The investor (i.e. its special-purpose company /SPV/ established by the investor for the purposes of project realisation) selected in a public tender will enter into a contract for the establishment of the “Right of Construction” on land owned by the Municipality of Pašman for the implementation of the Pašman Riviera project. The investor (i.e. its SPV) will have the “Right of Construction” within the tourist zones, golf zone and service-logistic zone for 99 years. The investor (i.e. its SPV) will after construction be the owner of all objects (hotels, villas, apartments, restaurants, recreational facilities…) while the owner of the land will remain the Municipality in accordance with the Law on Ownership (Property Act). After expiry of the “Right of Construction” (99 years), the Municipality is required to reimburse the investor (i.e. its SPV), for the increased land value. If it turns out that, based on the provisions of the Law on Ownership (Property Act), the Municipality, as the owner of the land, is obliged to pay the investor (i.e. its SPV), as the holder of the “Right of Construction”, compensation for the increased value of its real estate, the relations of the contracting parties will be regulated by a separate contract in the last year of this Contract in accordance with the then valid regulations.

Upon final expiry of the period for the use of the “Right of Construction”, the investor (i.e. its SPV)  will return the land into the Municipality’s possession and deliver the buildings to the Municipality’s possession and ownership.
