Speaking at a meeting of the Economic Reforms Committee, President Viktor Yanukovych has instructed to prepare a package of bills that would help citizens to speed up the procedure of registering their land ownership.

"We must make sure that the State Land Registrar and the State Real Estate exchange information from their registers automatically and promptly, without the participation of citizens, so that they were registering citizens' land ownership rights quickly. The Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Ukraine and the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine must urgently prepare the necessary legislation," Viktor Yanukovych said.

He expressed confidence that the Law On State Land Cadastre adopted by the Parliament would lay the foundation for a unified state registry of lands, their purpose, and their quantitative and qualitative characteristics.

At the same time, President Yanukovych said, despite its positive points the law has some faults.

Among these faults Viktor Yanukovych named the fact that the law requires citizens to re-obtain land ownership technical documentation, if they received it before 2004 without the corresponding geodetic coordinates on the ground, or if land ownership papers are lost. "It costs about 2000 hryvnias, but the law does not say anything about who covers the expense of making the said documents – the citizen of the state. I think that if the state has already recognized citizens’ land ownership by providing him with the relevant state certificate, demanding the citizen to bear additional costs to prove this ownership is illegal," he said.

The President instructed Minister of Finance Fedir Yaroshenko and Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food Mykola Prysyazhnyuk to provide the funds necessary for making land documents for these citizens in the State Budget of Ukraine.

"In addition, we must prevent parallel keeping of two state registers – the land cadaster and the state register of real estate rights, which contain identical information and for extracts from which citizens will be required to pay in order to confirm their land ownership rights," Viktor Yanukovych said.
