416 *Real Estate Registry: Is there a central registry of domestic real estate publicly available online? CENTRAL: While there is a central registry of real estate, it is not - or only exceptionally - available online to the public.
 Data Date: 2019


Immovable property registration is operated in Mauritius by the Ministry of Housing and Lands. While there is a functional online registration system after which "any interested person or a Land Surveyor or a Notary acting on behalf of an interested person may apply for PIN" (where PIN stands for Parcel Identification Number); information provided online is not sufficient to complete the procedure. Thus, even if ownership information is legally accessible to anyone, online processes do not provide sufficient guidance to access information. Thus, it is appropriate to conclude registry information is not available online.
