Land register; request for a transcript or printout
Upon request, the land registry will issue copies or printouts from the land register and the land file.
If you are entitled to inspect the land register or the land file on the basis of a legitimate interest (see Land Register, Inspection), you can request the land registry to issue a copy of the land register. If you wish, the copy can be certified by the land registry.
In the states which - like Bavaria - keep the land register by machine, the printout takes the place of the transcript and the official printout takes the place of the certified transcript. The official printout is provided with an official seal or stamp and is equivalent to a certified copy.
Land register excerpts can be requested either in person upon presentation of the identity card or passport, in writing or by fax (but not by e-mail) or online with personal BayernID at the respective competent land registry office or district court. As a rule, land register excerpts cannot be prepared and sent on the basis of a telephone application, as the existence of a legitimate interest pursuant to Section 12 (GBO) would not be verifiable by the land registry in this case.
The application can be made informally or using the form provided here or online at the relevant land registry office.
The application should contain the land registry office. If this is not known, the parcel number or an exact location designation can also be specified.
Increasingly, fee-based services are being offered on various Internet sites to provide owners with land register printouts. The land registry has nothing to do with these service providers. The processing fee due there is often significantly higher than the actual court fees incurred.
You can request your land register printout at any time directly from the land registry using the form, stating your legitimate interest.
