The purpose of a cadastral map (land registry map) is to provide information and mark the boundaries of plots of land as units of real estate, delimiting them graphically from the neighbouring plots, showing any buildings that are present and identifying them with a parcel number and their belonging to a given section and commune.
Thus, a cadastral map is a map of land which serves to locate and identify buildings and plots of land. The owner of a property can be identified from the parcel number.
Who is concernedNotaries, real-estate professionals and private individuals may apply for a Land Registry extract.
How to proceed
Application for a Land Registry extract
The Land Registry and Topography Administration (Administration du cadastre et de topographie - ACT) records each plot of land, whether built upon or not, the owner's details and the history of the plot.
Therefore, a Land Registry extract from the ACT can, depending on the applicant's needs, contain all or some of this information.
The ACT provides an online application form with a secure electronic payment system so that users can order Land Registry extracts online. Once the order is completed, the extract is sent to the applicant by the post.
Ownership certificate/Certificate of year of construction/Class of property - cadastral income on built-up land
Ownership certificates (Land Registry extracts) can be ordered and collected by the applicant, in return for payment, reimbursement or receipt, at the ACT's main head offices.
Origins (searching for deeds)
Origin certificates may be ordered by post, fax, e-mail, or in person at the head office or one of the regional offices. The required extract may be sent by post if paid for, or collected from the reception at the ACT's head office.
The price of the document varies depending on the amount of manual research required to unearth the deed.
A 1:2,500-scale copy of a cadastral map with or without specific details
The extracts of the cadastral map, with or without specific details, may be ordered and collected, in return for payment, reimbursement or receipt, from the ACT's head office.
The prices are calculated on the basis of the format of the extract.
Copies of measurements
If a plot of land has been officially measured, a copy of the measurements can be ordered either by mail or fax, or in person at the ACT's head office.
The price depends on the format of the copy in question.
