This book deals with issues around current property tax systems, aspects of implementation, land and property registration, the role of cadastres and the development of property markets in 31 countries in central and eastern Europe and western Asia. It provides country-specific real estate information not previously published. The coverage of this text deals with the post-soviet experiences of real property taxation and real estate in each one of the countries which have emerged since the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991; together with the so-called »satellite« states under the hegemony of the USSR; as well as the emergence of the countries of Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina following the break-up of Yugoslavia in 1992; and the Republic of Slovakia and the Czech Republic which resulted from the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993. The chapters deal with common themes in relation to real estate. There is a focus on the taxation of real estate, both in term of a recurrent property tax to partially fund local public services and also on the transfer of property rights. Other themes include the registration of real estate, the privatisation and registration of rights in real estate, and the emergence of a real estate market open to national and international investors.
