Money received from sale of a three-room apartment owned by my mother were used for purchase of two one-room apartments one of which was registered in my name (i.e. I am the owner), I am married and my husband gave his consent to the purchase of the flat though he didn’t contribute any money (indeed it was an exchange formed as a sale). Question: Does he have a right to receive a part of my apartment in case of divorce?
It was a mistake to register the apartment in your name as all property acquired during the marriage is considered to be common property of the spouses (Art. 34 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation). As the apartment sold by your mother was not your property it is quite difficult to consider this apartment to be your personal property. Nevertheless this matter is within the competence of court.
