Maintenance and update frequency

Many older rights are lacking in the Real Property Register, for example easements, since before 1972 there were no requirements for these to be registered. For properties formed after 1972, all rights are registered. Easements are registered in connection with the property formation process.

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

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.
