Caras LCM

Lourenço Correia de Matos, a partner at LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles, was the guest of the writer Rita Ferro in an interview published in this week's Caras magazine.

In a relaxed conversation that had as its backdrop his activity as a historian, Lourenço Correia de Matos spoke privately of the experience as a researcher in the field of genealogy, stressing that the interest in the discovery of the ancestors and family history cuts across all ages, professions and socio-economical means. Accompanied by his wife, the photographer Ines Correia de Matos, the partner of LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles also answered some of Rita Ferro ‘s curious questions, such as whether “there are many people who want to be noble”, are there still “questions with no answers” in research or “what is the most noble family of Portugal”.

jornal I na sua experiencia de investigacao no ambito do dominio publico hidrico

João Bernardo Galvão Teles, a partner at LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles, spoke to the newspaper I about the consulting firm’s experience in history and heritage in the investigation aimed at obtaining documents that confirm the ownership of properties located along the margins of the sea or of rivers previous to 1864 or 1868.

LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles, based on their experience of researching archives, has come to work with several owners or lawyers delegated by them to obtain historical documents that entitle the real estate properties located on sea or river public domain land.

Indeed, the Law No. 54/2005 of the 15th of November, which has been altered since then, determined the 1st of July of 2014 as the deadline for the filing of judicial actions for the recognition of private ownership of plots on the margins of the sea or of rivers, otherwise considered public domain. Thus, on the burden of proof, private owners are required to demonstrate that the lands in question were already of private domain at a date prior to the 31st of December of 1864 (or the 22nd of March of 1868, in the case of craggy cliffs).
