All the land in Sweden is divided into real property. Lantmäteriets task is to ensure an effective and legally binding real property division as well as to keep track of the composition of the real properties, who the registered owners are and in which banks the mortgages are taken out.
Lantmäteriets management makes it possible to quickly and easily buy, sell or mortgage real property.
A real property can be changed by a cadastral survey procedure. Whether it is about creating or changing a real property, rights; or surveying the boundaries of the real property. If owners of several real properties need to cooperate for a common need, this can also be solved by a cadastral procedure.
Lantmäteriet’s real property register contains 3,2 million objects and consists of information about Sweden’s real property, e.g. taxation values and deeds of title. This information is fundamental for the society and the market economy.
