The Real Estate and Urban Reconstruction Agency in the municipality of Oslo asked Ivar Tollefsen's company Fredensborg about data on eleven residential homes in Oslo, written by Dagens Næringsliv on Saturday.
The Agency is of the opinion that more than 600 real estate rights should be informed of the priority rights of the municipality and are now reviewing purchases. The tenant gives the tenants and the municipality the right to buy rentals on pre-sale, when it is sold.
"We attributed to buyers and sellers of real estate, which we are now aware of, and demanded that they send us a message for judgment," says Eskil Bråten, head of the department for real estate and urban reconstruction in the municipality of Oslo, Dagens Næringslivu.
The magazine has shown in previous articles that several citizens were not informed of the municipality when they were sold to Fredensborg.

– It is unreasonable to claim that this was done consciously
Anders Tveter, attorney at Fredensborg and personal assistant Ivar Tollefsen, tells DN that they will start a dialogue with the municipality in order to clarify the various aspects of the matter.
– In case of purchase and sale of companies that own rental property, we unfortunately forgot to report the transaction to the Municipality of Oslo. These mistakes will deal with how we can be corrected, but it is in its fault to claim that this is done consciously, writes Tweter.
The magazine writes that the agency does not have an overview of which sites are always sold and does not control whether leased property is informed about priority rights.
