Current legislation allows Russians to rent apartments to tenants for a short period. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy Igor Fomin, reports the news agency "Moscow".
Thus, Fomin denied rumors about a ban on daily rent of housing introduced in Russia. “This (the information that has appeared about the corresponding ban - approx.“ ”) is absolutely not true. The Civil Code of the Russian Federation allows you to rent out housing for any period, ”the parliamentarian stressed.

He added that homeowners are required to comply with the rules for renting property, including entering into a written agreement with tenants and paying taxes on rental income. “In regions that have already introduced a tax on professional income - Moscow, Moscow and Kaluga regions, the Republic of Tatarstan, a citizen can register as a self-employed and pay four percent of the rent,” Fomin said.

Information that daily rent of apartments was banned in Russia appeared in the media on November 15. Later, it was denied in the Ministry of Construction and in the State Duma, while the chairman of the Duma committee on housing policy and housing and communal services Galina Khovanskaya criticized the very institution of daily rent.
