The record of real estate in Georgia is included in the Real Estate Register.
The Real Estate Register in Georgia is under the jurisdiction of the National Public Register Agency which falls under responsibility of the Ministry of Justice.
Acute need for creating the real estate register in Georgia emerged in 1990-s amidst the privatization process.
A legal basis for creation of the uniform real estate data base was created in 1997 by means of introducing a relevant regulation in the Civil Code. The State Land Management Department was established for management in this area. However, technical inventory bureaus (TIB), which were subordinate to local self-government authorities, were preserved, which resulted in duplication of functions and lack of coordination of authorities in real estate registration issues. Thus, in 2004 the State Land Management Department was abolished, and TIBs were dissolved after it. Instead, the National Public Register Agency was established, to which all data from previous real estate registers were given.
Since 2017 the Agency has started to introduce the blockchain technology.
