Uniform land certificate replaced multiple acts

The Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated July, 24, 2018 No ЗРУ-487 “On Introduction of Changes and Amendments to the Certain Legislative Acts of the Republic of Uzbekistan aimed at Improvement of Land Legislation” has entered amendments to Land Code and Code on Administrative Responsibility as well as to Laws “On the State Land Cadastre” and “On State Cadastres“.

According to the above Law, the territorial bodies of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadastre were directly named as the only government organ responsible for the state registration of rights to land plots and issue of the uniform Certificate. Formerly a variety of rights to the land had to be evidenced by State Deeds in respect to each appropriate type of rights. The new Law also provided that state registration of rights to land plots shall be performed within 2 days. Earlier the procedure could last up to 10 days.
