Systematic work on registration of rights to rooms in such buildings has been carried out since 2012.

The rights to 469 premises in former dormitories were issued during 2021 by 343 Moscow families. They entered into social and short-term employment contracts with the city, as well as purchase and sale agreements, said the Minister of the Government of Moscow, head Department of City Property of the City of Moscow Maxim Gaman.

More than 25.7 thousand families live in 247 former hostels. Systematic work on registration of rights to the occupied rooms in such buildings has been carried out since 2012. Already 86 percent of residents have completed the necessary documents.

“More than 22,000 families have received documents for living space in former dormitories. In 2021, over 1.2 thousand people signed contracts for 469 residential premises with a total area of ​​​​more than 17.5 thousand square meters. Of these, 255 families (1,037 people) signed social tenancy agreements for 366 premises, 57 families (114 people) signed short-term lease agreements for 65 premises, and another 31 families (51 people) bought out 38 premises. This work is ongoing,” he said.

The real estate is located in 120 buildings of all urban districts, except for TiNAO and ZelAO. Most contracts were concluded in the south-east of the capital – 116, the second place was taken by the Central Administrative District – 74, followed by CJSC – 72. In the north-east of the city, documents were drawn up for 67 premises, in the SAO – 40, 33 – in the South-Eastern Administrative District. Thirty contracts each were concluded in the east and south-west of Moscow, and seven in the North-West Administrative District.

About 600 rooms in former dormitories were vacated by tenants who occupied them without legal grounds. Now these premises can be obtained by neighbors under an agreement drawn up with the city. If citizens are registered with housing, this gives them the right to attach a room under a social tenancy agreement, and buy out the rest.

Citizens who occupy living space in former dormitories must have legal grounds for registration of rights to it. First of all, they need an open financial personal account, registration at the place of residence or an order to move in. Then the city concludes a social contract with them, which will enable the privatization of housing in the future.

Representatives of a socially unprotected category of citizens who do not have the necessary documents have the opportunity to conclude a short-term employment contract for one year. There is only one condition: they must not have other housing in Moscow or the Moscow region with an area of ​​​​more than 18 square meters per person. A year later, housing can be provided to beneficiaries under commercial lease agreements or offered to be redeemed at a reduced cost.
