Registration of ownership of real estate (apartment / house) in the real estate register

Reading time: 5 min.

Registration of ownership of real estate (apartment / house) in the real estate register is a legal procedure that confirms your right to own and dispose of this property. It is mandatory for all real estate owners in Ukraine and guarantees the protection of their rights from encroachment by third parties.

 

Why is it important to register ownership of real estate?

There are several reasons why it is important to do this:

  • Protection of your rights. Registration in the real estate register is the only legal way to confirm your ownership of an apartment or house. This makes your property less vulnerable to fraud and misappropriation.
  • Ability to dispose of property. Without a registered title, you will not be able to sell, gift, inherit or mortgage your property.
  • Obtaining public services. Some government services, such as housing subsidies or registration benefits, are only available to property owners who have registered their right.
  • Reduction of risks when buying/selling. Registration of ownership makes the process of buying and selling real estate safer for both the buyer and the seller.

How to register ownership of real estate?

The process of registering ownership of real estate in Ukraine consists of several stages:

  1. Collection of necessary documents. The list of documents may vary depending on the type of real estate and the method of its acquisition. The main documents usually include:
  • Passport or ID card of the owner;
  • Legal document for real estate (purchase agreement, donation, certificate of ownership, etc.);
  • Technical passport for real estate;
  • Receipt for the payment of the state registration fee.
  1. Submission of documents. Documents for registration of ownership can be submitted:
  • In person to the state registrar at the location of the real estate;
  • Through an authorized person by power of attorney;
  • Online through the Diya ("Дія") electronic services portal.
  1. Review of documents. The state registrar has 5 working days to review documents and make a decision on registration.
  2. Obtaining an extract from the register. In the case of a positive decision, you will be issued an extract from the register of property rights to real estate, which is a confirmation of your ownership.

 

How long does it take to register ownership of real estate and how much does it cost?

Usually, the process of registering ownership of real estate takes 5 working days from the date of submission of documents. As of 2024, this is worth 0.1 of the living wage. It is also possible to speed up the process, but it will cost much more. For example, for registration within 2 working days, you will have to pay 1 subsistence minimum, and for registration within 2 hours, the administrative fee will be 5 subsistence minimums.
