The Property Rights Group focuses on the continued delivery of a world-class survey and title system.

New Zealand has one of the most efficient and robust property rights systems in the world. The system is used for surveying, measuring and maintaining an official record of land boundaries, and for registering land titles.

The Property Rights group:

  • is made up of approximately 200 specialist staff that support the national Cadastral Survey and Land Title Systems. These systems form the basis of New Zealand’s land property rights market.
  • is responsible for the online e-lodgement system (Landonline) which has over 10,000 professional users (conveyancers and lawyers). Alongside LINZ staff these users collectively conduct over 3.5 million searches and transactions per year through Landonline.
