Chapter Summary

The independent property restitution mechanism established under UNMIK Regulation 1999/23 was composed of two distinct organs, an administrative body, namely the Housing and Property Directorate (the HPD) which was responsible for collecting and processing claims, and the Housing and Property Claims Commission (the HPCC) which was the quasi-judicial branch conferred with exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate claims. This chapter describes the mandate, composition and respective functions of the HPD and HPCC. It enumerates the key substantive and procedural provisions relevant to the resolution of claims as set down in the relevant UNMIK Regulations and subsidiary laws, domestic laws and international human rights standards.
