We make sure New Zealand has accurate information about where people and places are, people have confidence in their property rights and Crown property is well managed for future generations.

We’re the Government’s lead agency for property and location information, Crown property and managing overseas investment – working across land, sea, data and regulatory areas. 

Our responsibilities include managing land titles, geodetic and cadastral survey systems, topographic information, hydrographic information, managing Crown property and supporting government decision-making around foreign ownership.

We have more than 700 employees across our three offices in Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.
