To register transactions with an apartment, a technical passport is required. This is an information document that reflects the condition of the dwelling. It is useful to know what this document is and how to obtain it.
There are two main types of technical passports: building passport and apartment passport.

The passport of the apartment, in particular, is obtained upon receipt of approval for the redevelopment of the premises or in the process of registration of transactions with real estate.
The technical passport of the building contains information about the size of the building and the number of floors, the date of construction, and the date of major repairs. The thickness of the walls and the material from which they are made and other technical data are also indicated. The building passport also contains the floor plan of the premises.
In the technical passport of the apartment, you will find information about its footage, the number of rooms, the material of the walls and partitions. The so-called inventory value of the apartment is also indicated.

Upon receipt of a technical passport for privatization purposes, you will need your passport and a certificate in form No. 7. When registering an inheritance, you will also be required to have a death certificate, the heir's passport, the original and a copy of the title document.
Registration of a passport will require an inspection of the apartment by an employee of the design and inventory bureau, to whom you must provide access to the premises. This service is paid, you can pay for it at any branch of the bank.
