The Land Registry "moves" to the Ministry of Digital Government
The Hellenic Land Registry SA moves under the supervision of the Ministry of Digital Government from the Ministry of Environment and Energy, according to the PD "Transfer of services and responsibilities between Ministries and renaming of General Secretariats" published in the Government Gazette.
What does the PD, published in the Government Gazette, provide.
Specifically, based on the decision:
The Department of Cadastral Offices of the Directorate of Topographic Applications of the General Directorate of Urban Planning of the General Secretariat of Spatial Planning and Urban Environment (article 40 of PD 132/2017, A '160) is transferred, as a set of responsibilities, positions and staff, from the Ministry of Environment and Energy to the Ministry of Digital Governance.
The supervision of the legal entity under public law, under the name "Hellenic Land Registry SA", which was established by article 1 of law 4512/2018 (A '5), is transferred from the Minister of Environment and Energy to the Minister of Digital Government.
The digitization of the Land Registry is considered as one of the most important chapters of the wider digital transformation of the State as it is connected with critical sectors such as spatial planning, land uses, the Environment and real estate.
As recently announced at the beginning of 2021, the electronic access of professionals (lawyers, notaries, engineers, bailiffs) to the cadastral data (type of property, area, type of right, etc.) is put into operation, along with the electronic issuance of all certificates, issued by the Cadastral Offices of the Institution.
Today, the 3 most popular certificates are issued electronically, covering 80% of the requested certificates. The new digital services of the Land Registry are available through the digital platform of the Public Gov.gr, as well as through the official website of the Land Registry.
In addition, within 2021, the work of digitization of all the files of the 390 mortgage offices begins (over 600 million pages) with a horizon of implementation in 3 years and with funding of 200 million euros, coming from the Recovery Fund.
