The Lebanese Government, managed through the Directorate General of Land Registry and Cadastre (DLRC) of the Ministry of Finance, is responsible for the collection of taxes on an estimated 2.5 million properties spread across eight registration offices in Lebanon. The goal of the project was to improve accessibility, efficiency and transparency in property transactions in the Land of the Cedars.

The Integrated Title Registry System (ITRS) was developed and implemented in all registry offices, which allowed land registrars to electronically manage property taxes. The system allowed archiving on microfilm as well as the creation of electronic copies of all property titles, preserving the title history ofLebanon since 1926. Moreover, the system digitized all work done by land registrars, increasing their efficiency and decreasing the delays to land transactions. Lawyers / notaries were, for the first time, able to electronically search for title registrations.

The system allowed the government to increase revenues linked to land transactions and to cover a part of the costs linked to its role of fiduciary guarantor of these transactions.
