In Albania, the process of the legalization of illegal constructions continues. Such phenomenon has seen an expansion, especially during the first part of this year.

So, according to the data published by the Agency of Legalization, Urbanization and Integration of Informal Areas, there are around 10 thousand households who have built their homes illegally, but who have managed to receive their property titles in the first months of 2017.

According to the Agency for Legalization of Properties, the total number of permits issues for this period is 10.266.

Meanwhile, by the end of 2017, it has been promised that this institution will distribute in total around 40 thousand legalization permits.

Meanwhile, the figures issued so far indicate that until the end of 2016, the number of legalized buildings amounts to 100 thousand as opposed to 450 thousand self declared ones. /
