Abstract: "Rules about land consolidation are found already in the oldest known Norwegian laws. The first Land Consolidation Act came in 1821, and in 1859 the Land Consolidation Service was established. The Land Consolidation Service has mainly worked with dissolving joint ownership. In the later years this process has slowed sown, and consolidation courts in Norway are now working more and more with designing rules for the use of Joint ownership instead of dissolving them. In this paper the reasons for this will be discussed, and the results of a case where the court designed rules for a joint ownership will be gone through."
