Canton Thurgau activated in Terravis real estate portal

From today, authorized users will be able to access information from the Swiss land registry and cadastral surveying via the web based Terravis real estate portal. The activation is a further step in Switzerland’s e-government project eGRIS (electronic real estate information).

Canton Thurgau has managed its land registry electronically since 2006, with its in-house developed TERRIS system also being used in twelve cantons as well as Liechtenstein. Across Switzerland there are currently five different closed systems; as such, data cannot be exchanged at a national level. All of this is now changing: the activation of Canton Thurgau in Terravis marks a key milestone on the way to a real estate portal for information from land registries and cadastral surveying across Switzerland. All cantons are set to be activated in the system by the end of 2012.

Terravis is a key part of the eGRIS e-government project, as part of which the federal government and the cantons are aiming to further develop and harmonize the system of land registries, which is currently organized on a cantonal basis. This will result in lower administrative efforts and increases in efficiency for both cantonal and municipal authorities as well as more cost-efficient, secure and quicker processing of transactions (setting up and amending mortgages, changes of property ownership etc.) between land registries, notaries and credit institutions.

SIX Group is implementing eGRIS in close cooperation with the cantons on behalf of the Swiss Federal Department of Justice. Data protection is given the highest priority at all times. Access to Terravis is granted only to those persons who are authorized in accordance with the relevant legal provisions.
