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.

The PLR Cadastre is currently being developed in Switzerland.

With the aid of the Cadastre of public-law restrictions on landownership (PLR Cadastre), which is currently being developed, it is possible to readily obtain relevant information about plots of land, and there is also a higher degree of legal certainty thanks to the provision of binding information. It is not only land owners, but also the various players on the property market, as well as authorities and public administrations, who will benefit from this comprehensive instrument.
