Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course covers the private law regulation of rights of user to real property (including buildings on leased land), and what distinguishes such rights. The main focus of the course is on rent, leasehold and tenant ownership. The part covering rent deals with the rules in the Land Code, Chapter 12. Land Code and Rent Negotiation Act, and in the part on leasehold the rules in the Land Code, Chapters 8-11 are covered. In addition, it also covers the property rules of the Land Code in Chapters 7, 17 and 18 and the title registration regulation in the Land Code, Chapters 19-24, as well as the Law on leasehold and rent tribunals. When it comes to tenant ownership the Law on tenant ownership is in focus, but dispositions of tenant ownerships, such as sale and mortgage are covered, as well as attachment and conversion from rent to tenant ownership. In addition, the rules of the tenant ownership association are covered. To a limited extent the course includes other rights of user than rent, leasehold and tenant ownership, primarily site leasehold.
