  • To identify and describe the barriers that increase the transaction costs for contractors and how could they be addressed?
  • What are the formal constraints (eg the restriction to transfer the land on some groups), and informal ones (low trust among market participants)?

  • What is the attitude of the organizations concerned to limit the division of land?
  • It has to be improved information system to market prices for the land owners of the land, it is appropriate to highlight the role of landowners?
  • To identify the (specific) institutional factors impacting the land transfers that are currently in place in selected countries and to make the comparison with those implemented in CZ environment (if analogous exists) or to discuss the potential implications from their adoption for CZ land market (in case such institutions do not exist).
