The Land Register is a public register of the Republic of Austria. All plots of land and the rights in rem to the same are registered in the Land Register (e.g. title, condominium ownership, liens, building rights, servitudes, easements). A Land Register entry is usually done by a notary. A Land Register excerpt consists of three parts: the A Sheet (Property Sheet), the B Sheet (Title Sheet) and the C Sheet (Charges Sheet including pre-emptive rights or liens of the banks, etc.). If there are no charges, the C Sheet is empty.
