Please note

The data is updated at the end of each month. Very recent subdivisions may not appear until the end of the next month.
The "title owner" information is sourced from Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and only shows one name from the title even though there may be other owners.
The "Reserves and Public Land" information is sourced from LINZ and may not show the current status of the land. A title search should be done to check any land status issues.
