EULIS is the first and only service offering direct access to official land registers in Europe.
The European Land Information Service (EULIS) is the first and only service to offer direct access to cross-border official land registration information. EULIS is owned by a consortium of ten European land registry organisations, most of which are government departments. The website (www.eulis.eu) launched at the beginning of February, explains the service with new innovative web tools. The interactive map shows which countries are currently available to search in, as well as those pending connection to the service. The unique demonstrator gives a guided tour through an example search - visitors can see a real journey logging in on the Dutch land registry, travelling through the EULIS portal and searching in the England & Wales land register. The handy registry comparison chart tells users what information they can find in each country’s land register, prices and where to find assistance.
The new user-friendly web space is easy to navigate and aims to raise awareness of EULIS’ unique service with subscribed users of national land registries. “We would like to get a clear message about EULIS across to professional organisations and individuals such as banks, lenders, credit agencies, solicitors, legal professionals, estate agents, government departments and enforcement agencies.” says Sarah Long, EULIS Marketing Manager. “It is an exciting and unique service which could be valuable in cross border business activities.” she adds.
The website aims to help achieve full European coverage for the service by extending membership. At present, participating countries are Ireland, Netherlands, Lithuania, Sweden and Austria.
The long term vision is to help create an environment to facilitate cross border lending through direct access to property and land information across Europe.
