Surveying; application for a partition survey or parcel consolidation
In a partition survey, new parcel boundaries are defined. In the case of a parcel consolidation (merger), directly adjoining plots of land or parcels of land are merged. They 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 in the locality 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.
After the official division 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.
Consolidation of parcels (merger)
If you wish to merge directly adjoining plots of land or parcels of land, you can apply for a merger. In the case of a merger of two or more adjacent parcels, which are to be merged in advance under land register law, the parcels that are to be merged will be marked "will be eliminated". 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.
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 land registry for registration of the merger.
