Application processing times

This page contains a list of the average processing times of applications related to apartments and properties as well as surveying services. Some applications are processed more quickly than others.

The reason for the longer processing time may be, for example, that additional information or an attachment has been requested. If there is a justified reason (e.g. planned sale of an apartment or property), the processing of the application can be speeded up by contacting the National Land Survey's customer service.
