1. What are the main rights in rem arising from successions in your system?

In case of succession legatee/heir have full rights to obtain an ownership to a given property.

2. What would the role of your Land Register or registrars be in order to put in practice the principle of adaptation? What contributions could the Land Register make?

There wouldn‘t be any direct role in adapting this principle since for it to work properly in Latvia there would have to be a proper changes in legislation. Only after that can Land Registry judges use the principle of adaptation.
