Real estate registry
The real estate registry of the Leipzig City Council is a registry open to the public. Cadastral parcels and buildings (real estate) of the city are recorded in this registry and made available to the public. In particular it serves the purpose of securing property rights as well as real estate transactions.
The local subdistrict or "Germarkung" is a district of the land register, comprising a locally-related group of cadastral parcels of a municipality.
The cadastral parcel is a delineated area of land surface, which is recorded under a specific label in the real estate registry. A cadastral parcel can cover areas with different land use types. The cadastral parcel is of central importance in lot-related information systems, with the cadastral parcel number acting as a link between various files. To retrieve information either the cadastral parcel number as well as the local subdistrict (Gemarkung) are required or the street and house number.
The legal definition of a lot (Grundstück) under the German Civil Code is a spatially-delineated surface land area, which has been recorded on a separate land register page or recorded on a joint land register page under a specific number of the inventory. A lot can comprise of numerous cadastral parcels.
In the real estate registry the actual use is recorded for every cadastral parcel or sections of the cadastral parcel with different land uses. In the land register however, instead of the land use, the economic use (the summary of different land uses) is recorded.
The evidence of revision of the cadastral map contains the changes that have taken place on the cadastral parcel. The label and the description of the former cadastral parcels affected by the change (old inventory) and the label and the description of the updated cadastral parcels (new inventory) are compared in tabular form.
The Land Registration Map (cadastral map) is a ground plan of the cadastral parcels drawn to scale. The purpose of the cadastral map is to show the borders of the cadastral parcels drawn to perfect scale, to show the existence of any buildings and to provide evidence of the actual use of the cadastral parcels.
The descriptive details of a cadastral parcel are recorded in the automated land registration book. This includes the declared area, the actual use, the land label, the land register page number, and owner details (for information purposes only)
Under the definition of merging we understand a cadastral joining of several neighbouring cadastral parcels into one cadastral parcel. The prerequisite for merging is:
- the cadastral parcels to be merged must be under the same ownership
- the cadastral parcels must be unified i.e. the cadastral parcels must be recorded under one number in the land register inventory
- the cadastral parcels should not be subjected to different departments (i.e. department II, department III)
Several lots can be pooled in the land register to become one lot. The new lot from the consolidation is recorded in the land register inventory under a new sequential number. A consolidation in the land register is a prerequisite for the official pooling of cadastral parcels.
