The first sweeping change provided for by the amendment is a change regarding the value of the subject matter of the dispute in cases decided by district courts.
Prior to the amendment, Article 17 indicated, among other things, that the jurisdiction of district courts included cases: for property rights, where the value of the subject of the dispute exceeds seventy-five thousand zlotys, with the exception of cases for alimony, for violation of possession, for the establishment of property separation between spouses, for reconciliation of the content of the land and mortgage register with the actual legal status, and cases heard in electronic writ of payment proceedings.
As of July 1:
– the jurisdiction of district courts includes cases of property rights whose value exceeds one hundred thousand zlotys,
– additionally, cases for reconciliation of the content of the land and mortgage register with the actual legal state – which will thus go to the district court – have been removed from the exclusions.
