Must read

Since December 2023, a program has been launched in Ukraine to use housing certificates necessary to purchase new housing in exchange for destroyed ones. One of the mandatory conditions for receiving compensation is the termination of ownership of your destroyed property. lawyer Alexander Golovchenko.

“To do this, you need to do the following:

  • submit a claim about destroyed property through “Action”;
  • terminate the ownership of the destroyed property.

After receiving a housing certificate, you must contact the state registrar of rights or a notary to register the termination of ownership of the destroyed object.

The procedure for state registration of rights to real estate and their encumbrances was approved by Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated December 25, 2015 No. 1127. It determined the grounds for state registration of termination of ownership of a completed construction object or construction project in connection with its destruction. According to the latest changes, this process can occur if there is information about the fact of destruction of property received by the state registrar from the Unified State Register of Property. In cases where such information is unavailable due to circumstances such as temporary occupation, registration is carried out using other documents, such as: or an extract from the State Register of Property; or a commission inspection report.”


The commission inspection report contains a conclusion on the need to conduct a technical inspection; such state registration is carried out only if there is information about the fact of destruction received by the state registrar from the Unified State Electronic System in the field of construction.

“For state registration, termination of ownership of an object due to its destruction must be submitted:

  • a statement from the owner (co-owners) of the object, the authenticity of the signature on which is certified in accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On Notaries”. If property, in accordance with the law, belongs to spouses (former spouses) under the right of joint ownership, the application is signed by each of the spouses (former spouses), regardless of whether only one of them has state registration of ownership.
  • a document certifying ownership of the object (except for cases when ownership is already registered in the State Register of Rights or when such a document is missing due to loss, damage or deterioration).

The administrative fee for such state registration is 300 hryvnia. The general registration period is 5 working days.”
