Land Registry: Registration Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The land register is used for legal traffic with land. In particular, the land registers record the ownership and private law burdens of land such as right-of-way, mortgages, land or pension debts.

Anyone who expresses a legitimate interest can consult the land register or apply for copies (subject to a fee) from it.

If, for example, ownership of a plot of land is to be transferred, i.e. a property is to be bought or sold or a land lien is to be ordered, a registration in the land register is required.

Documents are required. Please contact the appropriate body.


  • The applicant is the owner of the land.
  • The applicant's right is affected by this registration.
  • When transferring ownership of a property, the agreement on the change of law must be demonstrated in notarial form.
  • All authorisations and declarations must be in the form of public or publicly certified documents.
