The Russian government considered the draft law expanding the powers of the Lombards. The document suggests that through a pawn shop can pay for utilities and rent an apartment, writes “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
As explained by the publication of the Association of lawyers of Russia, the pawnshop is planned to be empowered to act as a Bank payment agent. This means in particular, that they will pay the fines, utility bills, taxes, cell phones, and perform other financial transactions. Thus in Lombard you can come without money, with any thing it will accept as collateral, and the funds received will be allowed immediately to pay the bills.
Another service provided by the bill, — renting of immovable property. Housing, as expected, may receive from debtors who have received money on the security of the apartment and failed to pay.
At the same time increases the control over the activities of pawnshops, points to “the Russian newspaper”. Right to work will receive only those business entities which will be included in the special register of the Central Bank, and check pawn shops will not be automatic.
Earlier in July it became known that about 10 million Russian citizens renting residential real estate and 49 percent of them intend to stay in rented apartments or rooms for at least the next two years.
