Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
202. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the way the publicly available information on land prices and land transaction in Ireland compares to that in other EU countries; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [38767/21]
The Property Registration Authority (PRA) registers land/property transactions which, on registration, can be accessed by the public as part of the National Land Register. Information on the Register and the registration process is available on the PRA's website at www.prai.ie.
The consideration (price paid) is not shown on the Register. However, this may be available on the Property Price Register maintained by the Property Services Regulatory Authority.
I am not aware of any comparative study across EU jurisdictions on publicly available information in respect of land transactions and land prices.
