Krasnodar, 8 November – Yug Times. Our today’s interviewee is Andrei Vlasenko, deputy director of the Krasnodar regional branch of the State Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography (Rosreyestr).
Q.: The experiment of the use of a cloud electronic signature started on 1 November. What opportunities will this novelty provide?
A.: First of all, I would like to note that introduction of a single system coincides with the authorities’ intention to consolidate the market of issuance of electronic signatures. The fact that currently they are issued by many different verification centres (altogether, there are over 400 accredited centres nationwide) stimulates various rogue schemes to appear. I believe that this experiment will help increase the efficiency, safety and convenience of remote use of a qualified electronic signature.
Q.: In 2019, the Cadastre Chamber launched a project aimed at re-engineering of the existing electronic services. Could you please elaborate on this in more detail?
A.: Presently, what we are witnessing is a real revolution in the digitalisation of the Russian stocktaking and recording system. The Cadastre Chamber is gradually transformed into a company charged with servicing of the IT infrastructure in the governmental sector. A unique IT platform is being created which will provide a set of opportunities and services related with realty transactions – sale, purchase, rent, and payment of the taxes connected with them – to both business sector and physical persons.
Our another priority project is to open the Analytical Centre for businesspersons involved in different industries based on the Federal Cadastre Chamber. Its aim will be to perform marketing research with participation of professional communities to identify the ways to improve the quality of the services granted by the Rosreyestr.
Q.: Are the citizens becoming more competent on the issues related to realty ownership and transactions with it?
A.: We – as well as the entire world – have for a long time been worried by such trend as people’s legal competence and the ways to improve it. In my opinion, legal competence must be based on the filling of the gaps in legal culture, because people’s legal incompetence, various collisions found in laws and by-laws, and their incompliance with the real needs and interests of the society are a consequence of legal nihilism.
During our regular hotline session, we noted that over 80% of Kuban people are interested in the issues related to realty sale contracts. They also know little about how to correctly dispose of their share in agricultural land plots when accessing the heirship.
