How to find out the property identifier

When you need information about a property, you should find out what the property identifier is before contacting the National Land Survey. The property identifier is a series of four numbers, such as 740-555-2-0. The property identifier is shown on extracts concerning the property in question, such as a real estate tax demand or certificate of title.

You can also use the map below to search for the property identifier.

  1. Enter a place name, address or property ID in the search field on the map below.
  2. You can use the characters + and − to zoom in and out on the map.
  3. The identifiers become visible when you have zoomed in close enough. Loading property identifiers on the map can take a while.
  4. If you need to know the owner of a property, read the instructions on the "Who owns this property unit?" page.
