Back Croatia: Legislative changes adopted to provide global solution to the protected lease scheme issue and to ensure an effective remedy to complain about excessive length of civil proceedings

On 14 March 2024, the Croatian Parliament adopted two laws to execute the European Court's judgments.

In particular, the law was adopted to resolve the long standing issue concerning the statutory limitations on the landlords’ use of flats subject to protected tenancy (Statileo v. Croatia group). The law aims to secure the balance between the rights of landlords and lessees and to provide the necessary global solution to the issue of the protected lease scheme.

Furthermore, the Croatian Parliament adopted amendments to the Law on Courts, which, inter alia, provide for a combined compensatory and acceleratory remedy. The amendments introduced provisions related to the protection of the right to a trial within reasonable time (followed under the Kirinčić and Others v. Croatia group), since the European Court indicated that the previous relevant provisions were not effective.
