April 24, 2020 / ELRA Secretariat
ELRA launched a study on the special measures implemented in the Land Registries in Europe due to the unusual situation COVID-19.
Being a current topic of common interest, it was considered that sharing experiences and best practices could help Land Registries to overcome the difficult situation that Europe is facing.
For that purpose, ELRA Members answered a four-question survey focused in 4 main areas: organisational, legal, economic and work-load statistical areas.
As a conclusion, it can be highlighted that most countries noted a decrease in the number of applications, customers, and activities. The differences between countries depends on their counter-COVID 19 policy, how advanced they are in new technologies and the level of damage by the virus.
