Swedish Land and Cadastral Legislation

Translations into English of the legislation below are available as pdf-files. The enactments, amendments included, have been translated as they were worded in December 2006.

There are also English - Swedish and Swedish - English glossaries. They give a certain standardisation of legal terms, but the word lists will have to be used with care. Some Swedish terms do not even have English equivalents.

The translations are not official and have been made in co-operation between the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the National Land Survey (LMV).

The Acts are also available in printed form. To order the book Swedish Land and Cadastral Legislation (price: 500 SEK), please contact via e-mail:
