Land Registry and the family home protective rules & Other Overriding mandatory provisions in family law

There are no family home protective rules in Slovak republic, so registrar doesn´t have any special requirements for registration the property

Practical case

Pietro had inherited a house from his parents’ succession. He is registered in the land book as sole owner. After that, he marries Sofía and they establish their family home at that house, where they live with their two little children.

Now, Pietro has received a very interesting offer for the house from an Investing company called Paradise Rooms SA, so he decides to sell it. Pietro and the representative director of the company have signed the purchase contract before the notary and have sent it to the Land Registry to register the new owner.

Would this contract be registered, assuming all the formal requirements are accomplished?

In this case property is still in sole ownership of Pietro and he can conclude the purchase contract without any special requirements.

Is there any other restriction or mandatory provision in the field of family law related to immovable property that should be taken into account?

No

Would any of your answers to these questions be different if dealing with a registered partnership, rather than a matrimonial property regime?

We haven´t got registered partnership in Slovak republic.
