Real Estate

The last deadline for filling applications for the restitution of property ended on 31 December 2011.

The deadline for submitting claims for in rem restitution of real estate owned by particular federal provinces, cities or municipalities as of January 17, 2001, was extended until December 31, 2009, at the initiative of the IKG Vienna. (Federal provinces: Burgenland, Upper Austria, Salzburg, Styria, Vorarlberg, Vienna; Municipalities: Bad Ischl, Frauenkirchen, Kobersdorf, Korneuburg, Mattersburg, Oberwart, Purkersdorf, Vöcklabruck, Wiener Neudorf).

The IKG Vienna's Department for Restitution Affairs is tracking numerous claims that were able to be submitted within the deadline thanks to the comprehensive examination of confiscated real estate by the IKG Vienna historians. The IKG Vienna's Department for Restitution Affairs is happy to provide any additional information that may be necessary.

The General Settlement Fund has databases and comprehensive documentation of files for all real estate owned by the City of Vienna and the federal province of Upper Austria.
