    Accessibility adaptations in multi-unit buildings – The Swedish approach to achieving universal accessibility in an aging housing stock2019In: Book of Proceedings: 8th Malmö Real Estate Research Conference / [ed] Peter Palm, Malmö: Malmö University , 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish legal framework regarding accessibility is primarily based on the regulations regarding accessibility that can be found in the Planning and Building Act (PBL) and the Housing Adaptation Grant Act (HAGA). PBL imposes technical requirements with respect to all newly construction of buildings. According to PBL, the physical environment in the common areas of a building, indoors as well as outdoors, and in the separate apartments generally are to have good accessibility for persons with reduced mobility or ability to orientate.

    PBL, however, does not provide any technical requirements with respect to older buildings. Since the majority of the multi-unit buildings in Sweden are over 40 years old, the technical requirements of PBL do not govern most residents Sweden, are not binding and therefore not enforceable. For example, it is not possible to require that the owner of an older building increase the general accessibility of the building to meet the standards as laid down in PBL.

    The Swedish approach to achieve universal accessibility in the older part of the housing stock is based to a large extent on public grants and economic incentives, rather than imposing requirements on the owners of multi-unit buildings. HAGA aims at reducing financial obstacles and economically-based objections as to making accessibility adaptations. The grants cover adaptations that an applicant might need within the apartment. This can be, for example, handrails in a bathroom, adjustments needed to get in or around the building’s inside and/or outside common areas. Such can be, for example, the installment of an automatic entrance door, a ramp to enter an outside playground accessible only by steps, or the articulation of surfaces.

    The public grant is a fundamental part of the Swedish approach and political policy with regard to universal accessibility. Together with the technical requirements for new buildings, the national aim of the political policy is to achieve the UN goals laid down in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), to create equality of opportunity and the possibility of full and effective participation and inclusion of disabled persons in society. Making independent living possible for as many persons with disabilities as possible is a fundamental part of achieving this aim.

    The fundamental basis for this approach is generally perceived to be efficient. It has not been substantially questioned or debated. However, whether relying on economic incentives is an efficient approach and a sufficient measure to reduce the current issues of lack of accessibility in a vast majority of the housing stock and achieve the aim of universal accessibility can be questioned. A fundamental challenge with the Swedish approach is that it does not provide tenants or owners of apartments in older multi-unit buildings with any legal rights as to having the necessary adaptations and adjustment work done. The governmental grant is conditioned upon a formal written consent by the owner of the building allowing the applicant to make the adjustments in the building. If the owner of an older building declines a request from a tenant or a tenant owner as to making accessibility adjustments in or around the building, the tenant or tenant owner will not be able to receive any governmental grant and is not entitled to make the adjustments. The unwillingness of a building owner to make adjustments, or to allow adjustments to be made, even at the expense of the public, is a palpable issue in Sweden. The problem however is not perceived to be comprehensive. The fact that some owners do not give their consent to accessibility adjustments also is not considered a matter of substantial relevance for the possibility of achieving the general aim of enhancing the accessibility of the national housing stock. Above all, it has not been considered justified to interfere with the general principle of freedom of ownership to achieve this goal more quickly.

    This project aims to discuss and analyse the Swedish approach to achieving universal accessibility in the older part of the multi-dwelling housing stock. Particularly, the possibility for persons living in multi-unit buildings organized as cooperative housing associations to  apply for public grants and be able to make necessary accessibility adjustments to the common areas of the building are examined. The purpose is to address and explore whether the Swedish approach to accessibility adaptations in the older part of the housing stock by public grants and economic incentives is an expedient and well-balanced measure for achieving the aim of universal accessibility. The current political and legal stances towards accessibility arguably heavily emphasize the protection of the property right of the building owner. This approach neglects recognizing accessibility as a human right and the necessity to balance this right against other rights and competing interests, such as the property rights of the building owner.

    Business tenant protection - For whom? For what? How? Security of tenure within UK, Swedish and Australian law2017In: Australian Property Law Journal, ISSN 1038-5959, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 159-194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Business tenants in many countries are seen to be in need of tenant protection with respect to unfair lease terms and other exploitations by landlords. Small business tenants are particularly vulnerable at the end of a lease term. Harsh and oppressive behaviour by unscrupulous landlords demanding excessive rent increases or substantial one-off fee payments as conditions for renewing business leases has historically forced many tenants to submit to landlord demands even at the risk of business failure. The purpose of providing tenants with statutory protection at the end of a lease term primarily is to balance the bargaining powers of the parties. Providing tenants with such protection reduces their risks for economic losses, affecting the balance of the parties’ bargaining powers throughout the entire lease term. A comparative perspective is used here to explore the different legal approaches and solutions to business tenant protection at the end of a lease term as found in the United Kingdom (‘UK’), Sweden and Australia. The complexity of regulating and balancing the parties’ interests, rights and responsibilities at the end of a lease term in the diverse business tenancy market is examined and analysed. Whether it is possible, feasible or even desirable to legislate tenant protection that fits all interests and purposes is a main theme in this work. A form of tenant protection is sought that at the same time is efficient and flexible. It must be efficient enough to provide protection for tenants, such as the small barber shop on the street corner, and also flexible enough to allow tenants to negotiate at arm’s-length to create and formulate the lease that they want, for example, an international retail company holding a tenancy of large prime location premises.

