Enforcing ship mortgages under Norwegian law
Norway | 12 October 2011

The general rule under Norwegian law is that a mortgagee seeking to enforce a ship mortgage is not entitled to take over, sell or otherwise dispose of a mortgaged vessel without first commencing proceedings before a Norwegian court. In order to file a petition for enforcement in Norway, a mortgagee must establish the validity of the claim and the basis of enforcement.
