Renovation in an apartment often involves redevelopment of premises, which is a change in their configuration. Often, such changes are made arbitrarily, without taking into account the technical features of the building and without appropriate approval from the regulatory authorities. In order to avoid difficulties in the future, the redevelopment of the apartment should be properly executed.
It is advisable to carry out the redevelopment of an apartment for several reasons. Most of the difficulties arise when the owner of a home that has undergone changes decides to sell it. If a potential buyer intends to make a purchase through a mortgage in a bank, then illegal redevelopment will certainly become a stumbling block. The lack of proper execution of the changes introduced increases banking risks, therefore, the client will most likely be denied a mortgage loan. In this case, both your interests and the interests of the buyer will suffer.
But even in the absence of a situation with a mortgage, the sale of an apartment will require drawing up a package of documents for housing, which includes a technical passport for an apartment. The authorities in charge of the inventory of housing, with a mandatory survey of the property, will certainly note the fact of illegal redevelopment, which may threaten you with a fine and an order to eliminate unauthorized changes or, if possible, to legalize them. And this will take time and nerves.
Periodically, city services conduct scheduled inspections of the condition of residential premises. Such control in the event of detection of technological violations will also lead to the emergence of responsibility for redevelopment, which is not properly formalized. Therefore, it is advisable to legitimize constructive changes in advance, without bringing the situation to a conflict with the supervisory authorities.
The long-awaited renovation of engineering networks will also bring a lot of disappointment to apartment owners who did not bother to arrange redevelopment. In the best case, your home will remain outside the repair plans of housing organizations, in the worst case, lawsuits against you may follow for violation of the rules for the operation of residential premises. Especially a lot of troubles will arise if, through your fault, an accident occurs in one of the engineering networks, causing property damage to other residents. Competent and timely execution of the apartment redevelopment will reduce the risk of conflicts and litigation.
The above arguments indicate that not only the peace of mind of its owners, but also their family budget, depends on the correct and timely documentation for making constructive changes to the apartment.
