The registration of wells, boreholes and other groundwater facilities in private properties will be extended due to the pandemic. The aim is to avoid the movement and collection of people in front of the counters of the basin directorates. Initially, the deadline was November 27th 2020 but the parliament adopted the decision to extend the deadline to November 28th 2022 at a first reading today.
All property owners who have wells, boreholes, drainages and other facilities for groundwater extraction in their properties have to register them with the respective basin directorate. The registration is mandatory and the deadline is November 27, 2020.
More good news for Bulgaria and again a demonstration that Bulgarian real estate is a very worthwhile investment to base your small to medium enterprise (SME) in Bulgaria.

In the third quarter of 2012 the correlation between debt and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was 18,7%.
Britons with property in Bulgaria are worried not about losing their real estate because of legal requirements, reports the online edition propertywire.com. Leading consultancy firms in the UK warn that because of the re-registration of companies British owners risk being fined or even losing their assets in this country.
Consultants John Howe & Co. explained that many Britons with Bulgarian property do not realise the complexity of the Bulgarian legal system and its potential impact on them. The managing partner of the firm John Howe is concerned by the requirement for re-registration of companies. Howe points out that until recently, individuals could not buy property in the country and had to register a company in order to purchase Bulgarian real estate. However, many British people have not been aware that they need to re-register and have missed the deadline for it, and as a result their trading activity has been cancelled and they have not been able to dispose of their assets.
The company announced that it had found a way to solve the issue with British owners of Bulgaria property who missed re-registration, so you they don’t lose their investment. Consultants say there is no accurate statistics on the number of British residents living permanently or temporarily in Bulgaria. According to the British Embassy there are about 8-9 thousand people, who work in the country, others have bought property and live permanently, while others only spend their holidays in the country.
