Cadastral registration of property

This information is provided by: Netherlands Enterprise Agency

When buying or selling registered property (real estate, ships and aeroplanes) in the Netherlands, you are obliged to register the related notarial deeds in the cadastral system. This also includes gas, electrical and telecommunication grids. Each grid is given a unique cadastral code. You can request this code from the Land Registry Office (Kadaster). To obtain a code, you will require a grid diagram.

Registration of ships

Registration of ships with the Land Registry Office is compulsory for inland navigation vessels with a water displacement exceeding 10 m³. Every registered ship has a unique number called a brand (brandmerk). You can also register a ship that is still under construction.
