On October, 11, 2016 Victoria Abramchenko was appointed to a new post combining the functions of the head of the Federal service for state registration, cadastre and cartography (Rosreestr) and the Deputy Minister of economic development of the Russian Federation. Earlier, V. Abramchenko was a Deputy Minister of agriculture and the Secretary of state.

According to the Minister of economic development of Russia Alexei Ulyukayev, the main task of the new head of the Federal registration service and the Deputy Minister is “to establish a unified information system, to cooperate with the federal tax service, to split the duplication of functions with the national inventory and delegate some functions to the regions”.

“E Vesti” asked the press service of the Ministry to clarify, the duplication of which functions it is planned to divide during the institutional reforms. The questions were answered by the assistant of the Minister of economic development and a press secretary Elena Lashkina.

EV: Could you please tell us, what functions should be divided between the ministry and the national inventory? What kind of functions were dublicated by the offices before?

E. Lashkina: On January 1, 2017, the provisions of the Federal law No. 218-ФЗ as of July 13, 2015 “On state registration of real estate” will enter into force, which provides for the introduction of the unified state register of real estate (egrn), created by the combination of the unified state register of rights to immovable property and transactions therewith (egrp) and the state real estate cadastre (GKN). Early, the data of EGRP and GKN on each property was duplicated. Combining the information into a single information resource will help to eliminate this duplication.

EV: How these changes will affect the Russian citizens and this field?

E. Lashkina: This will improve the quality of information for property management and taxation. It will be possible to have a joint registration service instead of two procedures (first cadastral registration, and then registration of rights). The number of visits to Rosreestr will also decrease. This unified state information resource in the field of real estate will reduce the risk of illegal transactions in the real estate market and to increase the capitalization of assets, which will also improve the investment climate in the country.

According to experts, the new position is designed to combine the regulatory powers of the Ministry and the practical activities of Rosreestr. An odd element was excluded from the interaction process between the head of the Federal registration service and the Minister. It also says that the new position would have stronger ties with the Minister than it was before.
