Extract from the land register of Cyprus

Our company Schmidt & Schmidt provides Extracts from the land register of Cyprus with translation and Apostille.

Unlike many other European countries, the land register of Cyprus represents a uniform system containing both legal and cadastral information.

The process of land register establishment began in Cyprus during the time of Ottoman Empire rule in 1858. After Cyprus fell under British control, new authorities at first left the Ottoman system unchanged, however in 1890 due to its inconvenience connected with a large number of different registers British people embarked on their transfer and unification. Since 1904 mapping of the island’s territory started. In 1907 – 1929 evaluation and registration of rights of ownership to real estate were carried out in Cyprus, and three registers were established: land, tax and register of values. During the 1949 reform, laws on land registration dating back to the Ottoman Empire and colonial period were cancelled. In 1995 the land register computerization process was launched.

The Department of Lands and Studies (Τμήμα Κτηματολογίου και Χωρομετρίας) is responsible for land register maintenance, which forms part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cyprus (Υπουργείο Εσωτερικών). It maintains the Land Information System (Σύστημα Πληροφοριών Γης). Besides, the Department is responsible for all services related to registration of rights, estimation, geodesy, cartography and management of state property.
