YEREVAN, September 4. / ARKA /. Armenian Geodesy and Cartography non-commercial government organization, overseen by the State Committee of Real Estate Cadastre, will train property measuring specialists from all provincial centers and large communities of Armenia, Ashot Musayan, deputy head of the State Committee of Real Estate Cadastre, said Tuesday. He said the decision was prompted by high prices set outside the capital city by private companies
“Our goal is to prevent unjustified rise in prices for property measurements, imposed often by private firms. We are receiving many complaints, especially from the regions of Armenia that private companies demand unreasonably high payment for their services,” Musayan reporters Tuesday.
He said the State Cadastre is ready to provide appropriate licenses and recruit experts nominated by regional authorities and train them.
“When they are named, we will conduct special training courses for them and after the exams they will be able to get to work,” he added.
Musayan said the prices of services provided by specialists from Geodesy and Cartography are well below the prices demanded by private companies.
He said for example private companies charge 15,000-20,000 drams for measuring an apartment in a residential buildings, while experts from Geodesy and Cartography charge only 100 drams per one square meter.
He said in January 2012the agency closed its territorial subdivisions replacing them with service offices, reducing the red tape,
Musayan said persons with electronic signatures now have the opportunity to submit documents on-line through the official website of the State Committee of Real Estate Cadastre without having to visit the agency. ---0---
