Oleksandr Polivodskyy reminds about two methods for obtaining information on unoccupied land in Ukraine

All Ukrainian nationals are entitled to obtain free six land plots of different intended use. In accordance with the legislation, land plots can be allocated in any region irrespective of the place of residence if there is any unoccupied land within a territory falling under the authority of a municipal council.

Sofiya Law Firm partner Mr Oleksandr Polivodskyy has told to the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice I Am Entitled To project about how to obtain information on unoccupied land and to exercise one's right to obtain land plots for free.

First, in accordance with the Public Information Access Act one can prepare and file a query with a local urban planning and architecture authority of a local state administration and/or with a local authority of the State Cadastre of Ukraine. The abovementioned authorities are required to answer in writing requests they obtain from individuals and legal entities disclosing requested information on available land plots, if any.

Second, necessary information may be obtained on one's own. For this purpose, it would be sufficient to consult Ukraine's public cadastral map bearing information on all land plots and areas that have not been yet registered as land plots or someone's property.

When filing an application with an executive or local self-government authority (the initial step of the land obtaining process), one may specify that the information on the available land plots have been obtained from the Public Cadastral Map.
