Real Estate Law in Cape Verde

Real Estate Law comprises a set of rules and principles that regulate legal relations between individuals, based on property law, Possession Law, Usufruct Law, Use and Housing Law, among other modalities. It also focuses on the integration of norms and rules of legal business specific to the real estate sector, which is why, in particular, we have contracts for the purchase and sale of real estate, lease, commercial and housing contracts, among others. The Real Estate Law is currently understood, by many, as an area in evidence. Therefore, the constant demand for municipal and building services to real estate transactions, especially the demand for properties for purchase, sale, and lease for residential and commercial purposes, has been triggering an accelerated development of urban and rural territory and, consequently, a commitment to improving and adapting the legal framework in this sector.
