Execution procedures according to swedish law

FRÅGA
Hello, I have a question regarding Kronofogden, the debt collectors. My mother was living with me as a guest in my house for a while and she has ended up with unpaid debts. She no longer lives with me now but I am wondering whether the debt collectors can legally harass me for the money she owns, although she was just a guest and owned nothing in my house. Thanks for your reply (sorry, don't know any Swedish).
SVAR

Good evening!

Thank you for posting your question here on Lawline. According to the swedish law Utsökningsbalken (1981:774) 4:th chapter 17 §, property belonging to the person in debt may be subject to seizure by the authorities. According to 4:18 in the same legislation as mentioned above property which can be acessed by the person in debt(for example if the person has a key to your house or if the person regularly stays in your house) may also be seizured by kronofogdemyndigheten, but not if you make a objection about possession of property. If you have documentation or evidence that you are the legal owner of an item, it may not be confiscated.

Best regards,

Carl William Ahlberg
