How to consult the cadastre?

Verified 28 juillet 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

The cadastre is the collection of documents that identify and evaluate the land properties of each municipality. It serves as the basis for calculating local taxes.

The cadastral documentation includes the cadastral plan and cadastral matrix..

The cadastral plan is a graphic document. It represents the entire territory of the commune divided into cadastral sections (parts of the territory). The footprint of the buildings is also represented. The route of the main communication routes and watercourses, the position of the towns, hamlets, isolated farms and the names of the neighboring communes are indicated. The cadastral sections can be cut into parcel sheets and places-said with the numbers and boundaries of the plots. The names of the owners are not included.

These documents are accessible to all

The cadastral matrix is written documentation, published each year. It groups together the property statements that are also called matrix extracts.

The matrix extract summarizes the plots and the built buildings belonging to the same owner in the commune. It shall only be communicated by the Property Tax Center to the owner of the immovable property or to the agent acting on his behalf.

You can query the matrix from the owner's name or from the cadastral references of a plot or building.

The search is limited to a municipality or a district for Paris, Lyon and Marseille.

  Warning : the cadastral plan has a fiscal value. It does not set property limits. To demarcate the boundaries of a land, you must have a boundary by an expert surveyor.
