The Law regulates land commissions in Latvia. Under the Law, for the co-ordination of work and ensuring of lawfulness of the land reform, the Saeima must establish the Central Land Commission of the Republic of Latvia. For the examination of matters regarding the formation of land ownership and taking decisions, city councils must establish a land commission of the relevant city, and parish councils – a land commission of the relevant parish. In the administrative territories of a city, in which there is also land of rural areas, the relevant city council may also establish a land commission that performs the functions allocated to the parish land commission by this Law. The land commissions must work according to land and other legislative enactments in force in the Republic of Latvia. The work of land management in parishes and cities must be performed by the State Land Service or its licensed performers of work.
