The processing of property registration applications is congested

Property business transactions continue to be brisk and the number of pending title and rights of lease registrations has continued to grow. This has caused congestion in the processing of applications. At present, the processing times for title and rights of lease registrations are 4 months on average and for mortgaging applications 2 months on average from the receipt of the applications.

Please be patient, we will contact you when we start processing your application. Please contact our customer service only in very urgent cases. This will enable our staff to work on the increased demand and solutions as efficiently as possible, both in our customer service and in our property registration solution operations.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the congestion and will do our best to rectify the situation as soon as possible.
