Understanding Deslinde:

A deslinde is an important step in determining the space of a property. It is more official than a regular survey, as the results are determined by the Land Court and state the property's physical space. The deslinde process involves several steps:

a) A legal survey date needs to be set up with a certified office. This appointment should be made by the landowner.

b) The Land Court must be brought in by the survey office to authorize their results.

c) The survey office takes their authorized plot plan to be approved by the Land Court. They must go to the General Surveyor's Section and their plan must include GPS codes.

d) The owner must first authorize the plot plan himself by attaching a letter stating that the information is true.

e) The plan will either be approved or rejected by the General Surveyor's Section.

f) Once the plot plan has been approved, a new authorization is issued by the Land Court. This authorization demands that a new title be issued by the Registrar of Titles.

g) The land owner is issued a new title to the freshly surveyed property.

Measurements for Sanitation:

This is done when the individualized parcel of land is lifted. If the property has never been properly measured, this identifies the location.


This is done when the property owner wants to divide a large plot into several smaller, registered plots.


This is done when the property owner wants to combine two or more adjacent pieces of land. The new lot will integrate all lots together so that they are legally considered a single lot.


This is done using Annotated Proofs to regulate parts of buildings and the way that buildings are located within a specific property.

Neighborhood Parcel:

This act is also referred to as urbanization and involves taking a plot and lifting it in order to divide registered parcels. In order to do this properly, it must first be approved by the authorities and the approval bill must be attached.


This involves defining the terms and properties of a building in order to decide if it can be considered for a condominium development.
