online next week
To provide real estate register,
tracking, and fee calculation
The Ministry of Finance’s Property Registry will launch three online services on Tuesday, one of them paid and the two others free of charge.
Georges Maarawi, Director General of the Registry, said: “The first service allows citizens to check the title register of properties (ifada ikariya) and print it out through a mobile phone or a computer.” This service will cost LL7,500 ($5), and an additional LL1,000 ($0.66) for application submittal. Until now, the service has been available only on premises.
The second service allows users to track paperwork, whether the procedure was stopped, and the reasons behind it.
The third service helps citizens calculate the value of different property fees, and includes templates of the documents needed to carry out each procedure.
Maarawi said: “The goal behind these electronic services is to facilitate procedures and give a comprehensive idea of what can be done and how.”
The registry is planning other services as well. “This is just the beginning, as we are planning services that will help expedite procedures,” he said.
Users will be able to log on to www.lrc.gov.lb to check the services.
