Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course begins with a short section on the legal method and its application in a real estate context. Thereafter, the focus is on civil-law rules on property and rights in real estate, which are mainly found in the Land Code. This part first covers what real property is, how it is divided into property units and fixtures. Thereafter, it covers the transfer of real estate, primarily property purchases. Mortgages of real estate and the legal effects of mortgages are treated as well as forced sales of real estate. Furthermore, the law on user rights, especially rent and leasehold, and easements are dealt with. Also, the law of property rights and title registration are covered.

Intended learning outcomes

The overall purpose of the course is to provide knowledge about the legal regulation of real propery, its division into real property units, dispositions concerning real property units and rights in real property units, in order that the student be able to apply the knowledge when solving practical legal problems.

After having taken the course the student shall be able to:

  • Identify legal problems and find the applicable legal rules concerning real property and rights in such property.
  • Apply the relevant legal rules when solving legal problems concerning real property and rights in such property, and to explain the reasons for the application of the rules to the problem.
