The expert of the information portal Zhilfin.rf (within the framework of the project of the Ministry of Finance of Russia on financial literacy) Lolla Kirillova explains that according to paragraphs 117, 118 of the Russian government’s decree from 06.05.2011 N 354, the contractor can limit or suspend the provision of public utilities by notifying the consumer in advance in case of incomplete payment by the consumer of the utility service in the manner and terms established by these rules. In this case, incomplete payment means the existence of a consumer's debt to pay one utility service in an amount exceeding the sum of two monthly sizes of a utility service fee, calculated on the basis of the norm of its consumption, regardless of the presence or absence of an individual or common (apartment) metering device.
“That is, they can limit the provision, for example, of electricity, if there is a debt of more than two thousand rubles (if the cost of the consumption standard is one thousand rubles) with proper notice, the procedure for which is established by paragraph 119 of the resolution,” said Lolla Kirillova.
According to the expert, you can not save debts, but conclude an agreement with the contractor to repay the debt (installment payment). To do this, contact the appropriate organization. During the period of validity of this agreement, provided that it is executed in good faith, no interest shall be charged or collected.
