Property Law For Slovenia

The property law for Slovenia is relatively straightforward and the process is fairly straight forward. It is usual for a 10% deposit to be paid to secure the property under the terms of a preliminary contract which states the basic terms of the sale and any special conditions. A main contract then follows. Both parties should ensure that they have independently reviewed and translated the contracts before completing the transaction. It is also recommended that a local lawyer is consulted before completing the transaction to ensure that the transaction will be legally binding and that all documents are correct. More info :

Normally a non-resident entity or individual requires a Slovenian tax number (by entering it into the business registry or central population register). This is a legal requirement and it is difficult to obtain without the help of a Slovenian lawyer who will arrange this on your behalf and act as agent.

Who can acquire ownership rights?

The citizens and legal entities of EU, OECD and EFTA Member States and foreign persons who are natural heirs of a Slovene person may acquire ownership rights on real estate. Citizens of other countries may acquire ownership rights on real estate only if this is permitted by law or an international treaty that binds Slovenia.

Generally the owner of land and buildings is an integral whole and follows its legal status (superficies solo cedit). The same principle applies to mortgages: a mortgage over the ground extends to the buildings constructed thereon, as the buildings are an integral part of the land. However, if the building is located on land entailed with a specific right of superficies (“stavbna pravica”), then it is possible to charge the building separately from the ground.
