The current Municipal Ordinance for Cemeteries stipulates the payment of an annual tax for each grave based on maintenance of the site where it is located.
As is the case with any urban area, cemeteries require maintenance of the gardens along with appropriate cleaning and security services. This payment goes towards providing for these services.

The payment can be made:

  • By direct debit
  • In the customer services department of our offices

According to Municipal Ordinance, ownership of a grave must fall to a living person.

The transfer of ownership of graves, which hold the same status as other goods and property, is governed by Inheritance Law and based on whether the inheritance is testate (included in a will) or intestate (not included in a will).

Other types of transfer include:

  • Provisional: when no direct inheritance can be proved with regard to the owner
  • Transfer between relatives when the grave is transferred while the owner is still alive
  • Transfer by appointment when the new owner is appointed by the previous owner

  • Duplicate in the case of loss of the title deed for the grave
  • Appointment of a beneficiary when a successor is named
