Establishment of the National Land Register in Greece by Ktimatologio AE

Description of the 2007 and 2008 registration phases, with division according to region. Guidance on deadlines and obligations when registering properties and rights.

 

1. 2007 registration phase:

During the 1st phase of implementation, Ktimatologio AE took comprehensive measures to accelerate the process of implementing the National Land Register (Ktimatologio) in Greece.

 

The decision in March 2007 by Georgios Souflias, Minister for the Environment and Regional Planning, meant that all the local authorities in Attica, Thessaloniki and the capitals of the prefectures, which up to that point had not been recorded in the Land Register, were asked to register in the Land Register (establishment of the Land Register and undertaking of registration).

 

The goal is for two-thirds of the country’s population, 31 million acres and 6.7 million rights to be entered and registered in the Greek Land Register with the nine regions that have been included in the National Land Register.

 

The Land Register registration scheme was completed in 340 of the country’s regions within the first three months of 2008.

 

When this scheme comes to an end, approximately 84 million acres and 6 million rights should be registered, and a planned 97 Land Registries should be in operation. The following areas had been registered as of 26.5.2008:

 2. 2008 registration phase:

Other municipalities were included in the Land Register during the second stage. On 17 June KTIMATOLOGIO AE launched the new phase of Land Register registration in 107 municipalities, settlements and communities in Attica, Thessaloniki and the prefecture capitals, which had not been registered in the Land Register during the previous scheme. This latest Land Register registration phase is supposed to be completed in 2011.

 

Owners of properties in these 107 regions or holders of rights to them living in Greece were initially given a deadline of 31.10.2008 for declaration to the National Land Registry.

 

Owners living in Greece were then granted a period of grace to 21 November 2008. When this deadline expired, a final deadline of 12 December was set for missing declarations, along with imposition of a fine.

 

The registration deadline for property owners permanently domiciled abroad expired on 30 December 2008.

Requirements for registering a property in the Land Register in Greece

 

Before a property can be registered with the competent Land Registry office:

 

1. Possible pendencies in connection with the real estate or rights thereto are to be clarified, which include, for example, verifying whether the corresponding titles are properly registered in the local title registers and whether additions and/or corrections are necessary, whether there are still defects in the contracts, or whether as yet open preliminary contracts or resolutory conditions are to be regulated in contracts, etc.,

2. The necessary documents must be enclosed with the application, including

a) photocopies of the deeds which prove the rights to the real estate (e.g. contracts)

b) proof of payment of the registration fee for registration in the Land Register (receipt).

 

When submitting the application, a copy of the applicant’s personal identity card or passport is required, as is a document showing the applicant’s tax reference (e.g. tax assessment, utility bill, etc.).

 

3. Consequences of missing the deadline for registration in the Land Register

 

Usually the only option still open to owners who have failed to register their property/rights in a timely manner is to bring a suit before the competent regional court in non-contentious proceedings for recognition of the property within eight years of the expiration of the deadline. The court’s decision allows late registration of the real estate in the name of the actual owner. Only in very rare cases, and only if conclusive proof is at hand, will the Land Registry allow an entry simply by means of application, for example if the owner’s name is already recorded in the Land Registry within the scope of other official procedures for a property.
