Terminate the Land Lease Agreement in Ukraine

Several rules can prevent actual land loss

The chairman of the Ukrainian association of landowners Holovyn Roman, told how to avoid problems with leased land in Ukraine. The specialist shares the correct sequence of actions regarding the planned termination of the contract. Holovyn does not consider the option of abrupt termination of the treaty, as there are many nuances to consider. So every situation becomes unique and personal.

Termination of land leases due to the expiry of the contract is the only simple way to stop payment for the use or renting out of Ukrainian land. At the time of termination, both parties must follow the rules and laws in force at the time the contract was concluded. The same applies if any legislation has been amended since the signing of the documents.

But despite this rule, it is necessary to take into account digitization. This phenomenon in Ukraine creates an exception. The land lease contract may be renewed automatically without the owner's knowledge. To prevent such a situation, the land owner must contact the relevant services and notify them that he does not wish to renew the contract. The state register of real property rights must be contacted at least one month before the expiry of the current contract.

At the same time, it should be remembered that the lessee in Ukraine has the right of priority. This means that he can extend the contract. In this case, however, the public service must be contacted one month before the expiry of the contract.
