From Our Experience
In February 2006, our partners in the interests of LLC "Eksimdzh" first time in history has made satisfaction of the claim to the Moscow Government to compel the conclusion of the contract of sale of land in Moscow. The confrontation with the Moscow government lasted for about a year and for the first time in history ended with the victory of the plaintiff to exercise their right to privatize the land in accordance with Art. 36 of the Land Code, using compulsion to an agreement.
In parallel with this matter LLC "Eksimdzh" with the help of our partner for the first time in history win the Department of Land Resources of Moscow case to invalidate the decision to refuse the privatization of land.
Despite that the mayor of Moscow, Yuri Luzhkov personally signed two Moscow Government supervisory review to Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation, as well as on behalf of Moscow Government applied to the Chairman of the SAC RF to quash the judicial act, it did not save the Government of Moscow from uncomfortable jurisprudence regarding Moscow's land privatization.
But even after losing in court, Moscow government 11 months used to refuse to enforce judicial act, which was obvious consequence of predictable FSSP RF inactivity, faced with such a case for the first time.
After the victory over the Moscow Government, it was relatively easy to overcome Mosregistratsii resistance (the predecessor of the Russian Register's Moscow Office) twice, who refused to register the transfer of land ownership to the buyer.
