What does this mean?

According to Law 4495/17, every transfer of a real estate property must be accompanied by an engineer’s solemn declaration. In this declaration, the engineer confirms that the property does not violate any urban planning provisions and has been constructed according to the relevant building permit. The engineer’s certificate is also required for transferring plots of land.


The certificate is valid for two (2) months and is submitted to the electronic system of the Technical Chamber of Greece before the drafting of contracts. Each certificate has a unique number related to the specific property and is attached to the contract.
