Lantmäteriet has three divisions

Each is responsible for different business areas.

The Cadastral Services Division is responsible for property division: in other words, it makes decisions on new property units and making changes to existing boundaries.
The division is also responsible for making decisions concerning joint properties, easements and rights of way.

The Land Registration Division examines, makes decisions on and registers title transactions, mortgages, site leasehold rights and other rights that are then recorded in the Real Property Register. The division also makes decisions on and handle stamp duty and charges.

The Geodata Division collects, stores and update information about Sweden´s geography and properties, and makes this information available to the general public, the public sector and the private sector.

Agency-wide units

We have seven agency-wide units that represent Lantmäteriet’s common resources for issues concerning the following: 

  • finance
  • human resources
  • development and IT
  • communications
  • sustainability
  • document management
  • service exports


Lantmäteriet has a turnover of approximately SEK 1.9 billion per year. Just over 70 per cent of the revenue comes from fees. Otherwise, operations are financed by public funds (appropriations).

Our environmental policy

We contribute to the sustainable ownership and use of land and water within the framework of urban development in Sweden and abroad.

We contribute by regularly updating our own environmental goals as part of society’s common efforts to achieve environmental objectives.

Environmental considerations are a natural part of our activities. Our internal and external environmental work is an important part of our profile.

We participate actively in the development of the rules that govern the Swedish real estate system and the planning and development process. Our mission includes contributing environment-related property information and geographical information based on society’s needs.

We strive to achieve resource-efficiency in our work and choose renewable resources that maintain or increase the benefits for our stakeholders.

We comply with applicable laws and ordinances and live up to society’s expectations of us.
