When purchasing a property, all governmental requirements and restrictions for the property must be taken into account. These public-law restrictions on ownership can dramatically influence the building and use plans for the property. The PLR-cadastre provides comprehensive information on this for the whole of Switzerland with a single click. AMATIN shows you what the PLR-cadastre www.cadastre.ch contains.
The PLR-cadastre www.cadastre.ch provides an extract for the public-law restrictions on landownership of practically all properties in Switzerland.
The most important property restrictions that can be accessed online are:
The land-use plans divide the territory into building zones and non-building zones. Within the building zone, the zone plan determines the permissible use and the number of storeys allowed. Outside the building zone, the zoning plan defines agricultural zones as well as landscape protection, site protection and tree protection areas.
Verzeichnis für KulturdenList of cultural monuments of considerable scientific, artistic, historical or local historical value that are particularly worthy of protection.
Land may be contaminated by former landfills and other waste. These “contaminated sites” may have to be remediated or monitored at great expense.
Noise sensitivity levels determine what noise emissions are permissible in the area. They divide properties into zones requiring increased noise protection, zones in which no disturbing businesses are permitted, and zones in which moderately and highly disturbing businesses are permitted.
The canton establishes protection zones for areas where groundwater is used for drinking water supply.
The PLR-cadastre also contains many other public-law property restrictions, for example:
… and all relevant legal texts
The PLR extracts also contain the legal texts for all the listed property restrictions, for example the building regulations of the communes, etc., etc.
