The case of a resident of Yekaterinburg, who was moved from a luxury apartment to a one-bedroom apartment because of debts, will be decisive for the courts in such cases. This was reported to RIA Novosti by a lawyer, a specialist in civil law, Maria Yarmush.

Earlier it became known that a resident of Yekaterinburg was moved to a one-room apartment by court, and his two-level apartment was sold at auction for debts of 21.4 million rubles.

Yarmush recalled that there is no case law in Russia. At the same time, judicial practice takes into account the interpretation of laws by other courts, and plaintiffs will be able to refer to the decision of the Ural court.

According to her, now debtors – owners of expensive housing may face a similar procedure.

“It does not violate any constitutional rights of this bankrupt debtor in any way. He will live normally. But the creditors will receive compensation, at least some of the money that this citizen owes them will be reimbursed. And this is correct, ” Yarmush added.
