6.1.3 Expected Benefits of the Project
The direct benefit of this project will be the provision of systems at the District Land Offices and County Land Offices which will support the integration of the property boundary information (cadastral maps) with the property sheet records (legal and administrative data). These systems will also support the loading of the digital compensation data, which is currently stored on a variety of temporary media, and is therefore subject to uncertainty and potential loss or damage. There are also wider benefits to the project and to Hungary.
Specific benefits to the Land registration sector:
- provide safe, secure and up to date management of land registration records.
- support the modernisation process through formulating technically, operationally, legally, and financially sound computerisation strategies.
- support the land compensation programme through inclusion of the new property units at the earliest opportunity.
- provide downstream support for land consolidation (practical. legal and operational).
- support the development of national standards, and resolve issues concerned with ownership and copyright of data
- support the data loading and conversion of cadastral map data
- consider the organisational framework best suited to the future needs of Hungary
- examine methods and adopt procedures oriented towards significant cost recovery of operations.
- support the provision of information services and put in place the required infrastructure.
- examine the present legal framework and seek to simplify the accepted practices.
- provide comprehensive education and training.
Specific benefits to support the economic transition process
The modernisation of the Land Registration Sector will support the safe and secure management of the land and property ownership records (legal & administrative records and cadastral maps). This will provide for the security of title to land and property, support security for credit purposes, develop the private sector conveyancing capabilities, stimulate land markets and will maintain the state as the absolute guarantor of title. At the same time, the rich national asset of the land and property records will be developed to support the market transition process through the provision of information, services and derived products to other governmental sectors, NGO's local government and private and public enterprises.
