft, it is proposed to grant the right to the families of the deceased participants in the hostilities to protect the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic to remain in the preferential queue for housing from the date of registration of the defender himself. As part of the second reading, the parliamentarian and chairman of the Association of Veterans of the War in Afghanistan Igor Buga introduced his amendments. He proposed extending the norm of the law-in-draft to the families of combatants in Afghanistan from April 1978 to February 15, 1989.

According to the information provided by the state administrations, as of April 1 of this year, more than 50 people are on the preferential lists under the category “combatants in Afghanistan from April 1978 to February 15, 1989”. The Committee on Regional Policy, Local Self-Government and Housing and Public Utilities agreed with this amendment. The document will be submitted for consideration by parliamentarians in the second reading at one of the next plenary sessions.

Another issue also concerns the changes being made to the Housing Code of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. We are talking about a possible reduction in the number of votes of the owners of premises in an apartment building in order to make a decision on the choice of a way to manage the house. There is a requirement in the current wording at least two-thirds of the votes of the total number of residents are required for the decision to be made. They agreed at the meeting of the Committee with the changes: to make a decision on the choice of a way to manage a house, a majority of votes (50% + 1) of the total number of homeowners is needed.
