The calculation of the periods will resume the day after this exceptional regime comes to an end.

Specifically, the Property Registrars have explained that the expiry dates for filing entries, preventive annotations, legal notices, marginal notes and any other registry entries subject to cancellation due to the passage of time have been suspended.
