The owners of non-residential premises of apartment buildings will be obliged to take part in the maintenance of the entire house. Such an initiative was made by a group of deputies of the committee on state regional policy. Shops and other commercial facilities are often located in high-rise buildings on the ground floors or in basements. However, under current law, the owners of these premises are not required to participate in the maintenance of the entire house.
By the way, this problem has been resolved, and the owners of such premises are responsible for maintaining the house along with the rest of the residents in Russia. Changes to the Housing Code were supported by the deputies of the committee and will be recommended to the Supreme Council for adoption in the first reading.
