What is a seizure of property?
Court cannot seize personal belongings and property required for professional occupation, as well as money from accounts with special user options.
The property can be seized solely by court decision, the seizure process is carried out by the executive service. No one has the right to impose a seizure without a court order.
Cases of property seizure
- During civil proceedings related to cases of maintenance, collection of debts or compensation for losses, distribution of property during divorce. The seizure of property guarantees that it will not be damaged, sold or given to someone as a gift before court decision.
- During criminal proceedings – to protect evidence, seize belongings and pay the damages.
- During business proceedings – to recover the debts of enterprises and private businesses.
Theoretically, there’s nothing terrible about the seizure of property in the above mentioned cases. As soon as the debtor has paid off their debts, the seizure will be removed. De facto, everything is different.
In 2006, an apartment of our clients was seized during maintenance proceedings. Everything went smoothly, he paid off his debts and lived peacefully until 2017, when he decided to give the apartment to his child. It turned out that, due to the negligence of state employees, the apartment was still under seizure, and documents on the maintenance case were lost because of their statute of limitations. He could not prove his innocence and remove the seizure himself and turned to us. We managed to recover the documents and solve the problem.
