Abstract Constitutional transformation in Poland, which took place at the turn of the eighties and nineties of the past century, was directed, among others, at creating a civil society and a free market. Changes in people’s mentality quickly brought about economic changes based on the concept of private ownership. Yet one should remember that in the period preceding this time, personal assets were significantly limited. Many people’s assets were repossessed by the state in nationalization or expropriation processes. Present regulations permit getting these assets back. This is possible in cases when the repossessed real estate was misused with the purpose of expropriation, or it became needless. Real estate is also reacquired via invalidation of administrative decisions or provisions of law. Real estate owners and their legal successors can apply to get back real estate. It is possible to get compensation for assets which cannot be taken back in actuality, which should correspond with the actual value of the lost rights. The level of compensation should be determined on the basis of real estate market value. This value is determined for the day the decision to determine compensation is issued, taking into account the state and purpose of the real estate on the day the document approving the repossession of the real estate was prepared. The authors present changes in law provisions connected with spatial planning in Poland from the year 1946, when the first decree connected with this topic entered into force, to this day. They describe documents kept in state archives which should be used by valuers. They also show, on the basis of examples, how important the correct determination of the intended use of real estate is, taking into account documents that have been created over the years.
