What is a Layout?
In land registry and cadastre transactions, parts such as map, parcel and island, which are systematically divided by zoning plans and regulations, are used in order to show the size, environment and location of the immovables on the map or plan.
Each of the parts that make up a map or plan is called a sheet. On maps prepared within a certain scale, land, land, etc. It is generally not possible to show parts of the earth in a single sheet. For this reason, the area to be mapped is divided systematically by taking the latitude and longitude differences and dividing them into specific layouts.
What is the Parcel?
According to the 18th article of the Zoning Law, a piece of land with definite borders is called a parcel. Parceling operations are carried out according to zoning plans. In the deed registration procedures, after the zoning plan is applied to the land, it is drawn on the map and divided into parcels. This plan is called a parceling plan. In the determination of parcel sizes, if there is no contrary provision in the zoning plan, the provisions of the Planned Areas Regulation are taken as basis. There can be a single owner or more than one owner on a parcel.
What is an Island?
The community prepared in line with the zoning plans, consisting of various parcels, with definite boundaries, is called “island”. Unlike the parcel, the boundaries of the island are determined by roads, water resources and streets.
Island, map and parcel inquiries can be made through the website of the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre. It is possible to do this query with the “Parcel Inquiry Screen” application at https://parselsorgu.tkgm.gov.tr/.
