Ktimatologio S.A. and World Council of Hellenes Abroad have entered cooperation to better inform the members of the Omogenia on the implementation of the national cadastre in 107 additional regions in a process launched on June 17 to be completed on December 30 for the Greeks abroad.
SAE officials from the seven SAE Regions, Canada, United States, Central and South America, Europe, former Soviet Union countries, Africa, Middle East, Oceania and Far East attended a three-day training programme at the Ktimatologio S.A. main offices in Athens on July 16-18.
The training was aimed at familiarizing them with the filling out of ownership declarations to be able to provide basic directions to Greek expatriates in the process of filling out the form. For the record, the declaration can only be filled out by the interested parties and not by SAE or Ktimatologio S.A.
Printed information material will be available soon in all SAE regional offices for the representatives of the organized Greek communities that will undertake to have it distributed to federations, communities and individual expatriates. The material in question is also available in printable form on the website: www.ktimatologio.gr.
Information material will also be available to delegates attending SAE Regional Conventions to take place in the fall in Canada, United States, Chile, Germany, Russia, Egypt and Australia.
Other institutions will also provide similar information material after consultation with Ktimatologio S.A.
Aside from the general information available at regional SAE offices, the Greek expatriates in particular will be able to contact the Ktimatologio S.A. 24-hour hotline by dialing the telephone number: 0030 210 6505600 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get answers to technical questions.
Ktimatologio S.A. Board President Christos Goulas stated: “Greece proceeds with the implementation of the National Cadastre in 107 additional regions. We call on our expatriates to declare the real estate property they own in these regions by December 30th starting now and not wait for the last minute to do so, thus participating in a project of national range necessary to our country. The ownership declaration is mandatory and the procedure is simple.
Ktimatologio S.A. is considering all possible ways to come closer to Greek expatriates and help them settle permanently their real estate property back home. We thank the World Council of Hellenes Abroad for its substantive service in briefing the expatriates and are looking forward to continuing the good effort underway”.
SAE President Stefanos P. Tamvakis stressed: “The significant effort taking place at home with the national cadastre project concerns us all, even those of us born and living abroad who own real estate in Greece. Within our powers, SAE and our regional offices will assist in this effort in the immediate future by providing information material and general directions both at our offices and during the regional conventions. I believe that this is yet another way for SAE to display its usefulness to the Greek State and to each of us who live abroad.”
