Government sends to Parliament new bill on land register

Zagreb - The government on Friday sent to Parliament a new bill on land register which, according to Justice Minister Dražen Bošnjaković, will simplify procedures involving land books.

The bill defines new business processes and institutes of land register rights with the purpose of establishing a modern, efficient and transparent system of keeping land register and cadastral books in an electronic form.

This will increase the legal security in real estate handling, Bošnjaković said, adding that this was equally important for citizens as it was for the investors who wish to do business in Croatia.

The current law was amended nine times over the past ten years, the minister said adding that the law provided a further normative framework for full digitisation of land books.

The new bill stipulates shorter deadlines, he added.
