The Electronic Building ​​Identity​ (EBI)​​ aspires to contribute to a historic change ​in property management ​to the benefit of ​the ​property owners. Although ​originally ​described in the L.3843/2010 ​as a new institution, due to the complexity​​ and the 1.jpgneed for clarification of ​many law provisions and their application in practice, it hasn't​ been applied till today.

​The EBI is the process that should be followed in order to form an organized electronic file for each property or building. More ​specifically through​ the EBI ​there will be a ​complete ​report of the data of each property​, including its current status​, its history and ​the ​potential legality issues​. ​​The EBI won't affect the citizens' right to legalise their properties according to the laws already in force.

The ​information provided so far regarding the procedure of applying for a EBI is as follows:

  • First of all​,​ the owners, or their authorized representatives, will have at their disposal a​​ 10 years​ timescale (maximum)​ to submit ​their property information ​to the electronic platform (​actual surfaces, building capacity, property rights, construction plans, relevant licenses, certificates etc.)
  • The report and the submission of the application will be conducted by a certified civil engineer after a​n inspection of the property.
  • ​In case of a property transfer the Engineer's Legality Certificate -which is required for the time being- ​​will be replaced by the Certificate ​o​f Building Integrity. Severe punishment​ will be imposed for providing false information at the electronic property database.
  • The property owners who have  already submitted legalisation declarations pursuant the laws 4178/2013,​​ 4014/2011, 3843/2010 ​​​will have to submit their application for en EBI within five years, with a minimum or ​with no​ cost, issue which ​is about to be ​​clarified, ​​when the relevant law is voted as expected till the end of October.
