Question:
I am a British passport holder spending more than 183 days in Russia every year and I own my own apartment in my own name. If I was now to marry a Russian National and subsequently get divorced then what claim would my partner have on my property if I wanted to sell it. Could she stop me selling it and does it make a difference if she is registered at the apartment address. Thanks + Regards,
Brian
Answer:
Dear Brian,
According to Russian legislation, an apartment purchased prior to marriage is solely the property of the person whose name appears on the Certificate of Ownership. That means if you purchased the apartment before marrying, your ex-wife could not claim to be the owner of the apartment nor have any claim even over part of it. She could not, therefore, prevent you from selling the apartment. If your wife was registered at the apartment address and refused to be de-registered, she could be forced to do this by a court. For more detailed and confidential information on this or any other legal aspect of buying and selling property in Russia, please feel free to call Intermark on (495) 775 2240. Best regards,
Yana Lukyanova
