Deputies of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg adopted a resolution on an initiative to amend the law dated March 14, 2022 No. 58-FZ, which propose until December 1, 2023 to allow the extension of lease agreements for berths and other state property for businesses without assessing the market value of the lease object for a period up to three years. The document will be sent to the State Duma for consideration in the coming days.

For this, it is proposed to supplement the federal law with a new article that will allow tenants of state property premises to conclude appropriate additional agreements to the current lease agreement.

The need to adopt this document was discussed back in May this year. Then they mainly talked about berths and offered to allow the lease to be extended at the request of the business until March 1, 2023. At a meeting on October 5, an amendment was made to the draft, increasing this period.

After the restrictions of the period of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as after the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions, problems arose in many regions where there are water areas involved in the economy. At the same time, it became impossible to simply prolong the lease agreements that were concluded as a result of the auction – this was prohibited by the antimonopoly agency. It is not advisable to conduct new auctions for the conclusion of contracts, as this will lead to an increase in prices for renting berths, which will negatively affect the cost of passenger transportation by water transport.

As deputy Irina Ivanova explained, the changes in 58-FZ in such wording will affect not only berths and the entire complex of state berthing property, but also other representatives of small and medium-sized businesses renting premises in buildings owned by the state. This will solve not only the problem of bidding and the cost of rent: “All of them are now “sitting” on contracts under Article 621 of the Civil Code. That is, on perpetual contracts, which can be changed or terminated at any time if desired. After the adoption of this law, it will be necessary to adhere to the terms of the fixed-term contract.”
