Management companies began to send payments to Russians with non-existent debts or those that had already been repaid. Sometimes invoices are large amounts or ten years old.

As reported "News", the trend was noticed in the second quarter of this year. As the executive director of NP Housing and Public Utilities Control Sergey Sokhranov explained, this could have happened due to the fact that in the midst of the pandemic last year, owners began to pay worse bills for housing and communal services, and management companies are trying to compensate for the losses incurred in this way. From March to June last year in some cities the collection rate of utility bills dropped to 60%. In the fall, the situation improved.

There are limits for enforced collection of debts for housing and communal services - they are limited by the statute of limitations of three years. But even after that, the Criminal Code has the right to issue debt receipts. They can only be challenged in court.

The issuance of imaginary debts can also be associated with technical errors in settlement systems. Experts advise requiring reconciliation and recalculation.
