Certificate of title

Registration of a property in the cadastre or Land Registry Office is proof of ownership of the property. A Certificate of Title can be obtained from the record in the Land Registry Office. This has a validity period of six months and can be renewed as required.

The record in the Land Registry Office includes the name of the property owner, a reference number for each property as well as details such as the size of the property and any restrictions or encumbrances. Where a property includes a balcony or terrace, the area of the balcony or terrace is included in the property.
