Data on real estate of Luxembourg is stored in two systems: Cadastre and Register of the Department of Registration and Domains.
The Cadastre of Luxembourg is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Cadastre and Topography.
Tasks of the Cadastre

- cadastral map
- description of a land plot
- information about owners
- data on land use
- data on construction
From the register one may obtain:
- extract from the register
- certificate of origin
A complete public electronic version of the land register of Luxembourg does not exist now. However, there is an electronic system of data exchange between state authorities and notaries.
Extracts from the register may be obtained in a paper form in the office of the Cadastre for a fee. For this purpose, one must prove his/her right to information (as an owner or his/her legal representative), or prove a legitimate interest.
Data on mortgage and transactions are not available in the Cadastre. They are recorded in registers of the Department of Registration and Domains.
Extracts from the land register of Luxembourg may be used for:
- confirmation of title to real estate

Luxembourg joined the Hague Convention on simplified legalization of documents on April 4, 1979. On June 3, 1979 the Convention came into force.
Thus, documents issued in Luxembourg are subject to legalization based on the apostilling procedure, after certified translation such documents acquire full legal force on the territory of all other Hague Convention Member States.
As a rule of thumb, apostillation of extracts takes about two weeks.
