The land registry’s new online portal will soon become available, senior land officer Elikkos Elia said on Monday.
The new portal aims to help people who want to use the land registry’s database services by simplifying them and making the process quicker and more efficient.
“The department recognises the importance of informing citizens in a simple and understandable and friendly manner through its website,” Elia said.
“The necessary changes are being made in the land registry portal, in order to improve and facilitate the searching for the information that citizens need, regarding the application process, the required documents, the fees they have to pay, as well as the information on the progress of the application they have submitted,” he added.
Moreover, Elia called on all property owners who have not yet done so, to create a land registry portal account.
After registering, property owners can then access their personal page to track the progress of their applications.
“The land registry portal is a central point of reference for all applications submitted, as well as a two-way communication platform with citizens, while minimizing the need for people to submit questions, both electronically and by telephone, saving crucial time for department staff,” Elia concluded.
