8. LR AND CADASTRAL RELATIONSHIP:

Starting from 2008  LR and Cadastral relationship is based on a integrated data base system.

The modifications of the map are performed on the basis of a document called tipo di frazionamento, which is first examined by a cadastre employee on request of a partie and, after the legal control of the LR, automatically introduced by the cadastre.

The modification of the map can also be introduced on the basis of a Foglio di Notifica, which is a document performed by the Cadastre itself (without request of a partie).

This is Catasto fondiario, so called.

Catasto Edilizio is independent from Land Registry and it involves fiscal aspects of houses.
