Renaming streets – what is to be done with the documents?
Due to the renaming of the elements of the residential road network, the questions periodically arise about which documents are to be replaced after renaming, and which are not.
As for the title documents to real estate, after renaming the following documents remain efficient:
– certificate of title;
– certificate of heirship;
– purchase and sale agreement;
– gift agreement.
In the case of operations with real estate – purchase and sale, gift, inheritance, and others, one can use the documents with old names of the elements of the road network, provided that these documents are followed by a certificate of renaming which can be obtained from the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture.
It also should be noted that the owner in entitled on his own initiative to change the documents for the new name of the street or location.
