Change, merge and share a property

A property can be changed in different ways. You can divide or merge properties, or transfer land between properties. Our method of helping you when a property is to be changed is usually through a surveying service. Here we describe some of the most common requirements for changing a property.

Sharing a property

You can divide a property by a subdivision or division. To help you with any of these measures, we carry out a surveying service.

In our e-service, you can make an application for a surveying service. You can also complete and follow ongoing cases directly in the service.

Plot

Plot is when a piece of land is separated from a property and forms a new own property. This can happen, for example, in connection with someone buying land to build a house. Partitioning can also take place without there being any purchase as a basis.

Split

Splitting is when a property owned by several people is divided so that all co-owners get their own new property. In the event of a division, the original property ceases to exist at the same time as new properties are formed.

3D properties

A three-dimensional property (3D property) can be below or above ground. Underground garage and owner-occupied apartments are examples of 3D properties.

Merge properties - merge

If you own several properties or plots, you can merge them into one property. This is called aggregation. To help you with the merger, we carry out a surveying service.

In our e-service, you can make an application for a surveying service. You can also complete and follow ongoing cases directly in the service.

More about a merger

To make a merger, the properties must be owned by the same person and that the properties have equal legal conditions.

If the properties do not have the same legal conditions, you can apply to transfer land through a property regulation.


Transferring land between properties - property regulation

Notice of possible measures and cost

It is only after you have submitted your application, and that an administrator has been assigned your case and begun their investigation, that you can be informed of the possibilities. for the measure and what it may cost.

It is the time we need to spend on the case and the number of properties affected that determines the price.

If for some reason we can not implement the case, or if you withdraw your application, we will charge for:

  • the administrative handling of your application
  • the time we have already put in
  • the work of closing your case.
