Parcels of land; application for a survey for division or merger
In the case of a division (partition), new parcel boundaries are defined. In the case of a merger (unification), directly adjoining parcels of land are merged. Both types of boundary changes are carried out on the basis of a surveying application.
Partition surveys are surveys in which new parcel boundaries (usually property and ownership boundaries) are defined. In a partition survey, the new boundary is redefined in agreement with the property owners involved and documented on site by marking (e.g., with boundary stones). A division survey is carried out by the responsible state office for digitization, broadband and surveying on the basis of a survey application.
Approval from the municipality is no longer required for a property division. However, the division of land must not result in conditions that conflict with the provisions of an existing development plan.
Further information on this can be obtained from the municipality in whose area the land to be divided is located.
Consolidation of parcels
If you wish to merge directly adjoining plots of land or parcels of land, you can apply for the merger. In the case of the merger of two or more adjacent parcels, which are to be united with each other in advance under land register law, the parcels that are to be merged are given the note "falls away". The affected parcel boundaries cease to exist and markings that have become meaningless can be removed.
Mergers of parcels that have arisen in connection with an applied-for partition survey can be applied for free of charge within a period of 2 years.
You would like to apply for a division or merger of parcels.
You must apply for the partial survey or parcel consolidation at the responsible Office for Digitization, Broadband and Surveying.
After the official partition survey, the Office for Digitization, Broadband and Surveying prepares a continuation certificate in which the changes in the real estate cadastre (e.g. location, size and description of the parcels) are documented. This is sent to the notary for notarization of the land transaction. The land registry then enters the change in ownership in the land register.

The fee is calculated according to the number of both old and new boundary points established in the locality and the number of newly formed parcels.
The fee amounts to
- for the 1st boundary point: 260 EUR
- for the 2nd to 30th boundary point: 85 EUR each
- for the 31st to 100th boundary point: 70 EUR each
- for all further border points: 60 EUR each
- for the 1st parcel: 410 EUR
- for the 2nd to 10th parcel: 170 EUR each
- for the 11th to 30th parcel: 90 EUR each
- for all further parcels: 55 EUR each
For the merger of parcels, the fee is calculated according to the number of parcels that will be eliminated. It amounts to
- for the 1st to 10th parcel: 40 EUR each
- for the 11th to 30th parcel: 20 EUR each
- for all further parcels: 10 EUR each
In addition, the sum of the respective fees is multiplied by a value factor, which depends on the land value (market value) of the treated parcels:
- up to 5 EUR - value factor 0.8
- over 5 to 25 EUR - value factor 1.0
- over 25 to 50 EUR - value factor 1.3
- from 50 to 200 EUR - value factor 1.7
- from 200 to 500 EUR - value factor 2.0
- from 500 to 2500 EUR - value factor 2,5
- from 2500 to 4000 EUR - value factor 3,5
- over 4000 EUR - value factor 4,0
In addition, 19% VAT is added from the assessment base (80% of the subtotal).
The application may also be advanced for a 20% surcharge.
