Legacy has retrieved in last 20 years lands, businesses, private homes and community real estate to associations, as well as to private owners from all over the world. Each case has it's unique complications and route when dealing with legal systems in East European countries. Some countries are more lenient than others when dealing with old property claims and it may be easier to obtain compensation or re-ownership for the old family assets, while others will cause time consuming procedures. We, at Legacy will never recommend to give up your family assets - despite the long time which passed, the long time which it may take - and the legal system which we must deal with.
Poland, for example goes through a massive real estate development. Some of the properties look old and un attended may go through a massive renovation and will sell for a substantial sum of money. Many others still look the same as it looked when left due to tragic events of the second World War.
Legacy suggestion is - Never wave your LEGAL RIGHTS to claim family assets. These assets belonged to your family!
