Digital Map (Land parcel outlines)
The land parcel outlines displayed on the digital map are for the purposes of identification only and are not legally accurate. The legal boundary of a property is defined within the text of a corresponding registered deed document or illustrated by way of a registered plan.
Domestic TRP (Tax on Real property)

The Domestic TRP is a figure commonly requested by estate agents and is the sum of TRP categories B1.x, B2.x and B3.x

Local Market property is assigned a domestic TRP category B1.x whereas Open Market is categorised B2.x

TSheets (Cadastre notification letters)

The system provides, via embedded hyperlinks, access to images of advocates’ notification letters to Cadastre (or Tsheets) detailing changes to property ownership dating back to 1918. Images of the manual Cadastre ledgers of 1924 and 1947 (or, register sheets) are also included.

Traditional research of the Cadastre records may still be required for property transaction and assessment history prior to 1986.


The LAPIS system is based on Cadastre transaction records which have been matched to corresponding Greffe conveyance and plan documents dating back to 1950. It should be noted that Greffe registrations other than changes of ownership were not historically notified to Cadastre and a program to record these transactions in still ongoing. Currently, the Cadastre and Greffe registers are completely matched from 2005 to present. Greffe registrations as yet unrecorded on LAPIS can be located using the Index feature.

The index for the deeds & plans may not be complete and normal research may be required.
