Minister: Networking of land books and land survey books "reform of the century"

Construction and Zoning Minister Lovro Kuscevic on Monday announced the establishment of state administration for real estate as a result of merger of the state administration running land survey offices with land books offices within courts.

Minister Kuscevic described these changes as a "the reform of the century".

The proposed changes aimed at streamlining the land records management are included in the National Reforms Programme adopted at the government session last week.

The entire reform of land records management should be finalised by the end of 2020.

Minister Kuscevic of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) thanked Justice Minister Ante Sprlje of the Bridge party for "close cooperation and coordination" in this project.

The networked data about land registers are important for Brownfield investments, that is in cases of the purchase of a previously constructed factory or other facility in order to use it for a new activity.

Justice Minister Sprlje said in his interview with Hina three months ago that measures would be taken to bring more order to the field of land registers and registers kept by land survey offices.

"Currently data in land books and in land survey books are being networked,“ Sprlje said adding that this would be also beneficial to the economy.
