Land court cases

The land courts deal with disputes and appeals arising from surveying operations. The most common case types are the divisions, parcellings and encumbrances referred to in the Surveying Act, as well as the procedures under the Expropriation Act and the Private Roads Act. The procedure is very similar to the civil procedure in a district court.

Land court cases are dealt with by the District Courts of South Savo, East Uusimaa, Kanta-Häme, Lapland, Oulu, Ostrobothnia, North Savo,and Southwest Finland. In the district court, the composition dealing with land court matters is still referred to as a land court. The decisions of a land court can be appealed against to the Supreme Court.
