Legislative framework of the issue

The new privatization rules are regulated by amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On Privatization of Communal and State Property". At the legal level, the rules were changed and the specifics of privatization were established for the duration of martial law in Ukraine.

There are currently no specific features of the privatization of apartments during martial law. The only exception is real estate in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine.

The transfer of apartments into private ownership is carried out in the presence of all necessary documents.

The main package of documents for privatization consists of:

  1. Applications for privatization.
  2. Copies of the identity document.
  3. Technical passport for the apartment.
  4. References on the composition of the family.
  5. Warrant on provision of living space.

According to Article 8 of the Law "On the Privatization of Communal and State Property", a decision on privatization is made no later than one month after the submission of all necessary documents.

The following are eligible for privatization: citizens of Ukraine who permanently live in apartments or residential premises of dormitories of the state housing fund and/or need improvement of living conditions.
