One free legal consultation – and the house is warm

The provision of free legal aid helped a resident of the Luhansk region receive the payment for the purchase of solid fuel and to heat the house.

Before the heating season Andriy Boyko* addressed Novoaydarsky Centre of Legal Development Network. He told that he could not get the payment by the assigned subsidy to purchase the solid fuel. It was going to become cold soon, and he had neither coal nor wood! He wanted to take care about heating the house in advance.

Andriy explained the staff of the Centre at the Public Legal Aid that in March 2016 he had appealed to the local Department of social protection, where by results of consideration of the appeal he was appointed the subsidy for the purchase of solid fuel. Everything took place in accordance with the Regulation on the procedure for appointing and providing subsidies for reimbursement for housing and communal services, purchase of liquefied gas, solid and liquid fuel, approved by Resolution of the CMU dated 21.10.1995, No. 848. But until September, nearly for six months, he did not receive the cash compensation.

The Center's lawyer Tatyana Ganshyna conducted a legal analysis of current legislation on the Procedure for appointing and payment of subsidies for the purchase of solid fuel and helped Mr. Boyko make a statement to the district administration with the explanation that he could not receive payments. By results of consideration of the statement Andriy managed to receive the cash payment and in a timely manner to purchase fuel to heat his home.

The name is changed for ethical reasons.
