Legitimate interest

For the inspection of the land register, you need a legitimate interest. This means that you must provide the land registry office with factual and comprehensible reasons why you want to inspect the land register. You have a legitimate interest, for example, as a potential buyer of a property - to obtain information about the ownership structure and rights (such as usufruct rights) and encumbrances. You can make use of this right according to § 12 GBO (only in German)
