The administrative body of the municipality informs the parties on the commencement of the expropriation procedure and brings decisions on expropriation. As soon as the decision on expropriation becomes valid, the PE “Roads of Serbia” is in obligation to submit a written offer concerning the method of payment and the amount of compensation for the expropriated property.

The tax administration office determines the amount of compensation for the land, while experts of relevant profession determine the amount of compensation for plants and structures. The agreement on compensation is signed before the competent municipal court.
