Types of leases in Norway  

Leases in Norway can be completed following specific regulations, given by different types of legal acts. Such regulations prescribe the period for which the lease contract can be signed (as a general rule, five or ten years), but it is important to know that such contracts can be signed for an indefinite period. Under the Norwegian legislation, companies operating as rental and leasing businesses can enter the following type of leasing activities:
  Ground Leases  a category which is regulated under the Act Relating to  Leasehold  Sites
 Agriculture Property   Leaseholds    a type of agreement that can be concluded under the Act of  Leasehold Agriculture Property
  Domestic Leases  addressing to natural persons, following the regulations prescribed by the Tenancy Act
  Business Leases   types of agreements which are also regulated by the Tenancy   Act, section Commercial Leases

Main regulations prescribed by the Tenancy Act in Norway  

Tenancy Act prescribes that agreements concluded by companies when renting the property can be signed verbally or in writing. In the situation in which the contract is established on a verbal basis, if one of the parties requests a document in this sense, the agreement can be written down. Our team of Norwegian lawyers can offer more details related to this regulation. 
If any type of dispute arises between the parties that have concluded a contract, they can be dealt with at the Conciliation Court or the Rent Dispute Tribunal, in the case of agreements established between a tenant and a landlord. In this particular situation, it is important to know that the landlord can request a deposit with a value representing maximum 6 months of rent.
