Legal issues concerning real estate are addressed within what is referred to as “property law”. In legal practice, property law is categorized into two subfields: general property law and special property law.
General property law is primarily governed by the Land Code (1970:994) and the Housing Act (1991:614), which includes regulations and agreements concerning the transfer and use of properties. Key legal areas pertain to, among other things, property acquisition, access rights, property transfers, ownership, and property leasing. In that light, frequent issues include, for example, mortgages, corporatization of properties, property defects, formal prerequisites, and lease agreements.
Special property law, on the other hand, is partially regulated by the Environmental Code (1998:808) and the Planning and Building Act (2010:900). Special property law is further subdivided into land law and environmental law. Issues within special property law can, for example, include matters related to property formation, building permits, zoning, public road construction, and infrastructure.
