In Primorye, six local residents were found guilty of forcing a transaction under the threat of violence, destruction or damage to property of others. The defendants received from 4 years to 23 years of imprisonment in the colonies of general, strict and special regime.

In early October 2013, a local resident who knew the specifics of working with real estate transactions created a criminal organized group. As victims, she chose problem apartments, the owners of which were several conflicting people. Throughout 2013-2014, members of the group coerced such co-owners into transactions on the disposal of property on terms favorable to attackers. At the same time, criminals used violence or threatened property owners.

According to information from the regional prosecutor’s office, when they received ownership of the share, the group members suggested that the second owner sell or acquire a share in the ownership right from them. However, the price was unprofitable for co-owners. To agree, the criminals put pressure on them, including psychological.

Attackers participated in the "blackmail" seven apartments in Vladivostok. According to the expert of the information portal Zhilfin.rf (within the framework of the project of the Ministry of Finance of Russia on financial literacy) Lola Kirillova, such situations are a rather rare case, and there is a way to avoid this.

“You can manipulate your co-owners precisely when they are at enmity. This is the favorite horse of many criminals - to play on the hostile relations of the owners of shares in the apartment in order to mislead the parties and profit at their expense. Since the disposal of such real estate depends on the will of all other owners of shares in the housing, you need to try to establish contact with them, negotiate, ask for help from a person who is respected by all participants. It’s more profitable for everyone, ”says the expert.

Lolla Kirilova notes that if the share is insignificant (1 / 5 or less), and the housing is small, then the court may oblige other owners to pay compensation for the share. So a person drops out of the number of owners.
