It has been suggested that this article be merged into Lex loci. (Discuss) Proposed since November 2021.

Lex loci rei sitae (Latin for "law of the place where the property is situated"), or simply lex situs,[1] is the doctrine that the law governing the transfer of title to property is dependent upon and varies with the location of the property, for the purposes of the conflict of laws. Conflict is the branch of public law regulating all lawsuits involving a "foreign" law element if a difference in result will occur, depending on which laws are applied.
