ONLINE The Laws relating to Things in the Public Domain

This session is open to Notaries only

The Public Domain Act, which is now the 4th Schedule of the Civil Code, raises new issues in relation  to land in Malta, both that traditionally known as the foreshore, as extra commercium property, and in relation to inland areas, on the one hand, and the sea and territorial waters and underlying sea-bed, on the other hand.
The law is detailed and complex and it reflects basic principles which give it context and basis for understanding the potential of this law. It also deals with processes.
The introductory lecture is intended to expose the main features of the law and the intentions behind it so that notaries coming across areas covered by the new law are aware of the key issues they will need to consider going forward.
