• In accordance with the decision of the RA Government N1517 made on December 24,2009 “On passing the state-owned areas located within the administrative borders of Yerevan to the community of Yerevan with the right of free use”, the total area of the areas passed to the community of Yerevan with the right of free use was 10596.1 hectares of which 2752.0 hectares were of agricultural significance, residentialareas-6087.9 hectares, industrial, mining and other significance lands-817.0hectares, areas of the objects of energetic, transport, communication and communal infrastructures-128.6 hectares, specially protected areas-797.6 hectares and water-covered areas-13.0 hectares.
• 141 families have been resettled from the buildings N8 and N10 of 4th lane Artskh avenue in Yerevan which had 4th level of emergency. Some of the families were resettled from the existing housing fund, others-after putting the new building at 3,Sisakyan street into operation.
• Before putting the new building at 3,Sisakyan streets into operation the resettled families rented flats and the rent fees were partly financed by the Municipality of Yerevan.
• There are still flats in Yerevan which have been occupied but haven’t been privatized since the Soviet period.
• A number of blocks of flats and community-owned dormitories have different level of emergency because of making changes in bearing constructions while repairing and because of not making timely overhauling and fortification activities. Damaged drainage systems and roofs also had negative impact on buildings. Because of improper financing of protective and preventive measures the technical parameters became inappropriate.
• There are still some buildings and constructions in Yerevan which have state registration but no address.
• There are land plots allotted for housing in Haghtanak, Charbakh, Noragavit, Nubarashen, Silikyan and Mushavan quarters of Yerevan which have not been privatized yet.
• Some buildings, constructions and land plots are not used in accordance with their significance and purpose which is to be clarified. As a result appropriate changes will be made in the property tax database so as the fees and property taxes will correspond with the actual significance of property use.
• There are such fixture and chattel real property on the balance of the Municipality of Yerevan which have been worn out for years and now are so badly-damaged that they need extra costs to be preserved and used.
