Acquisition of property by operation of law

When the ownership of a property is transferred by operation of law (inheritance, foreclosure, expropriation, occupation, prescription), the acquisition is not entered in the land register.

Nevertheless, the acquirer will be able to dispose of (sell) the property only after he or she has been registered as the owner at the land register.
