Dismantling measurement

Do you want to subdivide your parcel or have you reached an agreement with a property owner about the purchase of a part of the land? Then you can apply for the dismantling measurement here.

During the dismantling survey, the new sections are determined and, if desired, documented by marking (e.g. boundary stones) on site. Boundary points of an existing border that cannot be found can be identified and marked upon request.

After the dismantling survey, the results are entered in the real estate cadastre. The responsible cadastral office prepares a certificate of continuity in which it documents the changes in the real estate cadastre (e.g. location, size and description of the parcels). This proof is automatically transmitted to the Land Registry. On request, an excerpt will be sent to the responsible notary for the notarization of any real estate transactions.

Under certain conditions, it is also possible to define new parcel boundaries without local surveying. This process is called segregation. In order to clarify whether segregation is possible in your case, you must always seek advice in advance.

Process flow

Where necessary, existing parcel boundaries will be determined, new parcel boundaries will be determined by mutual agreement, and existing boundary points will be determined upon request. If desired, established and defined boundary points are marked with boundary markers (marked).

In the case of existing boundaries of a parcel, the neighbours of the property must be involved. In addition to the other parties involved, they are given the opportunity to comment on the facts relevant to the decision in the border determination and demarcation proceedings at a hearing.

The parties involved (property owners, purchasers, neighbours of the property) are notified of the boundary determination and the demarcation.

The results of the hearing and the administrative file on border determination and demarcation are recorded in an official border document and permanently archived.

After evaluation of the decomposition survey, the results (including parcel number and parcel area) are entered in the real estate cadastre. The divider is now registered as a separate parcel. Depreciation and transfer in the land registers can now take place.

Who should I contact?

Dissection measurement or segregation can be

  • by the locally competent cadastral office of the State Office for Geoinformation and Surveying of Lower Saxony (LGLN) or
  • be carried out by a licensed Publicly Appointed Surveyor (ÖbVI) licensed in Lower Saxony.

The registration of the results of the survey in the real estate cadastre is generally carried out by the cadastral office.


You can submit a request for dismantling measurement if you:

  • Parcel owner,
  • a person with hereditary building rights,
  • a person with power of attorney (authorized) or consent of the owner or the person entitled to build a heritable building, or
  • a public authority in the performance of its tasks


The assumption of costs must be clearly indicated.
Applicants owe the costs if the person bearing the costs is absent.

Which documents are required?

In the event that the applicant is not the owner of a parcel or a hereditary building right:

  • Informal power of attorney in the case of authorization by the parcel owner or a person entitled to a hereditary building right.

In the event that the applicant is not the cost bearer:

  • Informal confirmation to cover the costs.

What are the fees?

The dismantling measurement is subject to a fee. The costs are based on the cost regulations for official surveying (KOVerm). This schedule of costs is binding for the regional directorates and for the publicly appointed surveyors.

The costs depend on:

  • the number of old and newly established boundary points established in the locality,
  • from the number of newly formed parcels,
  • the value of the land (market value) at the time of termination of the service, and
  • of expenses such as boundary stones, kilometers driven, travel expenses of employees.

Since these factors can change in the course of a survey, it is not possible to give an exact cost indication at the time of application. Only a non-binding cost estimate can be made on the basis of the information from the application in consultation with the applicant.

With three new boundary points, a newly formed parcel and a land value between €10/m² and €200/m², the costs amount to around €2,800. This also includes the fee for the necessary entry in the real estate cadastre.

A comparable separation costs around €1,370.

In order to clarify whether segregation is possible in your case, you must seek advice in advance. No consultation is necessary if the definition of the new boundary can be clearly determined in other ways (e.g. 12 m parallel to the side of the building).


What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

At least one week before the on-site survey, the parties involved must be summoned.

After the announcement of the results of the survey and the entry of the results in the real estate cadastre, the appeal period for the parties involved is one month.

Processing duration

Due to deadlines for summons and appeals, the processing time is usually two to three months.
