Land registry moving slow

As of Monday, property owners will be able to access the land registry to view information that was accumulated before 2008, it was announced Friday.

Until now, owners could only see information that had been collected since 2008 even though 333 areas had been registered before then.

Nevertheless, the process of completing Greece’s much-delayed cadaster is proving a slow one.

Only around 7 percent of Greece has so far been included in the land registry, while efforts are currently under way to add some 10 percent more. Owners in Kozani, Argolida and Arcadia have been given an extended deadline of end-November to register their properties.
