The commercial court of Kyiv obliged to return the funds.
The Commercial Court of the city of Kyiv satisfied the lawsuit of the Kyiv City Prosecutor’s Office against the company, which for 2 years did not pay the money for the use of the land. He was obliged to pay over 377 thousand hryvnias to the territorial community of the capital for the use of the land plot.
It was established that since April 2020, the company is the owner of a complex of non-residential buildings with a total area of 1,176.6 square meters. m, which is located on a plot of land with an area of more than 1 hectare on the street Pyrogivskyi Shlyach in the Holosiivskyi district of the capital.
Having acquired real estate, the company issued the right to lease the specified land plot only in December 2022. In this regard, for more than 2 years, she used it to maintain her property without title documents, while not paying rent.
As a result of the society’s free use of communal land, the territorial community of the city of Kyiv did not receive significant funds from the budget for a long time. This had a negative impact, in particular, on the strengthening of the defense forces of the capital and the restoration of city objects damaged as a result of military actions, as well as solving other urgent issues.
The court agreed with the prosecutor’s arguments about the company’s violation of current land legislation and completely satisfied the claim.
