The Notarial Role In Interconnected Land Governance

Pauline Malaplate, Frédéric Varin

High Council of Notary (CSN), France

Every minute, around 300.000 tweets, 15 million texts, 20 million emails are sent around the world, ten hours of video are uploaded on YouTube and 250 Go of data are archived on Facebook servers.

Consequently, thanks to the use of algorithms, new tools will make this service more and more efficient. This is one of the major challenges facing the French notary service.

Recent history shows that the partnership between the professional and State land tenure services, which have worked together for more than 10 years, offers a good and reliable service to citizens, guaranteeing security and efficiency.

Today’s digitalization of the procedures, such as dealing with land registry or client transactions related to the transfer of ownership, envisage a ‘paperless’ future.

The dedicated and automated access to real estate files by the notaires in France is imminent.


Online portals support European Interconnection of Land Registers

Hendrikus Johannes {Rik} Wouters

Dutch Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster), Netherlands, The

The creation of a true single market and the free movement of capital is a great challenge to a united Europe. Cross border information on real estate that is easily accessible and online is a crucial pre-requisite to success. EULIS offersprofessional users a portal to meet this pre-requisite.

Since the beginning of the EULIS initiative, the EU-Commission was a very important supporter of the basic concept of connecting national land registers to one European platform. In 2008 the e-Justice portal was launched, which provides direct access to legally oriented registers such as business registers, insolvency registers and others. In 2012 the Commission developed strong interest to integrate the EULIS portal in the e-Justice portal, thus giving direct access to the land registers of the member states via its own portal. The paper presents the technical details of the portal, the European interconnection project and a view on the future.


Lessons from Information Technology-based Land Governance Reforms in India

Narayana Aithappa Gatty

Azim Premji University, India

Nearly two decades of experiment with Information Technology-based solutions to the problems of land governance in India hold important lessons about requirements for scaling up of land governance reform projects from pilot stage. However, no systematic survey of the experience of the Indian States in IT-based land governance projects has been undertaken despite the policy and academic importance such an exercise. This paper seeks to address this gap by answering the question: what are the factors which have facilitated or constrained scaling up of important IT-based land governance reforms from the pilot stage across the Indian States. The paper draws on the extensive data available with the federal department of land resources under its ambitious Digital India Land Records Modernization Project (DILRMP) and also from vast secondary literature in the form of assessment of various pilot projects.

New Trends in Development of Land Tenure in Russia

Alexander Sagaydak, Anna Sagaydak

State University of Land Use Planning, Russian Federation

The modern stage of Land Tenure development in Russia is featured by appearance of agricultural holding corporations and increasing size of private farms due to land consolidation. Development of Land Tenure in Russia is mostly depended on Regional Land Policies. One of the successful examples of them is the Republic of Kalmykia’s Land Policy. In the Republic of Kalmykia we can observe a unique trend, which is in the increase in the number of private farms and their average size. The following measures must be implemented to strengthen sustainability of Land Tenure development: land legislation must be improved both at federal and regional level; the institutional framework for implementation of “Land Lord-Tenant” system must be introduced; training programs related to Land Tenure development must be initiated; the pilot projects focused on Land Tenure development should be launched to make demonstration effect; Land Tenure development experience should be collected and disseminated.
