Real property

We safeguard the land ownership and credit system by maintaining information about properties and housing company shares in our registers and by taking care of the registration of ownership and mortgages. A cadastral survey is the means of forming new properties, defining the dimensions of a property and changing rights related to properties.

We provide services for property owners

A real property unit or property is called a plot when it is located in an area covered by a local detailed plan. Outside such areas, a property is often called a holding (for example, a forest holding). A real property unit consists of the area of land within its boundaries, its shares in joint property units and any easements benefitting the property, such as rights of way.

We offer services for apartment owners

We are building a new Residential and Commercial Property Information System, which will contain information of owners of residential or commercial property. We have compiled to-do-lists about the transaction for buyers and sellers.

Do you wish to transfer the housing company's list of shares to the Residential and Commercial Property Information System? You can find all instructions related to transferring the list of shares on the website (in Finnish).
