Is the Privatization of Dwelling in a Dormitory Possible?
Today certain categories of residents of dormitories are denied the opportunity to realize the right to housing guaranteed by Art. 58 of the Constitution of Ukraine. The reason is existing deficiencies in the legislation of Ukraine.
In particular, the dormitory of 60th years belongs to one of the higher educational institutions of Ukraine on the right of economic management. The residents received negative responses, affirmed with the controversial provisions of the Law of Ukraine “On ensuring realization of housing rights of residents of dormitories“, which excludes from the scope of this law dormitories belonging to the higher education institutions, on their numerous requests to transfer the dormitory from the balance of the ministry to the balance of local authority.
Advice Group lawyers with the support of the Legislative Bureau deputy of Ukraine Vladimir Parasiuk, joined the development of a bill on amending the Law of Ukraine “On ensuring realization of housing rights of residents of dormitories” (to expand the scope of the Act). The bill is intended to enable the implementation of the privatization of rooms in dormitories separate categories in which residents legally live for more than five years.
Currently, the bill is under scientific examination in one of the departments in Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. In the nearest future the bill will be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for registration.
