On Friday, members of parliament welcomed amendments to the State Survey and Cadaster Act, which will relieve the economy and ensure a modern and efficient system of land administration.

They were particularly pleased that the cadastral survey procedures of municipalities, which currently take more than six and a half years on average, will be shortened to about two years.

“The regulation of the cadaster is a prerequisite for the development of cities and municipalities and the shortening of procedures is extremely important,” said Anamarija Blažević (HDZ).

Predrag Štromar (Club of HNS, HSU and Independent Representatives) agreed with her, pointing out that unsettled land registers hinder investment activities and that their settlement is the basis of economic development.

“The law is a step forward in arranging the cadaster and land books,” agreed Urša Raukar Gamulin (We can!).

But, she added, the law will achieve its goal only if the law on land registers is changed.

Branko Bačić (HDZ) stated that out of 3,360 cadastral municipalities in Croatia, about 15 percent or 414 of them have started the process of new survey, and that about 200 of them have been completed so far.

“In the next 10 years, it is planned to measure 9.7 percent of Croatian territory, which is marked as construction land and which includes 6.5 million cadastral parcels, which is 42 percent of all cadastral parcels,” said Bačić.

MEPs also welcomed the abolition of most data usage charges.

The law abolishes the collection of most costs of using data for issuing excerpts, transcripts, certificates and copies of data from state survey documentation, a real estate cadaster, building register and for using data through network services, leaving the state budget without 9.5 million kuna per year.

“Nine and a half million kuna is negligible considering the savings that citizens will have, which have so far struggled with regulating real estate,” said Barbara Antolić Vupora (SDP).

The State Secretary at the Ministry of Physical Planning Dunja Magaš said that the legal changes would create a common IT framework for land registers and cadaster, reduce the number of procedures and speed up procedures.

“It will also ensure access to data without tax and surtax levies, and strengthen the competitiveness of the economy and improve the business environment,” she added.
