The Riigikogu rejected at the first reading the Bill on Amendments to the Restrictions on Acquisition of Immovables Act (7 SE), initiated by the Estonian Centre Party Faction. The result of voting: 44 votes in favour, 25 against, 1 abstention.
The Bill had been intended to enable natural persons who are not citizens of the Contracting States of the European Economic Area but at the same time reside in Estonia on the basis of a long-term residence permit to acquire an immovable with an area of 0.2 ha which gives persons the possibility to purchase land in gardening associations. The current Restrictions on Acquisition of Immovables Act provides for national defence restrictions upon the acquisition of immovables.
