Archival query on the inventory data of buildings

  • If you need certified copies (for official use, for example to submit them to a public institution), we advise you to submit an archival query. You will receive an archival notice for which you will have to pay a state fee (plus the fee for copies and/or the expedited query fee).
  • If you need uncertified copies (either for personal use or other reasons for which certification is not important), we advise you to make an order for copies. In that case, you do not need to pay the state fee.

Release of copies of inventory documents in the archive (up to 2003) of the Register of Buildings of Tallinn that were transferred to the City Archives. In most cases, you will receive an answer to your query within 15 working days. You can also apply for an expedited query: in this case, you will receive an answer within two working days if possible. The fee for an expedited query is 15 euros. If you wish for an expedited query, mention it in your enquiry form and the City Archives council will inform you of whether they can provide this service.
The answers for a query are paid: you must pay the state fee and the fee for copies and/or the expedited query fee. Please note! Make sure you don’t make the payment before you have received a notification from the City Archives informing you of the amount to be paid.
