Keeping the land register up-to-date, managing the cases connected to land and other real estates: these are the main tasks of the territorially competent land offices. Land and other real estates have been recorded by settlements and within those by location (urban area, rural area, earlier also suburban hobby gardens). The district land offices receive clients at the client service desk, accepting applications and supplying data.
