Identity card of the applicant, if applicable, power of attorney of the represented personLand register designation, Complete land register designation (e.g. Vorstadt L 43 sheet 1234) Proof of legitimate interest , e.g. power of attorney of the owner, draft sales contract or enforcement order

Only those who have a legitimate interest can apply for an extract from the land register. This is the case if objective reasons can be given for the desired inspection, which make the pursuit of unauthorised purposes or mere curiosity seem impossible. Therefore, for example, creditors of the property owner who intend to enforce the property may inspect the land register. A pure interest in buying is not sufficient. Only those who are already in negotiations with the landowner have a legitimate interest in inspecting the land register. This must be proven - for example by presenting a power of attorney from the owner or a draft purchase agreement. The application is made either: in person at the legal application office of the land registry (opening hours from 09:00 to 12:30) - registration is not required. The extract as well as the cost accounting will be prepared and provided immediately. or in writing to the land registry. It is not possible to apply by telephone or e-mail. Also, the prepared extract from the land register cannot be sent by e-mail. ATTENTION: The Bremen land registry is currently closed to the public. Extracts from the land register must be requested in writing. A signed application and proof of legitimate interest must be submitted.

It serves to speed up the procedure if the complete property designation (e.g. VL 43 sheet 1234) is given. You will only receive information on the owner if you state a legitimate interest when making the enquiry. The respective entitled parties may be represented by an authorised representative. The power of attorney must be submitted in writing.
The application for an extract from the land register will be examined by the registrar of deeds at the office and granted if the requirements are met. The extract can be issued as a simple copy or as an official extract. If only a partial extract can be issued (e.g. because there is no legitimate interest in the registered encumbrances), it must be issued as an official extract (§ 45 Land Register ruling).
