  2. The applicant must approach and pay the property registration fees at Real Estate Registry.
  3. Refer to the “Fees” section of this procedure for the same.
  4. The Egyptian Surveying Authority inspects the property and prepares a report of its findings, called kashf tahdeed, that is delivered to the Measurement Department for approval. Once approved, the report is sent to the Real Estate Registry.
  5. The Real Estate Registry conducts a technical and legal review of the request and ensures the existing cadastral information matches that of the property being registered. Once the review has taken place, the documents are marked as "approved to be authenticated" (maqbul lilshahr) and released to the parties together with a stamped form that will later be used to draft the sales contract.
  6. The parties' lawyer drafts a sales contract (called mashroa moharar) on the stamped form obtained at the Real Estate Registry. The contract is submitted to the Lawyers' Syndicate for verification. The lawyer who drafts the contract reports his/her syndicate identification number on the form and the Lawyers' Syndicate verifies if the lawyer is indeed a registered member. The verification fees are based on the property value, with a maximum of EGP 5,000.
  7. After collecting the contract from the Lawyers' Syndicate, the parties submit it the Real Estate Registry for review. Once the review has taken place, the contract is marked as "approved to be registered" (saleh lilshahr).
  8. Once the contract is marked as "approved to be registered", the parties proceed before the competent public official (mowathiq) to sign and authenticate it.
  9. The buyer submits the authenticated contract to the main office of the Real Estate Registry for final approval. Once the Registry has granted its approval, a registration number is issued and the contract is marked as transcribed for transmission (naqil liltakleef). The buyer receives a copy of the registered contract and the registration process is complete.
