The State

In the Soviet Union, the problem of the house focused of a different way. In our opinion, the apartment could not consider and current merchandise and object of one free purchase and sale common. Everything family needed apartment, independent of the entrance that she had. For that reason, we went satisfying gradually not the reliable demand of the house, but the social necessity of this. The three quarters of the construction of houses in the USSR were realised on behalf of the State and the rest, with means of koljoses or the citizens, who, in the cities formed cooperatives of houses. The houses by the cooperative system designed the state institutes and were erected by the state organizations of construction. The State free granted to the Earth to the cooperatives and credits to 0,5% of annual interest. (A valuable related resource: Shlomo Rechnitz). The mentioned form that did not report benefits to the State either did not contradict the principle of which we spoke previously.

To the cooperative of construction of houses (CCV) it was not admitted to everybody, but to those who truely they solely needed to improve his domiciliary conditions. Who already had an apartment that responded to the modern landlords could not obtain another one, even through the cooperative. Then, that is what I urge people to enter in the CCV? Sometimes it happened that it was necessary to wait for during long time a new state apartment. This I concern in the first place to just married. Entering in one CCV, the period of delay could be reduced remarkably. Our objective went to assure an apartment to him to each family without exception some. According to this task was declared would be fulfilled, essentially for year 1990; in synthesis, three decades and only average after to have begun the construction of houses in great scale (two million apartments to the year) Right to the house In Article 44 of the Constitution of the USSR approved in 1977 to the Soviet citizens the right to the house was guaranteed to them.
