The Ministry of Housing does not put the issue of taking away apartment for the debts of the population for housing and communal services. This was stated by Minister for Housing Yuri Hivrich. "But we ask descriptions of the apartment, car, garage and property. But there is no mechanism for the implementation of this property," - he added.

The Minister noted that the draft Housing Code, which is scheduled to make the second reading in Parliament on 2 December, provides for any penalty fees for late payment of utility services.
"Every citizen must now answer - if he gets the service and it is quality, he must pay, and if poor quality - is the scheme of allocation" - said Hivrich.
In addition to provisions for calculating penalties in the draft Housing Code, the ministry registered in the Verkhovna Rada a separate law governing the same problem. The minister explained that if parliament adopts the Housing Code to this provision, the bill would not be necessary.
