What are you going to do with the information?

How personal data in the Real Property Register may be used is governed by the Real Property Register Act (2000:224) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Before we can give you access to personal information in the Property register, we must evaluate your purpose with the use, which means that we will ask what you want to do. The application form is available in both Swedish and English.

Forms for evaluation of purpose for extraction-, notification- and download products

Lantmäteriet also reviews all orders from a confidentiality perspective. Confidentiality applies, among other things, to information concerning total defence if it can be assumed to damage the country's defence, or is considered to constitute a danger to national security if the information is disclosed in accordance with 15 kap 2 § Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act (2009:400). The evaluation may therefore in some cases take from three to five working days.
