Requesting an extract from the Land Registry

Last update

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 land map which serves to locate and identify buildings and plots of land. The owner of a property can be identified from the parcel number of land.

Who is concerned?

Notaries, real-estate professionals and private individuals may apply for a Land Registry extract (also: cadastral extract).

Costs

Ownership certificates, copies of the cadastral map and the copies of land measurements ordered on the online application and delivered in electronic format are free of charge.

The ownership certificates, the copies of the cadastral map and the copies of the land measurements provided in paper format are charged.

The cost of an ownership certificate complemented by the indication of origins varies depending on the amount of work required to carry out the manual research.

How to proceed

Application for a Land Registry extract

The Land Registry and Topography Administration (Administration du cadastre et de la 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 part of this information.

The ACT provides users with an application wizard for online orders of cadastral extracts.

Applicants can choose between 2 ways to receive the documents:

  • in electronic format: the applicant can order and receive the extract in PDF format for free by email;
  • in paper format: the applicant can order the extract in paper format. It will be invoiced and sent by post. The application for online ordering includes a secure online payment feature.

The PDF document is identical to the paper document.
