Proprietorship (Section B)

  1. Proprietorship or class of title

    Main right / Primary real right : OWNERSHIP
    Local nomen iuris: Omistusoikeus
    The registration of ownership, i.e. the registration of title, is called “Lainhuuto” in the Finnish LR.
    Definition: Ownership is the main right in the system of property rights in Finland. The object of ownership is a real estate as an independent cadastral unit (ID = cadastral number), or a share thereof or a parcel thereof. Every one of these three entities is treated as a folio of their own in the LR. The folio is identified by the real estate cadastral number, by the same added with the amount of the shares owned or by the same added with the parcel ID. The right of ownership consists of an exclusive right of possession, right of use and right of disposition with regard to the object of ownership.

    Main right / Primary real right : LEASEHOLD
    Local nomen iuris: Vuokraoiekus
    The registration of leasehold is called “Erityinen oikeus” in the Finnish LR, supplemented with a designation “Vuokraoikues”.
    Definition: This folio creating right, leasehold, confers the holder of the right an exclusive right of possession with regard to the object of the leasehold (a certain land area). It also provides the holder of the right with a right of use of the object according to the purpose of the leasehold, more precisely defined in the lease contract. The holder of the right is also entitled to transfer his / her right to a third party without a prior consent of the landlord. The object of this folio creating right can be identified in the LR by a specific ID number for this kind of objects; ID number consists of the cadastral number of the real estate added with a leasehold designation (e.g. 123-12-21-1-L1, L1 being the leasehold designation).
