Or does it have a mortgage or not? Thus, the citizen gets the answer to his questions .”
Minister Corum said, stressing that Tapu transactions will take place through the real value of the property: “Some people register the real value of their properties, and others provide false or incomplete values with the aim of tax evasion; Therefore, we will soon activate applications and systems that solve the issue of missing values.
