RESTORATION OF LAND OWNERSHIP RIGHTS

Section 5. Persons to whom Land Ownership Rights are to be Restored

Land ownership rights shall be restored on the basis of a personal request to the former owners of land in the ownership of whom the land in the Republic of Latvia was on 21 July 1940 or to the heirs thereof in accordance with the Civil Law of the Republic of Latvia of 1937.

In cases when ownership rights have not been restored to the persons referred to in this Section due to the restrictions provided for in this Law, the referred to rights shall be restored as soon as the aforementioned obstacles for restoration of ownership rights have ceased to exist, unless compensation or land of an equivalent value in another place has been received.

The former owners of land and the heirs thereof shall be exempted from the State fee, if the ownership rights thereof have been recognised with a court ruling.
