Different types of Real Estate Law

General Property Law 

General Property Law concerns rules and agreements around the purchase, rental, formation, transfers, ownership, and leasing of properties, which is also summarized in the Land Code.

Special Property Law 

Simply explained, Special Property Law concerns rules between the public (such as the state and municipality) and property owners. It concerns rules around environmental law, property plans, property formation, expropriation, etc. What one should keep in mind is that Special Property Law has many elements of public law, such as mandatory legislation, strong formality, and also a strong position for the principle of publicity.

  • The Land Code 
  • The Property Formation Act 
  • The Facilities Act 
  • The Utility Easements Act 
  • The Expropriation Act 
  • The Housing Cooperative Act
