  • Tax issues relating to purchases and sales.
  • Changes in tax residence (tax migration).
  • Contracts for letting properties outside Norway and the taxation of rental income.
  • Co-ownership contracts regulating use, allocation of costs etc.
  • Inheritance, including the administration of estates both in and outside. Norway
  • Drafting wills under foreign law to simplify the distribution of decedents’ estates in foreign countries.

We regularly collaborate with attorneys-at-law in countries in which Norwegians often inherit property or emigrate to.
