Entry in the land register

Service Description

You become the new owner of the property after

  • you have reached an agreement with the seller on the change of ownership ("conveyance of the property") and
  • the new ownership structure has been entered in the land register.

The agreement on the transfer of ownership must be declared before a notary public. 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. inheritance of a property).

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

The notary arranges for the entry.

The land register provides information on the ownership of a property and any encumbrances that may be on the property (e.g. mortgages, easements).
