Apply for registration in the land register


Owner or new owner, after

  • you have agreed with the seller on the change of ownership ("conveyance of the property") and
  • the new ownership structure is entered in the land register.

The agreement on the transfer of ownership must be declared before a notary. It may 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. inheriting a property).

Encumbrances and restrictions that lie on the property, such as easements, conveyance notices, mortgages, 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. mortgages, easements).

You must apply for registration in the land register at the Land Registry. If the conditions for registration are met, the Land Registry Office carries out the registration.

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

Please contact a notary for more information. They will give you information on the procedure and the documents you need tailored to your situation.

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

The conditions 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)
  • Registration authorisation
  • Authorisation (the person whose right is affected by the registration)
  • In case of transfer of ownership of property - conveyance
  • compliance with special formal requirements

Depending on the individual case

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

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