Property Security

Property security depends on the property register (legal security) and the cadastre (technical security).

The cadastre is composed of detailed surveys of land and real estate property and is based on a matrix of fixed points. The most important reference elements of the cadastre are property boundaries that represent the basis of property ownership relationships.

Acting as a technical public notary the appointed surveyor determines these property boundaries giving them a legally binding status.

The ownership entry in the property register is also based on the results of the surveyor's work. The content of the register is legally binding.
