Property Law

Property law governs the buying, selling, renting and ownership of property. It impacts both individuals and businesses, covering a wide range of issues such as landlords and tenants’ relationships, transactions between home-buyers and financial institutions, encroachment, succession, division of property (division in kind) and licitation.

Property law in Mauritius is governed by; inter alia, the provisions of the Civil Code, the Successions and Wills Act, the Code of Civil Procedure, and the Non-Citizens (Property Restriction) Act, The Real Estate Agent Authority Act, The Cadastral Survey, The Land Acquisition Act and The Landlord and Tenant Act.
