Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course starts with a section that treats the division into different rights of use to solid property (including buildings on leased land) and what characterizes such rights. After the initial section, the course is divided into three parts that treat rent, tenant-owner flat and lease. In the section on rent, the rules in chapter 12 of jordabalken (the Swedish Land Code) are covered, as well as hyresförhandlingslagen (law on rent negotiation) and to a certain extent the rules relating to property law in the 7th, 17th and 18th chapters of jordabalken and the law on tenancy tribunals and rent tribunals. Concerning tenant-owner flats, the law on this particular topic (bostadsrättslagen) is in focus, but tenures over the tenant-owner flat, such as sale and pawning, are also treated, as well as seizure of tenant-owner flats and reorganisation from tenancy right to tenant-owner flat. In the course section on lease, the rules in 8-11 chapters of jordabalken are treated, and to a certain extent the property law related rules in chapters 7, 17 and18 of jordabalken.