    Fair Compensation for Telecom Rights in Land in Sweden and the UK2018In: European Property Law Journal, ISSN 2190-8362, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 32-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how the ever-increasing demand for and rapid development of high-speed broadband have influenced the policy for compensation for compulsory grants of telecom rights in land in Sweden and the UK. The article assesses whether the compensation in Sweden and the UK is fair in relation to compensation for other necessary social infrastructures such as water and electricity, consideration for equivalent voluntary rights in land, general principles of expropriation law and the right to peaceful enjoyment of property according to Article 1 in the first Protocol of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR).

    Finansiering med fastigheter som säkerhetsunderlag: Köp, pant, hyra och jordabalkens gränser2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral dissertation examines the extent to which the actual use of commercial premises as security is consistent with how such premises theoretically are to be used for such purposes. The objective is to examine the functionality of the Swedish Land Code (LC)(1970:994) in relationship to the use of alternative financing forms and techniques.

    The theoretical approach for the use of real estate as a security object is that such is achieved by the assignment of a pledge in real estate. With the commercial use of real estate, the real estate pledge is not the only, nor in certain cases even the primary, form of use of real estate for the purposes of security. Financing occurs to a great extent, for example, using real estate leasing, real estate bonds, Mezzanine loans, pledges in shares of a real estate holding company and through ringfencing structures.

    This doctoral dissertation posits that the differences between the actual and theoretical uses of real estate parcels as security can entail that uncertainties and incompatibilities in relationship to LC arise. These problems can be seen to arise as a consequence of internationalization, the categorization of real and personal property, the intent to circumvent rules, the fact that common law based contract structures are applied in a Swedish system, the use of standard agreements, and the requirements of credit ratings.  

    The different uses with respect to real estate and security as discussed in this dissertation are not completely compatible with each other. The use of alternatives and complements to real estate pledges affects the fulfillment of the legal objectives of real estate law and constitutes a problem in relationship to the function of legitimacy. In addition, the intended functions of the alternative financing forms and techniques to a certain degree are impeded by the mandatory regulations, form requirements and debtor creditor legal principles in LC.

    Förskottshyra och deposition – Om skälighet och giltighet av vanligt förekommande villkor2018In: Juridisk Tidskrift, ISSN 1100-7761, E-ISSN 2002-3545, no 2, p. 372-395Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Säkerhetsvillkor i form av exempelvis deposition och bankgarantier är vanligt förekommande vid hyra och fyller en viktig funktion för såväl hyresvärdar som hyresgäster. För hyresvärdar utgör möjligheten att uppställa säkerhetsvillkor ett skydd för hyresvärdens ekonomiska intressen. För hyresgäster kan möjligheten för hyresvärdar att ställa krav på säkerhet vara en avgörande förutsättning för att hyresgästen ska accepteras som avtalspart och ges möjlighet att hyra en lägenhet. Möjligheten att begära säkerhet för hyra eller eventuella kostnader som kan uppkomma på grund av hyresavtalet kan i vissa fall vara avgörande för hyresvärdens vilja att ingå avtal med en viss hyresgäst. Utan möjlighet att begära säkerhet skulle det exempelvis bli svårare för hyresgäster med osäker inkomst eller betalningsanmärkningar att få teckna hyresavtal.

    Även om krav på deposition, förskottshyra eller annan form av säkerhet för betalning av hyra eller andra kostnader som kan uppkomma på grund av ett hyresavtal är vanligt förekommande och fyller en viktig funktion på hyresmarknaden, är den rättsliga effekten i flera avseenden är oklar. I artikeln diskuteras och klargörs vissa grundläggande frågor om rättslig verkan av villkor om säkerhet i hyresavtal. Artikeln behandlar bland annat grundläggande likheter och skillnader mellan vanligt förekommande former av säkerhetsvillkor, grundläggande utgångspunkter och regler avseende villkor om förskottshyra, tolkning av oklara eller ofullständiga villkor om förskottshyra,  under vilka förutsättningar villkor om pant eller deposition kan anses skäliga samt vilka rättsliga konsekvenser som kan följa av en försämring av säkerheten samt risken för att hög deposition eller förskottshyra kan anses utgöra villkor om särskild ersättning.

    Hur står det till med hyresgästens säkerhet? Några tankar om depositionsvillkor, separationsrätt och rätt till ränta2019In: Insolvensrättslig tidskrift, ISSN 2002-3014, E-ISSN 2002-6315, no 3, p. 11-32Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel utreds hyresgästens rättigheter avseende deposition och ränta i förhållande till både hyresvärd och eventuella andra borgenärer, tredje män. Utgångspunkten för utredning och diskussion i artikeln är hur deposition i enlighet med hyresrättslig god sed bör hanteras – att deposition ska placeras på ett avskilt och räntebärande konto och hyresvärden ska redovisa uppburen ränta till hyresgästen. Den diskussion och utredning som förs i artikeln syftar huvudsakligen till att lyfta fram de problem och risker som framförallt hyresgäster som hyr av privata hyresvärdar ställs inför under rådande rättsläge – hyresgäster som antingen hyr någons privata bostad tillfälligt, eller som hyr ut en lägenhet eller ett småhus som ägs av en hyresvärd som inte bedriver uthyrning av bostäder i rörelseform.
