It used to take several trips – and lots of stress – getting the papers she needed to help clients buy and sell their property.
But now, Mimoza Sadushaj, an Albanian notary, has access to everything she needs – in minutes.
“The best thing is that we are saving time,” Mimoza said recently from her private office in Tirana, where she can finally access Albania’s land and property registration records online, for the very first time.
“Before, we had to go to back and forth to the land registry office two or three times,” she added.
The new online service is part of a government-led Land Administration and Management Project, aimed at helping Albania’s land and home owners to secure and better use their property rights, fundamental to creating well-functioning real estate markets.
