As a property owner, you need to know about the rights and obligations that concern your property. Sometimes, it may be in your interest to consolidate two properties you own or to exchange properties with someone else.
You can change the name of your property (in Finnish)
Information about your property
You can also order a report on information about your property from our customer service. The report carries a charge and contains, for example, information about the rights of way that apply to your property.
If you need information about building permits, contact your municipality.
It is possible for a property not to have a right of way. The width of the right of way, or its location, may also be unclear. In such cases, as the landowner you can apply for a private road survey. From our customer service, you can also order an investigation into the archives to find out matters related to a right of way by studying old cadastral survey documents and maps. Such an investigation is subject to a charge.
If a boundary marker has been lost or the location of the boundary is otherwise unclear, you need to apply for a boundary demarcation.
When you need to know your property's shares in jointly-owned areas, order an extract from the cadastre.
Information about someone else's property
You need information about someone else's property when:
- You intend to buy a property.
- You are investigating rights of passage.
- You are constructing a building on your own property.
Get this information by ordering an extract or a certificate. You can also contact our customer service.
The Official purchase price register provides information about actual purchase prices. If you wish, you can compare the property you are buying with information in the register. Information about individual property purchases is available from our customer service.
