What is EULIS?
EULIS is the European Land Information Service and is a consortium of European National Land Registers. The strategic objective of EULIS is to provide easy access to European electronic land and property information in order to promote and underpin a single European property market. This essentially means that professional users of online Land Registry Services within the European Economic Area (EEA) will have access to other Europe online Land Registry Services.
The vision for EULIS is that ultimately:
• customers will have ready access to information about individual properties throughout Europe;
• they will also have ready access to all necessary reference information on the land and property registration services provided, and the associated legal environment, in each European country; and
• all European land and property registration services will be readily accessible through a single portal.
The Property Registration Authority can now give it's landdirect.ie customers the facility to search other European online Land Registry services. All professional users of Land Registration services who subscribe to landdirect.ie and are resident within the EEA will be automatically given access to EULIS from 1st December 2007 . If you are an existing landdirect.ie customer and do not wish to have access to EULIS, then please contact Carmel O'Shea by email at email@example.com. Countries currently connected to EULIS live are Sweden, Netherlands, Lithuania, Ireland and Austria.
Scotland, N. Ireland, Latvia, Czech Republic, Finland and Iceland are members of EULIS but there are no dates as yet for live service.
