In the first months of 2024, citizens entered into three thousand housing privatization agreements with the city. In total, since 2019, Muscovites have privatized almost 60 thousand apartments. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov.

“Since the beginning of 2019, citizens have concluded about 60 thousand agreements for the privatization of apartments. At the same time, in 2022 and 2023, Muscovites registered the most premises as their property – 13 thousand each. Another three thousand in the first quarter of this year. Only citizens who occupy it under a social tenancy agreement can privatize housing. This will allow them to freely dispose of property: sell, donate, bequeath or leave as collateral,” said Vladimir Efimov.

Apartment owners can also enjoy other rights that tenants do not have, for example, registering common shared ownership of non-residential premises in an apartment building and the land plot underneath it.

According to federal law, since February 2017, free privatization of housing has become unlimited.

“Today there are 256 thousand non-privatized apartments left in Moscow. This is about five percent of the total size of the capital’s housing stock, which has about 5.4 million premises. You can submit documents for privatization in person at the “My Documents” centers or on the portal using

relevant public service“- noted the Minister of the Moscow Government, Head of the Department of City Property Maxim Gaman.

Muscovites will be able to choose the method of concluding an agreement – paper or electronic. In the first case, they will need to contact the My Documents office. In the second, a draft agreement will be sent to your personal account on the portal, which must be endorsed with a digital signature.
