Heat power industry will return more than 40 million rubles to residents of Buryatia
In Buryatia, residents of houses in Ulan-Ude and the village of Kamensk are re-calculated for heating, because people, despite the lack of heating appliances in the houses, continued to receive receipts for paying for central heating services. Money will be returned by TGK-14.
Recalculation was done for a total amount of almost 41,2 million rubles. According to the government of Buryatia, residents of the republic submitted 837 applications for illegal charges. After that, in Ulan-Ude, the heating was restored by 325 to the applicants, 103 agreed to connect central heating, and 120 refused. Residents of Kamensk filed 282 applications, with 267 of them restored heating, 13 are waiting for connection, two people refused.
The expert of the information portal Zhilfin.rf (within the framework of the project of the Ministry of Finance of Russia on financial literacy) Lolla Kirillova notes that the residents demanded the recalculation correctly. According to article 157 of the Housing Code of the Russian Federation, the amount of utility bills is calculated on the basis of the amount of utility bills consumed, which is determined by the readings of metering devices, and if they are absent, based on consumption standards for utility bills, charge heating fees for residents who do not have centralized apartments heating is illegal. It follows from the same provision that recalculation must be requested if the heating has been switched off.
“A service provider, in violation of the procedure for calculating heating fees, resulting in an unjustified increase in the size of such a fee, is obligated to pay the owner or tenant a fine in the amount of 50% of the excess of the charged utility bills over the amount to be charged,” said Lolla Kirillova.
