Moscow Region – Payment Introduced To Change Land Plot Permitted Use For Construction/Reconstruction Purposes
Legal Update No. 442, 12 December 2013
Goltsblat BLP advises that
Federal Law No. 327-FZ of 2 December 2013 has been adopted “On Amendments to
Articles 9 and 10 of the Federal Law “On Agricultural Land Transactions” and
Article 22 of the Federal Law “On Regulatory Specifics with Respect to Certain
Relations Resulting from Absorption of Territories into the Constituent Entity
of the Russian Federation, i.e., the Federal City of Moscow, and on Amendments
to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation””.
Similarly to the case in
Moscow, it will be possible to change the permitted use of a land plot owned by
a legal entity or an individual in the Moscow Region to one permitting
construction and/or reconstruction of a capital structure subject to a relevant
payment. The procedure and terms for making such a payment should be established
by Moscow Region law. The legislation may also provide for certain cases when no
payment is charged.
The Laws will come into effect
on 13 December 2013.
