Registering a deed of division of property for protection against debt recovery procedure

Registering a deed of division of property gives protection against the other spouse’s creditors. The registration is not obligatory and it has no effect on the validity of the division of property. 

Do the following 

1. Draw up the deed of division of property. You can use the services of a lawyer or a public legal aid office in the preparation of the document. By using the services of a professional, you can ensure that the agreement meets all legal and other formal requirements. Unfortunately, the Digital and Population Data Services Agency cannot help in the preparation of the agreement. 

2. Print out and complete the application for registering the deed of division of property. If you use an agent, they need a power of attorney to apply for registration. However, a power of attorney is not required if the agent is an attorney, a public legal counsel or a licensed legal counsel.

Application form (the form is in Finnish)
