The Moscow City Court satisfied the administrative claim of the Principal to challenge the cadastral value of the real estate object. As part of the dispute, the lawyers of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure” managed to prove that the established cadastral value is overstated, since it was determined by the mass valuation method without taking into account the individual characteristics of the Principal’s object. Arguments about the discrepancy to the established value were confirmed by the results of a forensic examination. The reduction amounted to 24%. As a result, the Principal will be able to optimize tax costs in the amount of 3 million rubles. The interests of the Principal were represented by Irina Novikova, senior lawyer of the practice of resolving disputes with state bodies of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”.
The Presnensky District Court satisfied the Principal’s claims, collected 1.5 million rubles from the Debtor against the debt under the loan agreement and foreclosed on a car worth about 1 million rubles. As a result of the successful actions of the lawyers of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”, the court also satisfied the Principal’s claims to recover current interest from the consumer-citizen for using the loan at a rate of 15% per annum and a penalty of 0.05% for each day of delay until the date of actual repayment of the debt. The court did not see any grounds for reducing interest on the loan taking into account the debtor’s payment discipline. In addition, during the preliminary trial, the Bureau’s lawyers managed to defend the consideration of the dispute at the Plaintiff’s location, without transferring it for consideration to another region of the Russian Federation, where the consumer-citizen actually settled. The objections submitted to the court made it possible to save the Principal’s travel expenses on potential business trips of lawyers to a court of another region. The interests of the Principal in this dispute were represented by Sergey Bibikov, senior lawyer of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”.
