This research paper focuses on the practical use of real estate applications (RE-Apps) concerning the Austrian land register. Apps are small programmes on smartphones or tablets which are classified by their usage. One category is land register. After the app “iEigentum/xEigentum” by the company Beinhofer other regional clearing companies failed getting into the mobile market.
The land registry is a database comprised of property rights and interests. In theory, it is held within the land agency and should include records of ownership (also known as the title or deed) for all registered land parcels within a jurisdiction, be it at the municipal, county or national level.
