Mapping Checklist

Currently we find that on average over 15% of applications lodged for registration are rejected often for issues relating to the application map. In order to further assist you in ensuring that application maps are correctly presented for registration, we have produced the following short video. This video covers the main features of an application map acceptable for registration purposes.


Note: The following list is not exhaustive but it does comprise the most common reasons why a map may not be acceptable for registration purposes.

Document Required – Map
  1. Maps lodged at 1:5,000 or 1:10,000 scale may not be acceptable for registration purposes in hard copy form. (see note on Appendix 1)
  2. If you choose to lodge a hard copy Ordnance Survey Map, the map lodged must be an original Ordnance Survey Ireland ‘Land Registry Compliant Map’ referencing the ITM coordinate system. (see Section 1.1, Appendix 1)
  3. If you choose to lodge a Property Registration Authority map product, the map lodged must be an original Land Registry ‘Title Plan’, ‘Special Registration Map’ or ‘Official Map Search’. (see Section 1.1, Appendix 1)
  4. If you choose to lodge a Computer Generated Map the plan must comply with the Land Registry’s current requirements for Computer Generated (Hard Copy) Maps. (see Appendix 4)
  5. If you choose to lodge a CAD file the plan must comply with the Land Registry’s current requirements for lodging boundary geometry in a CAD file. (see Appendix 7(a))
  6. The map scale must be quoted and the map must be true to scale.
  7. Where possible and appropriate the map supplied must be capable of being accurately related to OSi topographic detail on the ITM coordinate Registry map. (see Rule 146(4) of LR Rules 2012)
  8. Boundaries must be clearly and unambiguously defined. (Rule 53 of LR Rules 2012)
  9. If the property is located within a development and an approved scheme map exists, the map lodged must comply with the Land Registry’s current requirements for Development Schemes and be a copy of the scheme map bearing a current Land Registry approval stamp. (see Appendix 3)
  10. If the property is located within a multi-story development and an approved Multi- Storey development map exists, the map lodged must comply with the Land Registry’s current requirements for multi-storey developments and be a copy of the multi-storey map bearing a current Land Registry approval stamp. (see Appendix 5(a))  
  11. The floor plan lodged for multi-storey registrations must identify the ‘Floor Level’. (see Appendix 5(a))
  12. Masking tape or correction fluid must not be used on maps.
