Greek land ownership. "This land is my land, this land is your land"

Google earth satellites can survey and pin point lots and even trees throughout the globe. But Greece's land title recording and registration system is still from the middle ages when cars, let alone spaceships, did not exist. Mostly handwritten ledgers recorded, not by map, block and lot number - as in the US, but by names. Go to the County Recorder of Deeds office in a US State and you can pull the deed documents of any property, organized by a series of numbers and maps. The inconsistency in recording can result in a number of relatives or neighbors disputing your Greek property ownership claims, after you purchase it. The Ktimatologio (an attempt to properly map and register land - funded by the EU) is still a long way from completion. This creates great danger and since there is no Title Insurance in Greece, very careful title search is required before you buy any land. We have conducted title analysis and searches in all of Greece for over 25 years.
