The real estate file presents, as it results from the published documents, the current legal situation of the buildings.

This file is a real database of "the civil status" of real estate, it includes many elements such as:

- the names of successive owners
- any easements
- the origin of the property
- the identity of the current owner
- mortgages taken on a property

etc ...

How does the Land Registry Service work?

The Land Registry Service plays a dual role in the maintenance of this real estate database.

The land registration service receives the acts of notaries or administrative acts and publishes them (the publication is the act of making this information accessible to third parties).

And on the other hand, it responds to requests from users (professionals and individuals) and transmits, following these requests, information on a building, a person, an act in particular etc ....

What is the point of obtaining this type of information?

The data of the service of the land advertising is a real gold mine for the real estate investor. Indeed, these data make it possible to answer the following questions:

The answers to these questions can help you negotiate the purchase price of a good (it's easier to make an offer when you know the seller's purchase price), to avoid going through a real estate agency directly determining the identity of an owner etc ...
