When immovable Real Estate such as land, apartment, or shop is to be bought, what people primarily look at is the parcel situation. The answers to various questions such as the zoning status and the right ownership status of the real estate in question can be learned by parcel inquiry.
What is a Parcel?
In general, the parcel is a separated piece of land whose boundaries are determined according to zoning and title laws. Parcels are also classified as zoned and unzoned. Article 18 of the Zoning Law, popularly known as the 18 applications, Parcels separated according to Article 18 of the parcels zoned. Parcels that are not allocated according to the article are unzoned parcels. A single person may have rights over the parcel, or more than one person or company, or institution may have rights over the parcel. The best way to find out the exact location of the parcels and their legally drawn boundaries is to make inquiries according to the information written in the land registry.
