Sergey Vadimovich, who controls the timely execution of works on capital repairs?

Sergei Stepashin: Regional Fund for major repairs. And to exclude a situation similar to the one described, it is necessary that representatives of the State housing Inspectorate of the region and the municipality regularly monitor the total housing stock. In fact, such surveys should take action rapid response.

In the case that the owners understand that living in a block of flats life-threatening, they should contact their municipality with a request to recognize their house alarm. Within 30 business days of the relevant decision of the interdepartmental Commission considered the request of the homeowners, a survey of the building and decides whether a house alarm.

In the Khabarovsk also recently collapsed house, which the mayor’s office has repeatedly recognized the subject of reconstruction. Fortunately, no one was hurt. How to deal with such stubbornness of the local authorities? Maybe it was time to change the rules of the assessment of accidents of buildings?

Sergei Stepashin: first of all, you need to deal with the question: why the houses were suitable for reconstruction. Perhaps these buildings are cultural heritage. We’ll figure it out.

regarding the procedure for the assessment of accidents of buildings, I want to draw your attention to the fact that in 2019 at the initiative of the housing Fund was developed by the rulebook “residential Buildings. Rules for the assessment of emergency and limited-serviceable condition.” It is valid from June 25, 2020.

And now, for example, the assessment of apartment buildings up to five floors is on visually observable defects of foundations, bearing walls, ceilings and other building constructions. The survey is conducted prior to the first discovered defect, which meets any criterion of accidents.

Thus, the evaluation procedure was significantly less time consuming, and therefore more available for citizens and municipalities. The cost of the survey is expected to decline about seven times.
