Real Estate and Survey Unit of Rauma is selling extracts from the land information system of Finland. This service covers the entire territory of Finland. Cadastral register extracts are needed for instance when applying for a building permit or when selling a real estate or unseparated parcel. These extracts are for example, extracts from cadastre, extracts from cadastral index map, certificates of title and certificates of mortgages and encumbrances.
A real estate transaction must be made in written. A public purchase witness must be present when the deed of transfer for property is signed. Transfer can be transaction, exchange or gift. Without a public purchase witness, the transfer is void, and the buyer cannot have a certificate of title for the real estate or unseparated parcel.
Public purchase witness advises on how to apply for a certificate of title and conveys the details of transfer to National Land Survey of Finland.
