All this with the manifest interest of having a reliable registration system for real estate in the country (real folio) and the control of the changes experienced by their ownership, their liens, boundary modifications and remeasurements; ensuring that said records are computerized and that the cadastral location of the parcels is consistent with the literal description of the registered deeds.
