Soil benchmark card - extract/information

The offices of the expert committees,which are set up by the regional directorates of the State Office for Geoinformation and Surveying of Lower Saxony, provide information to everyone on soil benchmarks. The information is provided orally, in writing, by delivery on a data carrier (CD or DVD) or by making it available on the Internet.

The expert committees and the Upper Expert Committee for Land Values in Lower Saxony each year determine soil benchmarks.

Soil benchmarks serve the transparency of the property market. They are determined on the basis of the purchase price collection. In this regard, only purchase prices which have been obtained in ordinary business transactions without regard to unusual and personal circumstances must be taken into account.

Soil benchmarks shall be determined at least for land ready for construction. In built-up areas, soil benchmarks shall be determined with the value that would result if the soil were undeveloped. In Lower Saxony, with the exception of some county-free cities, there are also land benchmarks for agricultural land.
