Property Registration Authority logo  Property Registration Authority



The Property Registration Authority (PRA) is the State organisation responsible for the registration of property transactions in Ireland. Our role is to provide a system of registration of title (ownership) to land, which is comprehensive and readily accessible. Our mission is to safeguard property rights and facilitate property transactions by maintaining and extending a comprehensive system of registration of title in Ireland. The main functions of the PRA are to manage and control the Land Registry and the Registry of Deeds and to promote and extend the registration of ownership of land. The PRA also operates the Ground Rents Purchase Scheme under the Landlord and Tenant Acts.

                                                                                                            The PRA was established on 4 November 2006 under the provisions of the Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006. The Authority itself comprises 11 members who are representative of the main users and consumers of property registration services.


Frank Treacy is the Chief Executive of the PRA.
