Often, the simple request of giving back the land in kind under Law 18/1991 encountered many difficulties for its favourable resolution, be it its non-resolution in due time, the refusal to give back the land in kind or on its old sites, or for various reasons.
Do not be fooled that easily by the answer of the authorities and their solution to offer you compensation instead of land in kind, because most of the time it is possible that these authorities did not obey the procedure provided by law for the exhaustion of the land in kind and this solution is refuted by the court of law.
Recently, the Buftea Court and Ilfov Court ruled in our favour in a request for giving back a land in the Peris area in kind under Law 18/1991 and forced the defendants, the Local Commission, to give back the ownership right, and the County Commission, to give back the land in kind and issue the title deed.
Although the Local Commission and the County Commission have both claimed during the trial that there is no longer any land to be given back in kind and suggested giving compensation, but they could not prove that they obeyed the entire procedure provided by law for the exhaustion of the entire surface of land to be given back in kind. On the contrary, during the trial, we proved that there is land to be given back in kind both locally and from the county, and therefore, we could win the trial because the local authorities were forced to comply with the provisions of the court.
Our recommendation is: do not hesitate to turn to the services of law professionals even when apparently you are not given any chance of winning.
