Concession and other permissions

Concession and other permissions


The use of real property may be subject to a permit – a concession – from the authorities. The central act is the Act relating to concession in the acquisition of real property.

In principle, there is a licence obligation for all land resources outside LNR areas (landuse, nature and recreational areas). An important exception, however, is built-up property up to approximately 25 acres, when full and surface cultivated land is no larger than approximately 8,6 acres. Such properties are licence-free unless the municipality has introduced a concession obligation by regulations. In some municipalities, a so-called zero limit for concessions has been introduced, which means that the transferee must complete a declaration form, which is sent to the municipality, or apply for a concession.

The legislation also contains a law on concessions for rights to waterfalls, etc. (the Waterfall Rights act).
