My son and I live in a one-room apartment privatized in my name. I am divorced and only my 15 years old son and I are registered in the apartment. I want to sell the apartment and buy a two-room apartment but I was told that in this case I would need a written permit for change of housing conditions signed by my son’s father. He refuses to sign such permit (doesn’t want me to live better than he does). Question: Do I really need such permit? In case I do, how can I buy a two-room apartment without my ex-husband’s permit?
In case the child is not an owner of a part of the mentioned apartment, you do not need Custody Agency’s consent which means you do not need second parent’s consent either. In case the child is an owner you need the consent.
