REALWorld Law

Sale and purchase

Specific legislation

Does a special set of laws apply to the transfer of title to any of the following types of real estate: residential, industrial, offices, retail and hotels?



Different legal regimes apply to transfer of title depending on:

  • the type of real estate (land or other real estate);
  • the type of ownership (state, municipal or private); and
  • the status of the buyer (non-resident, resident, joint venture etc).

In such cases special laws apply, eg the Law of Ukraine ‘On the Privatization of State and Municipal Property’ No. 2269-VIII of 18 January 2018 and the Law of Ukraine ‘On the Privatization of the State Residential Fund’ No. 2482-XII of 19 June 1992.
