There are still thousands of panel houses (Paneelmajad) – also known internationally as Khrushchyovkas or Khrushchevkas – in Estonia which were built in the Soviet period and many are in need of renovation. Owners are not aware of how dangerous the balconies and fences are. Tallinn supports associations in ordering audits but there are not enough specialists.

Võrk said the city does not have an overview of the results of the audits because the contracts are created between the entrepreneur and the apartment association.
