Entry in the land register


Owner or new owner, after

  • you have reached an agreement with the seller on the change of ownership ("abandonment of the property") and
  • the new ownership structure is registered in the land register.

In this case, the agreement on the transfer of ownership must be declared before a notary. It can also be declared in a court settlement or in a legally confirmed insolvency plan.

Registration in the land register is also required for other forms of transfer of ownership (e.g. when inheriting a property).

Encumbrances and restrictions that lie on the property, such as easements, priority notices of conveyance, liens, land charges or mortgages must also be entered in the land register.

The registration is arranged by the notary.

The land register provides information about the ownership of a property and the encumbrances that may lie on the property (e.g. liens, easements).

The requirements for registration are usually:

  • Application for registration
  • Eligibility to apply (anyone in whose favour the registration is to be made or whose right is affected by the registration)
  • Authorisation to register
  • Authorisation authority (the person whose right is affected by the registration)
  • In the case of transfer of ownership of the property - conveyance
  • compliance with special formal requirements

Depending on the individual case

  • additional documents are required (e.g. proof of inheritance, permits, certificates of first refusal, tax clearance certificate) or
  • the land register must first be corrected before the registration is applied for (e.g. by registering the heirs of a deceased owner).
  • Identity card or passport
  • Submission of registration documents as public or publicly certified documents

There are costs for the activity of the notary and the entry in the land register. The amount of the costs is largely determined by the amount of the purchase price.

depending on the workload of the responsible land registry

Contact the land registry office of the district court where the land register for the property is kept.

You must apply for registration in the land register at the land registry. If the conditions for registration are met, the Land Registry will make the entry.

Once the registration has been made, the Land Registry notifies the notary submitting the application, the applicant, the registered owner and all persons identified in the land register in whose favour the registration is made or whose rights are affected by it.

Find out more about this from a notary or notary. They will provide you with information on the procedure and the documents you need tailored to your situation.
