Anyone who buys a building site and does not build on it, contrary to a corresponding obligation, may have to expect a refund from the municipality for a very long time. This became apparent on Friday in a hearing at the Federal Court of Justice (BGH). In the case from Lower Bavaria, when the property was sold in 1994, the municipality had secured a repurchase right in the event that after eight years there was still no house. In 2014 she informed the owner that she was now making use of it. The question is whether this is still possible after such a long time.
