After the end of the Soviet regime, a dual situation – a divided property with land and buildings owned by different persons – occurred in Latvia. Study objective: to describe key tendencies of modernising the Latvian legal system for discontinuation of compulsory divided property by examining historical development and legal framework thereof. Methods used: general scientific – descriptive, analytical, formally dogmatic, graphic; Legal interpretation methods – grammatical, systemic, teleological, historical. Conclusions: occurrence of the divided property is related to historical circumstances and causes various issues between building owners and landowners; thus, elaboration and adoption of new draft laws will ensure discontinuation of the divided property and well-balanced interests of the parties. The study could be binding to those willing to know more about legal system development tendencies in other country, i.e., in Latvia.
