The rules of renting apartments developed by the government are beneficial only to the state. Most likely, neither tenants nor landlords will comply with them. "Today, over 90 percent of housing is in shadow. For landlords this is nonsense. First, they will have to pay taxes, report to the tax inspectorate. In addition, under the law on real estate tax, when the apartment is rented, all the benefits for the owner of the housing are removed.
That is, a person will pay, in addition to the tax on renting an apartment, also a real estate tax, "said Sergey Kostetsky, an analyst with the SV Development consulting company, writes The Observer.
The expert stressed the lack of benefits for tenants.
"Everyone understands that any costs that arise from the landlord are transferred to the tenant. Now rent a small two-room apartment on the outskirts of Kiev costs 5-6 thousand hryvnia.
The lessee pays 2.5 - 4 thousand hryvnia for utilities. Plus, it will still be hanged property tax and tax for the fact that a person rented an apartment. That is, the apartment will already cost from 10 thousand hryvnia, "- said Kostetsky.
According to the analyst, adoption of the law will not affect market participants. Everyone will hide from him. After all, the law is not profitable for the tenant and landlord.
Earlier it was reported that in 2017 there was a record volume of absorption of offices in Kiev.
