Real estate registration may take longer

THE CADASTRAL office is planning to prolong the legal deadline by which they have to enter real estate into the official registry from the current 30 to 60 days.

According to the Slovak daily Pravda, the cabinet is expected to approve the draft, which would introduce that change in an amendment to the cadastral law. The daily stated that the reason behind the planned change was a growing number of court cases over the authorities' failure to keep the current deadlines.

Jelena Hudcovská, head of the cadastral office, said that several court cases had already been lost, and the state must now pay compensation of more than Sk20 million (€476,000) to the plaintiffs. It is estimated that the total value of pending court cases is Sk1.5 billion (€35.7 million).
