In some cases, public utilities require 150 rubles per person, and in others – 300 rubles per apartment. We found out if such exactions are legal.
In Magnitogorsk, announcements of work days appeared on several houses at once. Public utilities are asked to leave residents of high-rise buildings to clean the local area. Yes, so convincingly that in case of refusal – will come through.
Residents of the house 9/2 on the street Domenshchikov saw ads on Friday.
The decision was taken by the homeowners association "Rainbow". By the way, the clean-ups have already passed: April 12 and 13. Some tenants actually participated in establishing order.
But residents of the five-storey building on 7 Galiullina Street have only to go on a Saturday. The walk of the voluntary-compulsory event was already estimated at 300 rubles from the apartment, and the harvesting time was already stretched for a month. The decision was taken in the housing cooperative number 26.
“We are kindly requested to take an active part in sanitary cleaning of the area around the house, playground, basements (from April 11 to May 1, 2019). To tenants who did not take part in the cleaning, hand over 300 rubles each from the apartment on the board of housing cooperative number 26, ”says the announcement.
The citizens had a question, is it legitimate to demand money from the tenants and force them to go on a Saturday:
“Who cleans up outside the days of the Sabbath?”
“We pay for maintenance and repair. Enough for this ”;
“And how will they know who was and who was absent? A cool magazine or a neighbor's dirty work? ”
The last question was quick to answer the locals:
"On subbotniks the house manager is cleaned up with everyone, she knows everyone by sight";
“One five-story building enters HBC 26. We all know each other and control the rake is not needed. Your laughter is inappropriate. Some janitors will not remove the city, you need to help, and not to count money. ”
Someone suggested that so decided to motivate citizens.
“I think so, just a plan like this: I’m sorry for 300 rubles – I’d better go out and wave my broom.”
Some said that there is nothing terrible about going on a clean-up day, or giving these 300 rubles, the main thing is to be clear, noting that in the housing and utilities sector there are not such big salaries. They also remembered the times of the USSR, when they left the house on a clean-up day, and also cleaned the whole year round at the entrances.
“In our cooperative house for a long time already. Did not come out on a Saturday – pay. And not to pay: almost the whole house goes. "
“Do not confuse your work with socially useful work. Every spring, everybody goes out to clean the city, which we litter. ”
To find out how legitimate it is to put tenants in front of a choice: take a rake or pay money – we turned to the Magnitogorsk Consumer Rights Protection Association.
“It’s illegal to hang such advertisements by housing cooperatives or HOAs because this type of work is connected with the maintenance and repair of common property and is already paid by the owner. If a decision is made on any work related to the cleaning of the local area, then they must be carried out by the organization with which the relevant contract should be concluded. The organization can execute them independently or with the involvement of third parties. That is, owners can be attracted to such works only on the basis of labor relations, under a contract of employment, ”explained Vladimir Zyablitsev, chairman of the Consumer Rights Protection Association of Magnitogorsk.
So it turns out that participation in the cleanup is voluntary. And the imposition of a fine for the lack of cleaning, even in accordance with the decision of the cooperative, will be illegal. If the tenants still get the bill for "absenteeism", then you need to contact the prosecutor's office.
