The transfer of title to a buyer is effective when it is registered in the Cadastral Register of the Czech Republic. All transfer documents are subject to review by the relevant cadastral office, which examines whether the legal requirements of the transfer have been met. The registration with the cadastral register is effective as at the time of application for registration. Registration is not required for very small or specialised constructions, such as fences, walls etc.
