As said the first Deputy Chairman of the Committee on financial markets Igor Divinsky, in 2018, the enterprises of the housing sector has exhibited the Russians account for the amount of 2.63 trillion. The Commission even one percent of this amount to 26 billion But one percent is the average Commission, large banks it sometimes reaches 3%. “A choice to pay or not, the population does not exist”, – said the Deputy. It is especially annoying when the payment of one hundred rubles take forty rubles of the Commission – because it is “minimal”, he explained. That is, we have about 40% of the Commission! Thus, the total amount of fees from the citizens much more than 26 billion rubles, concluded Divinsky.
