UNECE/FIG Guidelines for Formalization of Informal Real Estate within Europe

Chrysi Potsiou

FIG, Greece

The new UNECE/FIG publication on Guidelines about how to structure a fit-for-purpose strategy to formalize informal real estate and how to integrate such real estate into a country’s national economy fast, affordably and reliably is presented. The Guidelines include: definition of term “informal real estate”; an analysis of the purpose of formalization; explanation why countries may need a technical Guideline for that; policy issues, e.g., why a Fit-For-Purpose Formalization may need to go beyond the existing scientific, engineering and planning practice; how governments should address the challenges related to funding, structural stability, environmental and ethical issues, and a possible hostile reaction against formalization; strategy issues, such as how to engage society to support the projects, and advice on how to build the framework for formalization and how to prioritize actions, as well as on how to implement and monitor formalization, including technical and legal aspects and key-issues about demolitions.


Real Estate Registration Project

Tamara Travar, Darko Miskovic

Republic Geodetic Authority Republic Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Real Estate Registration Project (RERP) is financed by World Bank loan. The project implementation period is 2013-2020.

Basic goals and expected effects of the Project in the Republic of Srpska:

• Establishment of a Real Estate Cadastre as a unique record of real property and rights on them in the territory of 190 cadastral municipalities,

• Ensuring conditions for positioning in the new coordinate reference system for the area of the Republic of Srpska (ETRS89), which will significantly facilitate the application of modern (GPS) measurement technologies and provide greater accuracy and reliability of positioning data in space,

• Establishment of reliable and accurate real estate records for the benefit of all citizens of the Republic of Srpska and other interested natural and legal persons,

• the development of e-services will enable interested individuals and legal entities to quickly obtain information about the real estate that they need,


IMPROVEMENT of cadastral maps in CROATIA

Cadastral maps originated from the 19th century are made by the graphing method and are far less accurate than required today, but these are still in official use on the 70% of the territory of the Republic of Croatia. By overlapping such cadastral plans with the actual situation we come to the problem, because larger or smaller position misalignments exist.

About the homogenization as a method of cadastral maps of graphic survey improvement in the Republic of Croatia several projects and studies has been conducted, a lot of expert papers were published, but the implementation of the improvement has not yet occurred.

In this project based on the analyses carried out, it was necessary to fulfil the existing methodology and create needed technical solutions.

The results of new approach are much better and they are strong reason to begin the implementation of the homogenization process as a systematic process.
