This article analyses the mode of implementation of public electronic services with respect to immovable property contracts (PESIPC) between the Lithuanian State Enterprise (SE) "Centre of Registers" (Centre of Registers) and the notaries including the legal aspects relating to such contracts. The PESIPC information system in Lithuania has been created with the purpose of simplifying procedures for the conclusion and registration on the property contract, namely by renouncing the need for the appearance of the interested parties in person in the premises of the Centre of Registers, because all contracting procedures can be completed in the notary’s office. The official information on registry and cadastre of immovable property, which is required for concluding and verifying a contract, must be delivered directly to notaries and interested parties through the internet. Both the- preparation of contract documents and the registration of changes related to legal facts as well as the contracts in the register of immovable property are planned to be computerized. This is one of the first PESIPC systems in Europe; thus, it is vital to research the legal aspects related with the operation of such an information system.
