May 4th. FINMARKET.RU – Apartments will be allowed to be transferred to residential premises, according to a bill submitted to the State Duma on the status of apartments. According to the document, it is proposed to introduce the concept of “multifunctional” building into the Urban Planning Code, in which there can be both residential and non-residential premises, separated from each other. Non-residential premises that meet the “established requirements” can be converted to residential. Provided that all premises on the same staircase become residential, and users of non-residential premises have limited access to them.
