Havana, Nov 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuba approved the policy of improving services and procedures of the housing system, published today in the Official Gazette of the Republic number 81.
The package of legal norms includes a decree and six resolutions, modifies existing regulations and incorporates others to unify housing procedures and establish the procedure for the issuance of cadastral certificates on the island.

In general, the policy seeks to raise the quality of care for the population and meet the growing demand, with seriousness and respect, says the local newspaper Granma.

According to the head of the Independent Legal Department of the Institute of Physical Planning (IPF), Diana Rosa Suárez, the procedure facilitates the processing of processes, by concentrating the efforts in the municipal Physical Planning directorates.

The new provisions include decree number 13 of 2020, in reference to the organization and operation of the national cadastre (real estate registry), and a joint resolution of the Ministry of Construction and the IPF, to repeal the previous provision on the updating process of property titles.

In addition, they contemplate five resolutions: 57, 58, 59, 60 and 151, related to the simplification of procedures in the sector, the procedure for the issuance of cadastral certifications, and the elimination of the technical document prepared by the here called architect of the community.

The president of the IPF, Samuel Rodiles, told the press that the housing procedures prior to the current policy lacked a comprehensive work strategy for the citizen. People had to appear before different entities, which generates discomfort and dissatisfaction and has a negative impact on the quality of the service provided, he said.

The IPF is the national entity subordinate to the Council of Ministers in charge of land use planning, urban planning and the cadastre, and regulator of functions in this regard in Cuba.
