Krasnodar, 5 August. This article discusses the progress in settlement of the problems of deceived flat owners (the Krasnodar region is known to have been a national anti-leader on the gravity of this issue), and what judicial collisions accompany this process.
At the end of July, Andzor Pruidze, a constructor from Sochi, managed to achieve commutation of sentence. The court had sentenced him for seven years in prison, but upon considering the appeal it softened the verdict to six years and ten months. In fact, the accused person would not go to prison – while he had been at the pre-trial detention centre, every day was reckoned as one and a half.
Pruidze and his accomplices had been accused of collecting money from shared construction participants as if for the construction of the Tuapsinsky Rediential Complex, and Fazatron and Gorizont Apart-Complexes in Sochi. One hundred and sixty-five persons from different Russian regions were acknowledged as suffered from their acts. It is worth noting, though, that several thousand co-owners are still waiting for the keys from their flats.
Meanwhile, the embezzlement case is being delayed in Novorossiysk. What is at issue is the case of the co-owners of the Marseille Residential Complex in Novorossiysk. Its construction began in 2012; the high-rises had to be commissioned in 2014, but it had never happened. In July, the destiny of one more hopeless long-delayed construction project was clarified – that was Building 2 of the Anit-City Complex. It was decided that the project would not be completed, but the shared construction participants would receive compensations.
Also in July, the regional Court of Arbitration took a decision to bring Nikolai Gerasimenko, the controlling person of the Southern Regional Construction Complex LLC, to liability by the company’s commitments. By the moment of bankruptcy, he had been the only founder of the company – but the extent of his liability had not been determined then. The total sum will be calculated after settlements with the creditors. The company is known to have been building the Seventh Heaven Residential Complex in Krasnodar. Now the Mayor’s Office promises that the high-rise will be completed by the end of this year – and that the construction works will be completed by the investor at its own cost.
At the end of July, it was announced that the construction of another long-delayed project resumed – the Zhemchuzhina Residential Complex at Chaliapin Street in Krasnodar. The project will be accomplished by the new contractor – the regional construction company founded by the regional authorities.
As for the Karandash Residential Complex in Krasnodar, its commissioning was considered impossible when the preparedness of the high-rise approximated 100%. It happened due to the deviations committed by the constructor. The shared construction participants were advised to file a collective lawsuit on acknowledgement of their property right.
