Initial Registrations and Correction Deadlines
Initial registrations are the ones that appear in the cadastral book of a region, as transferred from the cadastral tables, after the completion of the cadastral survey and before the commencement of the Cadastre’s operation in that specific region. Every posterior registration of a right is based on the initial registrations.
In case there is an inaccurate Initial registration it is possible to dispute and correct it partially or in the whole within seven (7) years from the date when the Cadastral Office began operating in a specific region. This deadline applies to local residents, the Greek State, people residing abroad or people who work permanently abroad (Law 4361/2016).   

Especially for regions included in the cadastral survey programs of years 1997-1999, the deadline mentioned above is fourteen years (14) years for local residents, the Greek State  and people residing abroad or people who work permanently abroad (Law 4361/2016).

Correction Procedures

The type of error the Initial registration contains also defines the correction procedure. More specifically, the law distinguishes between the cases which require an irrevocable judicial decision and the ones that are due to an obvious error and can be corrected administratively, without judicial intervention but with a decision by the Head of the Cadastral Office.
After the expiry of the deadlines mentioned above, the Initial registrations become final and they produce an irrefutable presumption, meaning changes in their content are prohibitted.

The correction deadline begins when the decision of Ministry of Environment & Energy, with which the entry into force of the Cadastre in the surveyed region is decided, is published in the Government Gazette.

Properties recorded to belong to an “Unknown Owner”
Properties (or rights on properties) which for any reason were not declared during the cadastral survey are recorded in the cadastral database as belonging to an “Unknown Owner”. For the correction of the initial registrations of “Unknown Owner” into a known owner, the same procedures –judicial or administrative correspondingly depending on the case– with the ones for the erroneous registrations stand. Specifically, the interested party should comply with the correction procedures that are laid down, after he/she has already located their property.
