The Law prescribes the procedures for performance of the land reform in the cities of the Republic of Latvia. The objective of the land reform is to reorganise the legal, social and economic relationships of a land property and the use of land in cities during the gradual denationalisation, conversion, privatisation of State property and unlawfully alienated land properties in order to promote formation of city building corresponding to the interests of society, protection and rational utilisation of land. Tasks of land reform include to establish legal grounds in the regulation of land relationships and in protection of the rights and observance of the duties of an owner and a user of land; to restore the ownership rights to land or to transfer land in ownership, as well as to allocate land for usage to the persons referred to in Section 9; and to ensure the inviolability of the borders of plots of land with the assistance of Land Registers and cadastre documents.
