    Time is recorded in calendar days. The measure captures the median duration that property lawyers, notaries or registry officials indicate is necessary in practice to complete a procedure with minimum follow-up with government agencies and no extra payments. It is assumed that the minimum time required for each procedure is 1 day, except for procedures that can be fully completed online, for which the time required is recorded as half a day.
