Moldovan government has approved the Regulation on the procedure to correct errors made in the process of transfer of land ownership
The document stipulates the procedure to correct errors and eliminate inconsistencies from the inventory. The document clearly establishes the process of initiating the error correction procedure, the main conditions for correcting errors, the procedure for correcting errors, etc. As InfoMarket reported earlier, the Moldovan parliament had previously approved a mechanism to correct mistakes made during the transfer of land ownership, including a new article in the Law on Real Estate Cadastre on the features of correcting mistakes made during the transfer of land ownership. The article provides for a classification of errors, which are divided into the following categories: measurement errors, design errors, identification errors, inconsistencies. The document provides a detailed interpretation of these concepts, and also stipulates that these errors are corrected by the decision of the local council, adopted on the basis of a new land management project or a new geometric plan. As necessary, errors will be corrected based on justifying data related to the correct identification of real estate and the copyright holder, provided that the corresponding correction does not lead to the transfer of demesne of the land owners. The government was recommended 3 months before the day the law comes into force, to bring its normative acts in accordance with it, ensure the development and approval of normative acts for the implementation of this law. It is planned that error correction will be financed from the budget and the assistance of development partners. According to preliminary estimates, this will require 15 million lei. As previously reported, the authors of the bill noted that in 1998-2001, through the USAID-funded Pământ National Program, the process of transferring land to private ownership has been completed. In a relatively short time, about 2841 thousand “titles” were issued. Some owners decided to process their land quotas on their own, some leased or sold them. When establishing the boundaries of the plots, in some cases mistakes were made that led to dissatisfaction of the owners of the plots or local authorities. Petitions were received to correct mistakes made during the privatization of agricultural land, but they cannot be individually corrected, since all nearby plots on the field need to be corrected. The authorities found that in the process of mass privatization of lands about 200 thousand mistakes were made in 500 mayoralties from 34 districts. However, the country did not have legislation to correct these errors, and the above additions to the Real Estate Cadastre are intended to mend this defect. // 12.09.2019 - InfoMarket.
