The Public Property Registry is a very useful tool, as it provides legal certainty to interested persons. If it did not exist, a property would live in a state of legal uncertainty in regards to real estate ownership.

You might wonder what is the purpose of a Public Property Registry? Its main objective is to offer publicity of legal acts in order to provide legal certainty to third parties.

Registration was born from the need to bring an account to each property holder. When uncertainty fell on real estate, in such a way that it was impossible to know the real situation, the Registry became a means of providing legal rights of ownership.
