June 18th, 2010, Tomasz Rychlicki

On 16 June 2010, the Polish Ministry of Justice introduced the Internet system of land registry/mortgages. It has now over 12.1 million of entries and the remaining 6 million is expected to be completed within two years. The Registry was introduced by the Regulation of the Minister of Justice on the establishment and operation of land registry in the computer system of 20 August 2003, Journal of Laws (Dziennik Ustaw) No. 162, item 1575 with later amendments. Browsing of a land/mortgages register is defined as a call on the monitor’s screen of the desired land register.
