According to the law above stated citizen of a Member State, stateless persons domiciled in a Member State or in Romania , as well as the legal entity formed under the laws of a Member State may acquire ownership of agricultural land, forests and forestry land in fulfillment a period of seven years from the date of accession to the European Union.
Before the deadline of 7 years foreigners can only join the local firms and thus exploit the Romanian lands .
However it seems that until the term limitation of 7 years, Romanian authorities are preparing a series of measures that will hinder foreign access to Romanian agricultural land.
Thus, a bill that will be debated in the fall of 2013 , to discuss the possibility of introducing measures that may consist in making the people who want to buy farmland prove to have experience in agriculture (in the State of origin), of 3-5 years.
Authorities are also going to introduce the bill and option to limit the sale to foreigners of areas of maximum 500 hectares . Moreover they show that there is a variable, namely granting the right of pre-emption to the Romanian state, as well as local and existing farmers to purchase land at the expense of foreigners who want to buy land in Romania .
Until a law is emitted in this sense by the Romanian authorities a stateless persons domiciled in a Member State or in Romania , as well as the legal entity formed under the laws of a Member State may acquire the right to ownership of agricultural land , forests and forestry land in Romania.
