The discount allowed them to save a total of more than 272 million rubles.
More than 272 million rubles were saved by Muscovites when buying land from the city on which their houses, dachas and personal subsidiary plots are located. In 2021, citizens bought a hundred land plots at a 60 percent discount from the cadastral value. This was reported Maxim Gaman, Minister of the Government of Moscow, Head of the Moscow City Property Department.
Since April 2020, a rule has been in force in Moscow that allows individuals to buy land from the city for individual residential buildings, garages or outbuildings at a reduced price of 40 percent of the cadastral value.
“Only owners of real estate located on land plots with permitted use for individual housing construction, personal subsidiary plots and gardening can use the right of redemption. At the end of 2021, the townspeople bought 100 such plots with a total area of 12.1 hectares in the amount of 181.4 million rubles. At the same time, thanks to the benefit, Muscovites saved 272.1 million rubles,” Maxim Gaman said.
He added that in total, since the entry into force of the benefits, citizens have purchased 138 land plots from the city with a total area of 15.4 hectares for a total amount of 237.1 million rubles. The total savings amounted to 355.7 million rubles.
The head of the City Property Department noted that the territories privatized in 2021 are located in nine districts of the capital. Last year, Muscovites bought the most plots in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky districts: 52 plots with an area of 6.8 hectares and 17 plots with an area of 2.2 hectares, respectively. In third place is the Eastern District: here citizens have purchased nine land plots with an area of one and a half hectares. 22 plots were purchased in other administrative districts of the capital, with the exception of Central, Southern and Zelenograd.
The largest of the purchased plots – an area of 25.12 acres – is located in the village of Burtsevo, Filimonkovsky settlement, Novomoskovsky district of the capital. They paid 3.36 million rubles for it, while saving five million rubles. And the smallest one – with an area of one hundred square meters – is located on Kurkinskoye Highway in the North-Western District. The new owner paid about 220 thousand rubles for it, while saving almost 330 thousand rubles.
In order to conclude a sale and purchase agreement, it is necessary to apply to the Department of City Property of Moscow for the provision of the state service “Providing a land plot to the owners of buildings and structures.” You can apply through the mos.ru portal. The service is free and is provided entirely electronically.
You can calculate the redemption value of the site in advance by reading its cadastral value on the official portal Rosreestr.
