Land Cadastre

The Land Cadastre is a general national register. In its operations the Land Cadastre follows the objectives and tasks as stipulated in the Land Cadastre Act. The objective of the maintenance of the Cadastre is to register information in the Cadastre reflecting the value of land, the natural status of land and the use of land, and to ensure the quality of such information and that it is preserved and made available to the public. According to the Databases Act, the chief processor of the Cadastre is the Ministry of the Environment and the authorised processor of the Cadastre, i.e. cadastral registrar, is the Land Board. The function of the cadastral registrar is to register cadastral units, register restrictions and rights of use of land, and collect and process data necessary for the valuation of land.
