Material Law Usucapio Conditions, As A Means Of Acquiring Property Rights In The New Civil Code


  • Claudiu IGNAT

    (Lawyer, Dolj County Bar Association)


Besides convention and inheritance, usucapio was, is and will certainly remain the most important and most common way to acquire property of buildings and the importance of this institution was established, confirmed and reinforced by attempts at which the usucapio institution was subject to by doctrine and jurisprudence equally. Usucapio or acquisitive prescription is a way of acquiring property and other real rights, characterized by the possession of a thing for a period fixed by law. It was provided by art.645 of the Old Civil Code as one of the original ways of acquisition and in art.1847 of the same code it is provided that acquisitive prescription has the same character.
