Jurisdiction is the choice of court in which a claim can be filed. All statements of claim related to the recovery of a penalty under an equity participation agreement with a claim value of more than 50,000 rubles are filed with district (city) courts.
Moreover, the right to choose between several courts belongs to the Plaintiff.
Data on the location of the Developer, if suddenly for some reason they are unknown, can be obtained from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities by submitting an application for an extract from any tax authority, although they are usually prescribed in the equity agreement itself.
We would like to note that Developers often include in the Agreement a clause on “contractual jurisdiction”, or rather, indicate in which court the case between the parties will be considered in the event of a dispute. This clause of the contract is not valid, as it infringes on the rights of the consumer. Therefore, the choice of court depends entirely on the Claimant, and the Developer cannot limit it.
