Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Feb. 6
By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend:
Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov instructed the relevant authorities of the country to conduct an inventory of all residential buildings in Ashgabat, said the Turkmen government Feb. 6.
The president discussed the issue at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.
"Due to a significant increase in the welfare of the country's citizens in recent years, some of them buy several apartments and lease them. However, there are still no specific provisions on this point," Berdimuhamedov said.
The president made serious remarks about the leadership of the interior ministry and local authorities for an irresponsible attitude to the issue, and demanded to streamline the system of apartment leasing registration.
He also said those who rent apartments should get permits for temporary residence in them.
"Those who lease apartments, and those who live in them, must comply with the current legislation, and cooperate with the State Tax Service in line with statutory obligations," said Berdimuhamedov.
