The European Land Registry Association (ELRA) is an international association without lucrative purpose. Its mission and primary purpose is: "the development and understanding of the role of land registration in real property and capital markets".

In October 2004, a group of Land Registry organisations decided that the time was right to create a European Association to represent the interests of Land Registries in the EU. This initiative was supported by Mr. Antonio Vitorino, the former Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner.

ELRA started off with 12 members; it now has 26 organizations representing the land registries of 20 Member States, and is still growing.

ELRA wants to underline the significance of Land Registries in Europe as juridical institutions and the scope of the effects of registration pronouncements as a fundamental tool for progress and change in the rule of law in the field of property and rights on immovables.

The primary purpose of ELRA is the development and understanding of the role of land registration in real property and capital markets. Equally, ELRA is fully committed to work on behalf of Land Registries in Europe in cooperating with the EU institutions.
