We safeguard the land ownership and credit system by maintaining information about mortgages and registrations of title to property as well as other property information in our registers. A cadastral survey is the means of forming new properties, defining the dimensions of a property and changing rights related to properties.
We provide services for property owners
A real property unit or property is called a plot when it is located in an area covered by a local detailed plan. Outside such areas, a property is often called a holding (for example, a forest holding). A real property unit consists of the area of land within its boundaries, its shares in joint property units and any easements benefitting the property, such as rights of way.
