New opportunities for requesting Realty Register information deferred.


Legal Update No. 197

Goltsblat BLP advises that Order No. 507 of the Russian Ministry for Economic Development dated 22 October 2010 defers the new opportunities for requesting information from the Unified State Register of Real Estate Rights and Transactions (the Realty Register), including electronic requests for Realty Register information and payments within one month of the request date, until 1 January 2011. Before the Order was passed, it was expected that these opportunities would become available from 01 November 2010.

In this context, until 1 January 2011, any requests for information from the Realty Register must be filed only in hard copy, in person or by post, attaching the original of the payment document confirming that the fees for furnishing the information have been duly paid.
