From the editor in chief. The Journal Concept
Themes of our journal are exactly defined by its name.
There are four sections in the journal:
- "Real Estate Economics"
- "Real Estate Law"
- "Practice in Regions"
- "Participants of Real Estate Market"
In the section "Real Estate Economics" we deal with
a broad circle of problems:
real estate economic policy , real estate investments,
real estate and investments taxation, methods of
financial analysis of real estate investments, social
aspects of real estate economy, efficient usage of
state real property, standards of international
investors. While considering real estate economy
problems we inevitably touch the broader layer of
problems, in particular, those connected with
privatization, state real property management,
bankruptcy, investments. But the main task of the
journal remains research of real estate problems.
Importance of these themes is defined by their role in
forming legal relations in the field of the real
estate and transactions with it as the basis of
further economic development of the country.
In the "Real Estate Law" section we publish articles
devoted to analysis of the normative documents
regulating real estate rights and deals (also
concerning such questions as privatization or
bankruptcy) as well as practical application of these
normative documents. Particular place in the journal
will be occupied by analysis of federal legislation,
legislation of Russian Federation subjects, judicial
practice, analysis of foreign experience.

materials revealing the ways of the current real

and law-imposing practice, since many decisions before

and often even come from regions.
