In Sweden, real property units can be formed by a process of reallotment (fastighetsreglering) or by the creation of new units. Reallotment may involve, for example, a transfer of land from one property unit to another. New units can be created by subdividing, partitioning or amalgamating existing ones. Real estate law also covers what are known as joint property units (samfälligheter) and joint facilities (gemensamhetsanläggningar, e.g. roads, jetties etc. serving several individual properties).
Construction contracts involve the construction or repair of a building or other structure on another person’s property. Various types exist, including turnkey and direct contracts. Swedish construction law is based largely on standard-form contracts such as AB 04.
