The certificate of ownership of the apartment is a very important supporting document. If it so happens that you have lost it, there is no need to despair, it can be restored. To do this, you need to contact the Federal Registration Service (FRS), where you will be given a new one to replace the lost one.
It is necessary
- sale and purchase agreement (exchange, donation)
- receipt of payment of the state fee
If you need to restore the certificate of ownership of an apartment you own, then you need to go to the territorial department of the Federal Registration Service. Write an application for the restoration of ownership of the apartment, indicate when and how you lost this certificate. Do not forget to take your passport and the contract of sale (donation, exchange) with you. You will also need to pay a state fee.
After a while (usually it takes no more than a month), you will receive an extract from the Unified State Register of Rights (if the certificate was received after February 1, 1998), then you will be given a duplicate of the apartment ownership certificate to replace the lost one. The duplicate reproduces the text of the lost original in full. At the top of the text, a note is made "Replace the lost", and at the bottom it is certified with a certification inscription, which contains important information: the reasons and date of issue, information about the applicant, etc. The duplicate must indicate the date of issue and the number of the lost document.
In a situation where a certificate of common shared ownership is lost, then it is necessary for all owners to contact the local department of the registration service with applications and passports. The restoration procedure is the same as for sole ownership of an apartment.
In case of loss or theft of the certificate of ownership of the apartment and other documents of title, you definitely need to take precautions: contact the internal affairs bodies and the local department of the unified registration service with a statement about the loss of the document. Also come to the courts with a statement indicating the prohibition to make any transactions with your property. Be careful, the lost documents can be used by intruders for their own ends.
