In the case, the complaint of the applicants for eviction from the apartment, which they purchased from a person who does not have rights to her, was successfully considered. The violation of the requirements of Article 8 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights was committed in the case.
In 2010, the applicants were assisted in the preparation of the аpplication. Subsequently, the аpplication was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In their complaint, the applicants, who were bona fide purchasers, complained about their eviction from the apartment they had purchased from a person who did not have rights to her, but this was not known to the applicants when buying an apartment.
On 25 July 2017, on a complaint lodged by the applicants, the Court unanimously held that in this case the Government violated the requirements of Article 8 of the Convention (the right to respect for private and family life) and ordered the respondent State to pay each applicant EUR 7,500 as compensation for moral damage.
