They were particularly pleased with the fact that the new system will shorten the time for cadastral surveys of municipalities from six and a half years to about two years.

Organising the cadastre is a precondition for cities to develop and, shortening processing time is very important, said MP Anamarija Blažević (HDZ).

Predrag Štromar (HNS, HSU and independent MPs group) underscored that unorganised land registers are an obstacle to investments.

“The law is a step forward,” agreed Urša Raukar Gamulin (We Can!).

However, the law can only produce results if the Land Registers Act is also amended, she said.

HDZ whip Branko Bačić said that of the 3,360 cadastre municipalities in Croatia about 15% or 414 are in the process of new measurements and about 200 have already completed them.

We expect about 9.7% of Croatian territory to be measured in the next 10 years, which will be identified as building lots and encompass 6.5 million cadastre cells, which is 42% of all cadastre cells in the country, said Bačić.

Lawmakers also welcomed the abolishment of the majority of fees for data use.

The law foresees abolishing fees when taking out extracts, certificates and photocopies of data from state land survey documents, real estate cadastres and building registers and when using data via network services, which will leave the state budget without about HRK 9.5 million a year.

That is pittance compared to the savings to be made by citizens who so far have had a hard time trying to set their real estate documents in order, said Barbara Antolić Vupora (SDP).

The State-Secretary in the Ministry of Physical Planning, Dunja Magaš, said the law would create a joint computer framework for land registers and the cadastre and in that way reduce the number of procedures and processing time.
