Aliona Babak: Unless the Parliament adopts the law on public utilities, there will be a collapse in the management of housing

MP from the Samopomich Union faction, Deputy Chairperson of the Committee on Construction, Urban Development, Housing and Communal Services, Aliona Babak, urges parliamentarians, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada and the heads of the factions to include into the agenda and put to a vote the law “On Housing and Communal Services”, which is now fully prepared for the second reading, but for some reason is put aside.

According to the people’s deputy, if this law is not adopted by the beginning of the new year, there will be a collapse in housing management.

“More than a year ago, we adopted a law “On peculiarities of management of apartment buildings”. We have opened the property management market, switched to a contractual relationship in determining the price of housing management, but we have not provided the tools: requirements to manager, to typical contracts on management to ensure that this market truly operates. Without this law, people won’t be able to conclude proper contracts for household maintenance.

Amidst all the events happening there must be something consistent and reliable. And this stability lies in the management of our apartment buildings: the stability of the supply of water, heating, electricity, gas, the waste disposal.

“We have no right to let there be an imbalance in the housing sector. Let’s introduce proper contractual relations and open the management market for each and every house,” says Aliona Babak.
