In this blog post we will take your through the current procedures for obtaining the title deed as well as explaining what kind of information you find on the printed version of the deed.
We also want to point out very clearly that the printed version of the deed does not hold any other value than the paper it has been printed on.
You can see it as a kind of diploma and should you loose the printed version there will be no consequences.
Even if someone that you do not trust gets hold of the printed version of your title deed, it can not be abused.
The ownership is registered at the land registry office and it is the information in their computer systems that are valid.
Until recently the process of obtaining a title deed was somehow complicated and time consuming.
Luckily things have improved for the better and today the process goes as follows...
Via an online system an appointment for initiating the process is obtained from the land registry office.
Relevant information such as the public evaluation of the property, buyer and sellers personal information etc are collected and handed in to the land registry office.
