Real-Estate Property Law in Germany
The concept of real-estate property is not legally defined in German law. From the statutes concerning real-estate property, however, it can be determined that real estate in the legal sense is a spatially limited portion of the face of the earth which is recorded in the land register. It follows that every piece of real estate in Germany is recorded on a page of the land register. The land registers are maintained by the local courts. Several pieces of real estate belonging to the same owner can be contained on a single page (for more details concerning the land register see section IV below).
