Prior to buying a real estate property on the primary housing market in Kyiv, one should check the legality of construction of the house on the website of state city administration, a press service of Kyiv City State Administration quotes Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko as saying.
"As soon as we learn about the launch of the illegal construction, we go for that place and halt the building works. However, a lot of 'speculators', who attempt to build the houses without any permissions, works on the building market of Kyiv. That's why I appeal to all Kyiv citizens: prior to buy the real estate property, a buyer should obligatory verify the legality of building of the house on the website of the city administration not to fall into hands of swindlers," Klitschko said.
The mayor stressed that in the cases when the illegal house has already been built and people already have been living there, the authorities are looking for a compromise how to put it into operation, and how to make the owners not to lose it since the budget has no means to compensate a cost of the illegally built house the owners of the houses.
