Eviction from the apartment through court
A person can be evicted from apartment by court if there are no legal grounds for his residence in a particular apartment. In addition, a person may be recognized as having lost the right to use apartment without providing another place for living if he does not live in the apartment, but retains his "registration" in it.
Recognition of property rights to the apartment
In Belarus, there are various grounds for acquiring ownership of real estate: as a result of a transaction, inheritance, through privatization, shared construction. At the same time, people often turn to a housing lawyer in cases where privatization was carried out with errors, the legal heir was unreasonably removed from the inheritance, etc.
Recognition of property rights to a share in a house
In our practice, there are cases when one of the spouses, being married, significantly improves the property of the second spouse, which belonged to him before marriage. For example, one of the spouses inherited a house, and during the marriage the house was reconstructed, an additional floor was added, as well as other improvements were made to the property. In the event of a divorce, as a general rule, the house will not be divided between the spouses, since it is not a common joint property.
A housing lawyer through the court will ensure that the improvements made are recognized as common jointly acquired property, which will make it possible to raise the issue of its division in case of divorce.
