Cadastre and Registry Optimisation

Cadastre and Registry audit and regularisation

What is Cadastre and Registry Optimisation?

This means checking and regularising the cadastre and registry status of a real-estate asset.

The cadastre and registry optimisation consists of checking and, if needed, regularising the status of a real-estate asset in the land registry and cadastre for it to be rightly described, identified and processed and claiming, where appropriate, any undue taxes.

We are experts in optimising all types of real-estate assets in the cadastre and land registry with teams who specialise in locating and identifying the assets and applying the appropriate regulations that will enable tax savings and ensure that the physical reality matches the legal reality as well as the ownership in the land registry.

Who needs it?

All types of real-estate owners.

The cadastre value is a value estimated by a public agency by applying the criteria set forth in the local Values report of the area the asset is in. To determine the cadastre value, we apply different regulations such as Spanish Royal Decree 1020/1993 of 25 June that passes the technical valuation rules and the framework for the values of land and buildings to determine the cadastre value of urban properties, as well as Spanish Royal Decree 1464/2007 of 2 November that adopts the technical rules on cadastre valuation for properties with special specifications.

Many taxes are linked to the cadastre value:

  • Property Tax
  • Urban Land Value Tax (capital gain)
  • Wealth Tax
  • Transfer Tax and Stamp Duty
  • Personal Income Tax

If the cadastre value does not reflect the reality, it may mean you are paying extra taxes, which means that by regularising the value, you may save a lot of money.

A good cadastre and registry audit requires deep, reliable and verifiable knowledge of the real-estate sector and the different variables that can affect the cadastre value. In this regard, the experience and sheer volume of all the appraisals made by GLOVAL make us an expert company in this type of appraisals. The qualified staff who is devoted to preparing this type of appraisal reports depending on the type and use of the property is made up of architects, architectural technicians, construction engineers and agricultural engineers.

It is essential to provide the receipt for the Property Tax and the Property Deed, depending on the type of audit required, to check that the legal reality matches the physical reality of the property. If the property has undergone renovations, it would be advisable to have the Building Work Permit and the relevant Project.
