In particular, according to him, it was the case of clients of the company Penzadorstroy, which "got in a difficult situation". The number of people deceived by the company is over 800.
"We are trying to deal with the issue and will take care that it is solved. It is impossible to find a solution immediately," the head of the region noted at the operational meeting in the regional government on Monday, November 13.
He reminded that previously it had been likely that 2,000 people could have been deceived but this had been avoided due to a number of technical and financial possibilities.
"All the other houses will be built," the governor assured.
Ivan Belozertsev explained that it is impossible to allocate a large sum of money from the Penza region budget to commission 4-5 problematic facilities, that is why within a regional law it was suggested that other developers should finish the construction and for doing this they should get free land for new projects.
He added that the issue of connecting the buildings to public utilities was considered.
"I am going to visit the buildings this week," the head of the region said noting that a meeting with the developers will be held as well.
"I need a final decision regarding which companies will finish construction of the houses. [...] We must find a solution in any case [...], so that the Penza region has no deceived housing equity holders," Ivan Belozertsev summed up.
As it was reported before, on November 11 a rally in Penza attended by participants of shared-equity construction, who had bought flats in the housing estates "In Strelbishchenskaya", "Lukomorye", "Rayki", and "8 Marta", had been held. By doing so, the people tried to draw officials' attention to failure to commission the buildings in time.
They were holding banners with the inscriptions "Government must be responsible for fraudsters!", "Governor, where are you? Housing equity holders of Penzastroy are in distress!" and others.
