the Assignment of claims organizations not expressly authorized participants of the market of housing and communal services, has led to abuses and violations of rights and legitimate interests of citizens, — stated in the explanatory note to the document.

Citizens regularly turn to the deputies with the requirement to take appropriate decisions.

When the deputies were preparing the law, a response was received the following case: a 92-year-old man, war veteran, came collectors and the threat of a soldering iron intended to cause damage to his health. This was told by one of the authors of the initiative, the Vice-speaker of the state Duma Irina Yarovaya. She cited other egregious examples: for example, "perestaralas" collectors brought the coffin, placed at the entrance and placed it on the room of the apartment of the debtor.
