No.

The entry of the attachment in the Registry is obligatory and constitutes the enforcement together with the notification of the attachment to the debtor.

The entry is requested by the bailiff or the proceeding creditor on the basis of an enforceable decision or an interim measure.

The entry allows the creditor to expropriate the immovable asset against everyone.

The entry remains valid 20 years (extendible upon request) and it is deleted, upon request, at the end of the enforcement proceeding by the land registrar on the basis of an order of the enforcing judge and a subsequent decree issued by the land register judge.

Attached properties can be transferred without prejudice to the right of the person in favour of whom the attachment is made.
