Certificate of non-involvement according to §1026 BGB - division of the serving property

A plot of land that is divided into two or more parts may, under certain conditions, be exempted from the easement. If, according to the land register, the easement is only limited to a certain area, the parts of the property that lie outside this area are not affected by the easement. For this purpose, the Land Registry Office will issue a certificate.

For the land registry or a notary, it is not always clear which parts of the property are affected or not affected by easements, because the permits often refer to historical parcel names. The Land Registry Office can use its documents to determine which current parcels are affected by the easement. With a certificate (certificate of non-concern), the land registry can write off the unaffected part of the property free of encumbrances.

The application of § 1026 BGB is limited exclusively to easements (i.e. rights in section II of a land register), not to rights registered in section III (no real estate liens such as mortgages or land charges)

Process flow

The aim of the procedure is to clarify which new parcels of land are actually affected by a land registry right (Section II of the Land Register) after a subdivision. If a parcel of land is outside the area of the encumbrance, the certificate issued can then be used to apply for the cancellation of the right, or the depreciation free of encumbrances, at the Land Registry:

  • On the one hand, the application determines the current parcel to be examined and, on the other hand, the right concerned in the land register.
  • On the basis of the registration permit and the cadastral documents, it is examined which current parcels of land are affected by the right.
  • This concern or non-concern is communicated in writing to the applicant in a certificate issued by the Land Registry Office.
  • If the applicant is not affected, the applicant can use the certificate from the cadastral office to apply for the cancellation of the right to the examined parcel or the depreciation free of encumbrances at the competent land registry office.
  • Otherwise, the persons concerned must work with the person to whom the right is assigned for a deletion permit or release from prison.
