This thesis analyses the problematic of expropriating property (deprivation of property rights) on the basis of judgements and orders of the Supreme Court and Administrative Courts in the era between 2006 and 2010. We have also analysed valuation reports acquired at the Celje Administrative Unit that apply to actual expropriation procedures.
The thesis focuses on applicable law in the field of expropriation, which is the Spatial Management Act (ZUreP-1). The analysis of judgements and valuation reports has shown certain problems in expropriation procedures, especially their longevity due to compensation coordination for expropriating real estate and side costs, as well as the problem of categorising property which is being expropriated. The final part of the thesis also offers some possible suggestions for improvement.
