Privatization of housing will make it possible to make a personal apartment from a state apartment.
- It ensures the human right not only topersonal possession, but also for use. What does it mean? And the fact that now you can freely sell an apartment, change, give, and also carry out other legal actions, that is, dispose of your property.

- In addition, the apartment can now serve as collateral for obtaining a mortgage loan.
- Privatization of housing gives some guarantees to the owner. For example, if he does not want to pay for repairs, as well as house maintenance, no one has the right to evict him from the apartment.
Now about the minuses.
