Real estate law

prawo pracy jako specjalizacja w Kancelarii KRS Katowice

Our services are aimed at both individuals and legal entities whose activities are related to the need to regulate the legal status of real estate or its management. Typically, real estate is the most valuable asset, and problems related to management often revolve around it.

According to Article 46 of the Civil Code, real estate comprises parts of the earth’s surface forming a separate subject of ownership (land), as well as buildings permanently connected to the land or parts of such buildings, if they constitute a separate subject of ownership under special provisions.

Provisions regulating issues related to real estate – such as their sale, use, lease, lease, construction (private, development, and industrial), as well as the possibility of encumbering them (mortgage) – are found in various legal acts, and their interpretation requires the knowledge of a real estate lawyer.

The provisions governing matters related to real estate are often referred to as real estate law. In Poland, they include regulations from various sources, including:

  • The Civil Code,
  • The Construction Law,
  • The Act on Land and Mortgage Registers and Mortgage,
  • The Real Estate Management Act,
  • The Cooperative Law,
  • The Act on Ownership of Premises,
  • The Developer Law.


Real estate law in Poland consists of a collection of many regulations. Companies and private individuals engaged in real estate transactions or other real estate-related investments should ensure effective legal assistance provided by professionals, including a real estate lawyer or a real estate legal advisor.
