Joint Property Association Direct

This service provides information on Joint property associations in Sweden. The product name in Swedish is Samfällighetsförening Direkt.

Brief information

The Joint property association register contains information on:

  • Type of association: Joint property association, road association, joint road association or associations formed under the Act on Joint Facilities (LGA)
  • Company name, organisation number or county code
  • Names and addresses of board members
  • Information on what the association manages, e.g. roads, water supply, sewerage, green areas, bathing and / or boating facilities.

Detailed information can be found under the heading Documentation.

The Joint facility association register has some links to the Real property register but is not formally included in it.

Maintenance and update frequency

The timeliness of the information varies as the associations themselves must report changes in the statutes, composition of the board etc. to Lantmäteriet. The date of the general meeting is entered in the register together with information about the new board members or other information.

When the registry is updated, the changes are immediately available in the direct access service.


Our geodata services are normally available 24/7 and we provide support during working hours.

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.

    Technical framework and standard for direct access services

    Our direct access services are mainly based on standards from W3C (new window) and OGC, The Open Geospatial Consortium (new window).

    The service interfaces are SOAP or REST based where object types are in many cases built using GML (Geography Markup Language) or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) to describe its geographical properties.

    The services are of the nature 'question-answer' where the consumer (user's system) sends a service call with search terms or selection parameters over the Internet and receives a list with one or more geographical objects in response.

    To get there quickly start and test the services before they are integrated in your own system, a tool such as SOAP-UI or Postman can be used. SOAP UI (new window) and Postman (new window) are tools for testing SOAP- or REST-based Webservices.
