This article analyzes legal regulations concerning access to public waters. Public waters are surrounded by property belonging to various owners. The legal title to property is exercised throughout that property, but certain limitations apply to properties situated in the proximity of public waters. These limitations include the right to cross the property, and public access to water. The article discusses various legal restrictions that permit third parties to use land. The presence of legal limitations in the national information system was verified. Information on restrictions in land use considerably affect the owner’s right to property, which is why owners should be able to determine whether their property is encumbered by an easement. National information systems are currently being upgraded in Poland, and the availability of information on land use restrictions was analyzed in the existing databases. View Full-Text
