On 1 January 2023, the Law on Termination of Forced Shared Property in Privatised Apartment Houses entered into force, which gives apartment owners of apartment houses in forced shared ownership relationships the right and opportunity to redeem the land attached to the house for its cadastral value.
The aforementioned law will ensure the possibility to terminate the forced divided property, when there is apartment house with privatised apartment properties on the land owned by another person. In other words, if the apartment owners want to, they will have the right to buy out the part of the land, on which the apartment house is located, for the cadastral value of the land. In addition, if the apartment owners decide to buy out the land under the apartment house, the landowner will not be able to refuse them this opportunity.
