Owners of land in Switzerland cannot simply use it in any way they wish. Certain conditions have to be complied with that have come into being as the result of legislation or decisions by the authorities. Public-law restrictions on landownership are legally binding for landowners.

In the past, anyone who needed information about a specific public law restriction on landownership had to ask the relevant cantonal or municipal authority for the required details, while information relating to private law restrictions could be obtained from the corresponding land register.

The PLR Cadastre greatly simplifies the search for information about public-law restrictions on landownership. In a single information system, it provides details regarding the most important restrictions relating to a specific plot of land. It contains complete, reliable and comprehensible data from a broad variety of sources.
