Subdivision and reallotment

Maybe you want to divide up your property so that your grown children can get a part of it? Then help from the Land Survey to determine the new boundaries. Subdivision and property regulation are the two most common ways to change property boundaries. Administrative surveyor Kristina Lindqvist tells how it's done!

From 1628 to present

At the beginning of the 17th century, the surveyor went from drawing maps, often for military purposes, to helping the court in border disputes between villages. Later, surveyors were hired for the big Swedish agricultural land reforms. Per Rune Karlsson talks about the role of the surveyor through the ages.

How does an easement work?

Easement is a right for a property to use another property's road, well, jetty, etc. The right is tied to a certain property, not to a certain person. Lantmäteriet's lawyer David Fridh goes through how it works!
