Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course deals with complicated situations regarding real property formation and property rights creation. The course represents a deepening of the subject content in previous real property law courses, mainly focused on the real property formation act. The course also covers parts of older law that still are of significance in real property formation.

Most lectures, exercises, and seminars involve studies of legislation, preparatory works, and precedents, for interpretation of current law.

Intended learning outcomes

The overall objective of this course is to provide profound knowledge of property division and property rights, and the legal instruments for transformation of these, so that the participants by independent interpretation of legislation, preparatory works, precedents, and legal doctrine are able to apply current law to complicated practical situations.

This means that the student after completion should be able to:

  • Identify, combine and present what legal measures, such as plans, permits, property rights, consultations, meetings etc. necessary to implement a complicated real property formation project.
  • Analyze, evaluate, and justify which of several legal solutions that are feasible under current law, and compare and evaluate different types of legal procedures in connection to real property formation issues.
  • Account for the historical development of Swedish real property formation law.
