Point locations for most current property titles issued in NZ (January 2010)

Titles from the LINZ BDE are not a spatial layer. A single point for each title has been geocoded from the relation tables to the first parcel centroid where a link exists.

Many parcels have more than one title reference, so there may be a stack of points for a title, typical in a crosslease.

There is only one point per title. Where a title spans multiple parcels, a relate would need to be built to identify all the parcels comprising a title. While this can be done for one title, it is impractical for a map. Internal parcel boundaries can be suppressed to show contiguous parcels with the same title. Parcel boundaries are coded for internal boundaries (featurecode = 'parcel_int').

A property (for rating purposes) may contain many titles, but there is no information in the titles or valuation system to display this. The valuation system does not have a complete record of titles for an assessment (amazing isn't it?). Because large properties are often in multiple titles and owners there is no information to amalgamate the parts into a single entity.

A large number (500,000) of titles cannot be automatically located because the parcel that the title refers to is no longer current and is not mapped in LandOnline. Other reasons are ambiguous appellation that prevents a reliable match so they are not linked by LINZ until they come up for a change of title, not just change of owner.

Titles can have multiple owners, so these have been added as an abbreviated list to each title. Owners can be companies or trusts.

Total number 1.78 million.

This set of titles is subject to recall if a protected title is issued in error.
