Evidence from a 1998 survey in Albania found that 62% of farmers declared that sons would inherit the farmland (Wheeler and Laha, 1995; Lastarria-Cornhiel and Wheeler, 1998; Wheeler, 1998).

Data and surveys from the first decade after the beginning of the reform (Moor and Flyn, 1997; Kodderitzsch, 1999; Lemel, 2000; Sabates-Wheeler and Waite, 2003) to the recent past (World Bank, 2006, 2007; ARD, 2007) show a rural property market that has hardly developed in Albania.
