Agrarian communities have a long-standing tradition as they have existed for more centuries. In Slovenia, their activities were temporarily disrupted in 1947. After considerable efforts, the Act on reestablishment of agricultural communities and restitution of their property and rights came into force in 1994, which enabled their reestablishment and restitution of their property. Agrarian communities are unique due to their collective property; in order to solve any specific problems, different legal treatment is required than usual. They face many problems, including lengthy succession proceedings and land registration process. Consequently, agrarian communities cannot be registered following the Agricultural communities act, which ensures better operations and management of agrarian communities. In my paper, as part of my first research question, I analysed and compared both acts mentioned, in order to determine which act is the right legal basis in certain succession proceedings with regard to deceased members of an agrarian community. I determined that case-law in terms of property inheritance with no heirs is different in different cases. As part of my second research question, I analysed the advantages of the registration process following the first and the second act. By requesting information at several Slovene administrative units, I found how many Slovene agrarian communities have already been registered following the Agricultural communities act.
