Purpose This paper aimsto substantiate the existence of the form of ownership of naturalresources (land)

of land plots is a unique legal phenomenon caused by the specicity of the transition period of Russia from a
totally state economy to a market economy. This inevitably leads to emergence of legal structures unknow n to
European systems of law and order. This issue has not only a theoretical but also practical nature.

legal science.

1. Introduction
Ownership issues havealways been the focus of public attention, as well as of economicand
legal science. If we considerownership in the economic sense, its nature:
Consists in having the possibility of deriving benets from things and property, consuming them
in a certain way to satisfy interests and desires, gaining prot, and the legal basis of ownership is
availability of legally established, recognized rights of particular persons to possess things,
values and legalized possibilities arising from these rights to dispose of ownership objects, use
them at their own discretion (Management of state property, 2002).
Economic theory distinguishes a number of features inherent in ownership and
predeterminingits place in any economic systems:
Ownership is a general economic phenomenon existing at all historical stages of
social development, ownership relations form the economic mechanism of any
Ownership is a social relation; it is not only generated by society but can also exist
only within society; to dene ownership, it is necessary for the subject of ownership
to enter into relations concerning its object with other persons.
Ownership is the basic (system-forming) relation, as exactly ownership unites
production relations into a single whole transforming them from the aggregate
into a system; ownership relations determine one or another type of economic
system (Morgunov and Chernyavsky, 2013).
