The Estonian Land Register is a title based electronic register. The right has to be entered in the land register to be valid. Entries made in the land register are presumed correct.
The land register is accessible online and all register parts are valid electronically.
Estonian registers change information electronically using the government information system X-Road.
In the Estonian conveyancing process notaries send through e-Notary applications to the land registry and receive back the data of finished entries or detailed information about register parts. In addition to the connection with the notary system, the land register has electronic online data exchange with registers like land cadastre, the business register and the population register. : More information on e-Land register
