What is a land register extract? (Where do I get it and how much does the extract cost?)

The land register is a public register in which the ownership status of properties is regulated. It contains details of the respective owners and all essential contents relating to rights and encumbrances connected with the property. You can obtain a land register extract from the land registry or your notary.

What happens with the tenants upon a change of ownership?

The property is sold either free from occupants or let. If you sell your apartment let, your tenants may continue to live in the object. We take over the tenancy relationship upon the current conditions. Note: The sale of a property is not a ground for the tenants to give notice of termination!

Must I draw attention to any damage or defects? What might be the consequences if I fail to do so?

Defects which have been fraudulently concealed entitle the purchaser to rescind the purchase contract. The purchaser will demand back all payments which have been made. The purchaser can also demand the rectification of the defects. An example of reasons why might rescind the purchase contract is the deliberate failure to disclose the growth of mould, damp walls or beetle infestation.
