Benefits of Land Re-surveying - Protects Property Rights Against Disputes
Land Administration Bureau, Kaohsiung City Government's 2020 annual cadastral map re-survey area covers 3,102 hectares and contains 10,350 records. The cadastral map re-survey results were announced for 30 days from September 23, 2020 to October 23, 2020. If landowners have any objections during the announcement period, they may apply for a re-survey by paying a re-survey fee to the land office in charge within the announcement period. If there is no objection at the expiration of the public notice period, it is confirmed that the landmarking change is registered in accordance with the law, and landowners are notified in writing to exchange the certificate of Land ownership certificate.
As Taiwan's economy grows, the value of land increases, and the demand for accurate cadastral maps increases. The cadastral maps produced in the period of Japanese rule were so old that not only were the paper maps shrunken and severely damaged, but the accuracy of cartography at that time no longer met the needs of modern times. In addition, over the decades, due to man-made or natural terrain changes, the boundaries of the land no longer match the original cadastre, which can lead to boundary disputes, so a cadastral map re-survey is required.
According to the Director-General of the Land Administration Bureau, the cadastral map re-survey was conducted in accordance with Article 46-1 to 3 of the Land Act and its enforcement points, as well as relevant laws and regulations such as Article 184 of the Rules Governing Cadastral Survey. In the re-survey, the section boundaries and parcel numbers were rescheduled and measured by advanced technological equipment such as satellite positioning receivers and electronic distance and latitude measuring instruments. Not only was the accuracy of the survey improved, but the disorganized plot numbers were also rearranged to facilitate cadastral management. At the same time, the urban planning's stacks within the re-survey area will be cleared, rebuilt, and jointly surveyed to make the cadastral map consistent with the urban planning map to facilitate urban planning and land development and construction. Therefore, with the advancement of technology and the development of sophisticated re-survey techniques, conducting a cadastral map re-survey has significant benefits in determining the cadastre, improving cadastral management, reducing land boundary disputes, ensuring public and private property rights, protecting the public, improving service quality and enhancing the credibility of the government.
In 2020, the following areas of 15 sections in 8 districts were re-surveyed: a small section of the Zhutoujiao section in Meinong District; Mianqianpu section, two small sections of Mianqianpu section, and Huzinei section in Yanchao District; Wushulin section, Jiugangkou section, and a small section of Zhuzigang section in Yong-an District; Jiaoboliao section and Guanyinting section in Neimen District; Yuantanzi section in Qishan District; Xipu section and Gupoliao section in Dashu District; a small section of Gangshanying section and a small section of Alian section in Alian District; two small sections of Weizinei section in Hunei District.
