Other registers and searches

Are there any other registers or sources of information that it is usual to search when buying a property or lending money on mortgage?

Surely the buyer of the lender on mortgage (and on their behalf the notary) have to consult, in addition to the land register, the following other registers, for the purposes specified in each case:

  • The cadastre, in order to get information concerning the property (cartographic, descriptive, fiscal and historical). This register is maintained by Agenzia del territorio.
  • The business register, maintained by the Chambers of Commerce, in order to know the juridical and economic situation of a company or a firm.
  • The registry office, maintained by each Municipality, in order to know the personal situation and the civil status of a physical person, possible family agreements, etc.
