Hungary’s land transaction law carries the approach which is typical for the whole agricultural law. On the one hand, the subject of acquisition is special, so its subject is the agricultural and forestry land that has many unique features. One of these specialities is that its value is difficult to determine. In the socialist period, as the social goods of most, the value had not been attributed to the land. However this approach changed after the change of regime. The definition of land value has become important and it is still one of the key issues regarding the assessment of land transaction relations.
