an apartment is a premise in an apartment building that can be used by citizens only for living and satisfying their domestic needs. In addition, in the legislation of the Russian Federation there is a direct ban on doing business in the housing stock. At first glance, these two rules prohibit residents from earning money at the place of residence, but there are exceptions to them. The following activities at home do not fall under the legislative ban: the sale of surpluses produced to meet household needs (you have cooked 3 jars of jam, but used only one – you can sell two freely); production and sale of hand made products; copyright works and services.

Relations with neighbors The reason for neighboring claims may be: increased noise in the apartment and violation of the regulatory regime of silence (from 21.00 to 8.00); the presence in the apartment of acrid extraneous odors and smoke; high humidity; increased use of electricity and load on utility networks. Any of these signs of production will give neighbors a reason to complain to the municipal authorities. If it is established that the owner of the disputed apartment has violated the rules for the use of housing, then fines will be imposed on the offender.

Another thing is if the silence regime is violated, the load on communications will increase, and odors, dampness or smoke will appear in the apartments of the residents. In this case, even if you previously took the consent from the neighbors, it will not be taken into account when resolving the dispute that you have violated the rules for using the premises in an apartment building.
