A new deed must be filled out for every new transfer. This applies both when the entire property shall be transferred to new owners and when adjusting the ownership ratio between co-owners. It is not necessary to produce the existing deed when the property is transferred.
The conveyance form must be issued in two sets of originals, or one set of originals and one certified photocopy. This can be either two originals or one original and one copy.
Useful information before filling out the deed
Before filling out the forms for registration, it is important to obtain an overview of what is registered on the property. The easiest means of doing this is to access the website “Se eiendom” (View property). Among other things, the website provides information about the identity of the title holder and whether encumbrances are registered on the property.
There are three methods of searching:
The address of the property.
Municipality, land and title number. If the property has a section number and/or leasehold number, this also needs to be added. You search as follows: Name of municipality or municipality number (4 digits)-land number/title number (section/lease number).
If you only know where the property is located on a map, you can also find the property on the map at norgeskart.no.
In many instances, the person who receive a property, either by way of sale, gift or other reason, must register a self-declaration of exemption from the concession requirement or apply for a concession from the municipality.
Please check if this is required before you send the deed for registration. You may risk the deed being sent back without being registered. Please contact the municipality where the property is located to clarify this before you send the deed for registration.
Guide to filling out the deed
Follow the points below for assistance in filling out the deed.
Please enter the name, address and national identity number (11 digits) of the person who is sending the deed for registration. If the sender is a company, please write the organization number. The sender will receive the registered document and invoice for registration fees and possibly stamp duty.
If you enclose a letter, the person who has signed the letter will be considered the sender, even if another person or company is listed as the sender on the actual deed.
A reference number is optional, but if you would like the invoice to be identified with a reference number please inform us of your chosen reference in this field.
Please fill out the municipality number and name of the municipality, including the cadastral numbers of the property that is to be transferred. The fields for lease number and section number only need to be filled out if the property has these numbers.
Undivided share (ideell andel)
Please enter the share of the property that is to be transferred. Please state this as a fraction, for example, 1/1 or 1/2.
If the transfer does not concern a dwelling on leased land, cross off “no” in the first field and hop over the next three fields.
If the property is a section, state the section’s co-ownership ratio in field 5.
Leasehold sites (overdragelsen gjelder bygg på festet grunn)
If the transfer concerns a dwelling on leasehold land, please tick the box. Also tick “yes” for transfer of the leasehold interest. The next fields concern whether or not the lessor needs to approve the transfer. If you are uncertain about what you need to tick off, please check the leasehold contract and the rules in the Norwegian Ground Lease Act. If a signature from the lessor is required, the lessor should sign at the bottom of page 2 of the deed.
If you are attaching a lesser part of a property to the main property that is transferred, please tick "yes".
Character, use of land and type of residence
Please tick the appropriate box.
The purchase price is what the recipient pays for the property. In most cases, this will take the form of money, but may also include the transfer of loans etc. State the total value of the consideration in NOK. If the transfer is a gift, please write NOK 0.
Type of sale (omsetningstype)
Please tick the appropriate box. If the transfer is a gift between spouses, this must be agreed to in a marital agreement.
Please enter the amount that constitutes the estimated market value for calculating stamp duty. This is the sales value of the property, also known as the present market value.
For a sale in the open market, the estimated market value in section 3 will often be the same amount as the purchase price in section 2. If the transfer is a gift or, for other reasons, you pay less than full market value, please state the full market value in section 3.
Exemption from stamp duty
If you are entitled to an exemption from stamp duty, please cite the section in the Norwegian Stamp Duty Act or parliamentary resolution that authorises the exemption rule. Please write some key words about what this pertains to and enclose necessary documentation.
Different amounts in section 2 and 3
If you are not entitled to an exemption from stamp duty and the amounts in sections 2 and 3 are different, please provide us with an explanation as to why these are different. If you ticked “gift”, this is an adequate explanation and you do not need to provide further details.
Please write the name and national identity number of the person or persons who the property is being transferred from. If it is a company that will be transferring the property, please enter the company’s organization number.
Under “undivided share” you need to enter the share of the property that will be transferred. If there are multiple persons, you will need to state the ownership interests that are being transferred and from whom. The aggregate total of the fractions in section 4 must be the same as in section 1 and section 5.
Please enter the name and national identity number of the person or persons who will receive the property. If it is a company that will receive the property, please enter the company’s organization number.
If one or more of the new owners are foreign nationals, they must enter a D-number instead of a national identity number. If they do not have a D-number, they can apply to be assigned one together with the submission of the deed.
Permanent resident of Norway (fast bosatt i Norge)
It is not necessary to fill out the field entitled "Permanent resident of Norway”.
Agreements that can be registered
This field applies to information that can be registered, and should only be filled out if required. Here you can write new agreements which relate to the property and that will be entered in connection with the transfer. This may include right of way, right of use, water rights, pre-emption rights or other rights in real estate.
What should not be entered here?
Purely financial agreements relating to payment and the like cannot be registered. If something is added that cannot be registered, you can risk the document being returned without being registered.

When using loose sheets of paper, the issuer must sign at the bottom of each individual sheet of paper. The issuer is the person who transfers the property which the deed pertains to. Remember that the issuer must also sign in section 9.
