The Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance have changed the instruction on the fees paid for notarial acts and actions in granting ownership. As citizens have recently expressed ambiguity and many complaints regarding the documents and procedures followed by notaries for property registration or even the transfer of ownership from one entity to another. In this instruction published yesterday in the Official Gazette are included some tariffs for new services that were not foreseen in the previous one, such as online verification of the legal status of ownership in the electronic register of real estate. Specifically for this service, the subject will pay 600 lekë, while here are added 700 lekë review and consultation of the card that contains all the data of the property for which the certificate will be made. “The fee for online verification and authenticity of ownership will be 600 lekë, as well as the consultation of the property card and other real estate data with a fee of 700 lekë. "Initially, a request will be made from the notary offices for the registration of legal actions in the State Cadastre Agency (ANA) and the fee for this service will be 4,000 ALL", it is stated in the document. The amendments aim to make the notary offices function as a single service point after the request for registration of legal actions in the State Cadastre Agency, to also avoid the owners dragging through the offices for verification and authentication of his property. "Even for cases of transfer of immovable ownership, the contract made with the notary will no longer be submitted to the immovable property registration offices, but all procedures will be performed at the notary offices from the application until the issuance of the new property card for the buyer. The new services also reflect the completion of the online mortgage register ", the document states.
