MINSK, 3 May (BelTA) - In a new episode of BelTA's YouTube project “After the Fact: Lukashenko's Decisions”, Viktoria Verina, Deputy Head of the Main Department of Land Regulation, Land Management and Land Cadastre of the State Property Committee of the Republic of Belarus, shared information on how to learn about abandoned houses set for selling in Belarus.
Viktoria Verina spoke about the operation of the Unified Register of Vacant Property which is available free online. “This register provides real-time information on such houses, and helps find their owners. If, for example, the owners do not use the house and have left the locality, for example, have moved abroad, they can learn that their house may be recognized as vacant and can write to us to notify whether they intend to use it,” Viktoria Verina said.
The second purpose of the register is that people can look at houses for sale online. “If someone gets interested in buying such a house, they can contact the rural or regional administration and ask for details. They can learn how the house is sold: whether via a direct sale or an auction. And they can apply for participation. Since the beginning of the year more than 110 houses have been sold. There is information on 150 more houses. The register features a total of 8,500 such houses,” Viktoria Verina said.
