The Privatization is one of the most crucial trends recently. The Privatization can be defined as a transfer of the state tasks to private sector. The transfer can occur entirely or partly. The privatization can be mentioned for various fields traditionally in the responsibility of the Sate. The cadastre is also one of these fields. On the other hand, as known, cadastral procedure consists of various stages such as adjudication, cadastral survey, registration, processes or approvals, updating cadastral maps and registers and transactions etc. Traditionally, all of these stages have been in the responsibility of the State but in the course of time, private sector has started to take part in some stages. In this context, for cadastre, using of the term public-private partnership will be more suitable than the privatization. Indeed, public- private partnership has been mentioned in many works. At the result of these works, that participation of private sector in cadastre is required and inevitable is agreed. But, what stages have to be executed by the state and what stages can be undertaken by private sectors has been still discussed. The role of private sector in cadastre has also been discussed in Turkey. In Turkey, theoretically, it is accepted that cadastral survey can be undertaken by private sector but in practice this cannot be applied sufficiently. So, in this study, for Turkey, public-private partnership is examined. Besides, as Turkey has been a candidate country to the EU since 1999, the current situation of public-private partnership in cadastre in the EU countries is also investigated. Eventually, it is purposed a model concerning what the role of private sector should be in the cadastre of future.
