Vinge wins in the Swedish Supreme Court – Vinge acts as counsel in important case for the real estate sector

March 31, 2021

The Swedish Supreme Court has delivered its judgment today in a case concerning the formal requirements in the Swedish Tenant-Owners Associations Act in connection with so-called preliminary agreements for newly produced tenant-owner properties.

The issue in the case related to how the statutory requirement relating to the “estimated date of the grant” should be construed. In its judgement, the Swedish Supreme Court stated that an estimated date for the grant can be specified as a time interval. The agreement in question specified a period of six months, which was thus deemed to fulfil the formal requirement according to the Swedish Tenant-Owners Associations Act. The Swedish Supreme Court’s judgement constitutes an important clarification for the real estate sector.

The successful tenant-owners’ association was advised by Vinge through advokat Cecilia Möller Norsted and advokat Philip Danielsson.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
