Property development in post war Europe
February 27, 2018 3:50 PM   Subscribe

So I was listening to 99PI and they were talking about redevelopment of cities after the second world war in continental Europe. I began wondering how were property rights managed in post war Germany? Say you owned a flat in an area that was descimated and scheduled for redevelopment in a "moderen" style. Did you recieve any compensation? If you owned part of the land in the city that was to be rebulit, did you retain any claim to it?

I don't know too much about it but maybe the Lastenausgleich law is what you are looking for. It was a law that managed recompensations when buildings were destroyed or damaged among other things. It also was a law contributing to the so-called "Wirtschaftswunder" or german economic miracle in post war Germany.
