Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the current situation, to identify the challenges it faces and the trends the real estate registration system has in the Republic of North Macedonia. This issue is notable for its relevance, given that property rights continue to maintain a key place in the human rights corpus as an economic right, with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 17) and the European Convention on Human Rights (Article 1 of Protocol 1 to the Convention) at the international level, but also to the Constitution of the Republic of North Macedonia (Article 30), at the domestic level. When it comes to immovable ownership, the one based on legal work is gained by registering in the public register for real estate registration – the Cadastre. It is a public book in which property and the other real property rights are registered, which is managed and maintained through the Agency for Real Estate Cadastre (Agency). The adoption of the Law on Real Estate Cadastre in 2013, and the amendments that followed it, proved the legislator’s intention to increase efficiency, effectiveness and accuracy in maintaining cadastral plans in direction of digitizing and updating them. To this end, the Government of North Macedonia has approved the Strategic Plan of the Agency for the period 2020-2022 reflects the priorities and goals, as well as the planned reform processes in the areas under the competence of the Agency for a period of three years, in compliance with the Program of the Government of North Macedonia and its strategic priorities.
