What does the Slovak Land Register offer?
The Slovak Land Register portal (Slovenský katastrálny portál) is hosted by the Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Authority of the Slovak Republic (Úrad geodésie, kartografie a katastra Slovenskej republiky), and a central government authority for land registers. The portal is operated and maintained by Geographic and Cartographic Institute Bratislava (Geodetický a kartografický ústav Bratislava).
The Portal provides legal and factual information about real estate ownership. It is updated once a week using data supplied by the respective land register offices. Search is available in Slovak and in English. The portal provides:
- selected data from the geographic information file - cadastral maps,
- selected data from the descriptive information file - information about parcels, structures, flats, non-residential premises and ownership documents,
- register of municipalities, register of cadastral districts,
- statistical reports,
- aggregate values by type of land,
- information about the status of proceedings before the land register,
- notifications of contemplated registration applications.
An ownership document (list vlastníctva) provides information about the property, its owners and the rights attaching to the property, as well as additional information on property-related rights. More specifically, it contains:
- a unique number,
- the name of the district in which the particular property is located,
- the name of the relevant municipality,
- the name of the cadastral district.
It consists of 3 parts:
Part A – Physical assets, which lists all the properties subject to property rights, detailing:
