Data on real estate and land in Egypt is stored in the unified state real estate register and bases of the General Geodesy Department.
The Register is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Land and Documentation of Egypt. The Cadaster is maintained by the General Geodesy Department.
The Land and Documentation Department is engaged in register maintenance, registration of transactions and other acts related to transfer of rights to immovable property. The Unified State Real Estate Register does not have an online version, and receipt of any information from it is possible only in the department’s office. It should also be known that the significant part of real estate objects of Egypt (first of all old buildings) are not listed in the register. As of 2005, approximately 10% of real estate in the country passed a complete real estate registration procedure.
Registers contain information about technical characteristics of real estate objects and rights to them.
Besides, one may obtain extracts from plans and maps of Egypt from data bases of the General Geodesy Department. Cadastral surveys of Egyptian lands has been performed since 1898. In order to obtain extracts from plans and maps, one must apply to the General Geodesy Department.
