Note GCCA issues an official document – a sketch of a land property or a sketch of a building, certifying to all administrative and judicial authorities and bodies with public functions that the data on property boundaries, identifier, basic cadastral data and data on property rights are registered in the approved current cadastral map and cadastral registers. The service may be requested and received by any interested party, regardless of whether the party is the property owner or not. The service may be received on site at a GCCO by a person who is not the actual applicant in case that the recipient has been provisionally indicated in the application, or holds a certificate of attorney issued on behalf of the property owner. Sketches that are necessary for the needs of notarial proceedings may be provided to a notary public via a remote access to the information system of the cadastre and property register. These have the force of an official document issued by the GCCA.Sketches of land properties and sketches of buildings are also issued by professionals certified to perform cadastral activities pursuant to Art. 55, Para 7 and Para 8, and Art. 56 of the Cadastre and Property Register Act.A detailed list is provided here:
Workflow The application may be submitted through the CAIS Portal of GCCA (a registration is required) or on site at a regional GCCO of choice, independent on the property location. The application through CAIS for registered users is done in two methods: WITHOUT AN ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE – in this case, the paper document can be picked up only on site at the selected GCCO; WITH AN ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE – in this case, the application gets signed with a qualified electronic signature, meaning that the final output is an electronic document uploaded into the applicant’s profile in CAIS. When applying for the service on site at a GCCO, the application is filled in electronically by an employee of the respective GCCO – no provisionally filled application is required in such cases. If the general and specific requirements for the application contents are met, and it is supplemented by the required documentation, the request is registered in the records-keeping system. The Head of the GCCO, or another expert employee authorized by the Head of the GCCO, resolves the application for service implementation and submits it to the officer in charge of conducting the service. In cases of flaws in the application (i.e., lack of legal interest on behalf of the applicant, missing details/data on paid fees, etc.) the administrative body notifies in written the applicant, with further instructions on resolving the deficiencies in a 14-day period (Art. 19, Para 2 of Ordinance No RD-02-20-4/October 11, 2016 for Provision of services from the cadastral map and the cadastral registers). The time period for pronouncement begin to run from the date on which the irregularities are remedied. The application is submitted to the employee performing the service. The sketch is delivered to the applicant in the way indicated in the application when ready. When submitting an application that provides new data and documents required to eliminate any deficiencies identified, no fees are charged again. Exceptions are cases in which incorrectly calculated state fees indicated as a deficiency and therefore a relevant surcharge is due by the applicant.
