In Norway, three out of four households own their housing. As a foreign citizen, both housing (detached house, townhouse, owner section apartment/condominium, housing cooperative) and rules related to buying a home and owning their own home can be difficult to understand. The rules and requirements are also different from detached houses and townhouses to owner section apartment/condominiums and housing cooperatives.
Let our key note speaker from BATE, will navigate you threw the jungel of information! They will address the following topics:
🏡 Market (renting or buying?)
🏡 Budget and loans
🏡 Regulations and procedures in the rental marked vs buyers marked
🏡 Viewing, bidding, buying and contracts
