Land register: Registration


The land register serves the legal transactions with land. In particular, the land registers record the ownership structure and the private-law encumbrances of the land such as rights of way, mortgages, land or pension debts.

Anyone who demonstrates a legitimate interest can inspect the land register or apply for copies (subject to a fee).

If, for example, ownership of a property is to be transferred, i.e. a property is to be bought or sold or a mortgage on a property is to be created, an entry in the land register is required.

Jurisdiction lies with the district court.

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

Documents are required. Please contact the competent authority.

Fees apply. These are based on the respective business value. Please contact the competent authority.

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the competent authority.
