In Russia, from November 1, property owners will start to receive notifications if someone submits documents certified by an electronic signature on the transaction of transfer or transfer of ownership of real estate. This is stated in the message of the Federal Cadastral Chamber, received by the RBC.
From the beginning of November, changes to federal law No. 286 "On state registration of real estate", which will introduce the procedure for receiving such notifications by owners, will come into force. Now for distance transactions, the property owner must submit a written application to USRN. Under the new rules, if someone sends electronic documents to the registration authority of real estate transactions, the owner will receive a notification to the email address he indicates. It should be noted that this will help in time to avoid misappropriation of property and other types of fraud, even if the documents are submitted by an authorized person.
The department noted that you cannot fake an electronic signature. However, attackers can sign a document from a stranger if, for example, they receive an electronic signature certificate issued by an unscrupulous certification center.
The electronic signature allows not only to carry out housing transactions, but also to submit a tax return, register a car and take part in an electronic auction.
