Cadastre data on the internet

A NEW internet website with information from the Slovak cadastre will be created in February, officials confirmed.

The database of information about the owners of real estate in Slovakia is expected to be accessible for free in its initial stages. Later fees will be imposed for access to the data.

Andrej Votiško from the cadastre office said to the Slovak daily SME on December 18 that "the exact price list will be known at the start of the year."

The operation of the cadastre database should be similar to that of the already functioning business register that is accessible on the internet. Information from the database, however, will not be valid as legal documents.

Pavol Kvarda from the land surveyors and cartography office said to the daily that the internet cadastre database is just the start of the office's online cadastre. He estimated that within a few years even property registration could take place online. That, however, depends on "the technical realization of electronic signature," Kvarda said.
