Legal value of LR Information

Home / European Land Registry Network / Finland / Legal value of LR Information

What is the legal value of land registry information delivered by your national system?

Certified information. Is the LR information partly or completely certified? If partly, could you please describe what specific information is certified?

Non certified information

Excerpts (pdf) are controlled and certified by National Land Survey of Finland (NLS). In addition some information is available via web client (.html). Data provided in XML format delivered as interface service is not controlled or certified on 3rd party products (further developed from XMLs)

As for the legal value of the content of the LR information in itself, the concept of “positive public reliability” is of great importance. The correctness of information in the register is guaranteed. This is applied especially to the information pertaining to the ownership of real estate. The third parties are allowed to rely on that the registered titleholder really is the rightful owner of the real estate in question
