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.
