Abstract [en]

The most active sector of the real property market in Belarus deals with privately ownedapartments (mainly in multi-stored buildings), whereas the land market is regarded asundeveloped and strongly regulated by the state. This paper addresses purchase as a specificcase of property transfer with special emphasis on the available mortgage system. It is alsoaimed at identifying the obstacles in property purchasing, particularly in its organisationalframework that hinder development of the real property market.Specifically the paper considers purchase of a land plot with a single-family house on it bothheld in private ownership by the same owner. The purchase process is presented in UnifiedModelling Language (UML) notion and the developed models are supplemented withexplanatory text.Moreover, the paper assesses transaction cost (expressed in time term) of this particularpurchase for the parties involved (i.e. seller and buyer) and compares it with the similar datafor several European countries taken from “Doing Business in 2005” (World Bank 2004). Italso argues that long administrative procedures for property purchase extend the grounds forcorruption as parties may try to speed up the process by bribing public officials.
