Home / European Land Registry Network / Sweden / Precautions when opening a new land registry file

1. Are there any special precautions at the land registry services in order to avoid errors when opening a new file?

Yes, various precautions are stipulated in different Swedish laws. An application for land registration (registration of title, mortgage, registration of usufructs etc.) requires a valid identification of the immovable. Specific control mechanisms prevents errors.

2. If an error occurs and a land registry file describes the same immovable for a second time, what is legally determined to do?

Non applicable. See answer above to question 1.

Is there a different procedure depending on whether the new file repeats totally a previous file or only a part of a previous file?

Non applicable.

3. Once the error is identified what happens to the rights and the charges registered in both files? And what about subsequent entries?

Non applicable.

4. Is there any internal (intra-system) land registry procedure to solve this sort of problem or does it require judicial intervention?

Non applicable.
