The participation shares and additional shares of Metsäliitto Cooperative can be transferred to another member of the Cooperative. Such a transfer is carried out following changes in forest ownership – for example, if a forest estate jointly owned by spouses is transferred to the widow, or if an estate’s forests are transferred to a forest partnership.
To do this, complete the change form, indicating the shares to be transferred. If the recipient is not yet a member of Metsäliitto Cooperative, they must also apply for membership either electronically or by using the paper membership form.
If the transferor is an estate, a copy of the estate inventory deed must be appended to the transfer of membership investments, indicating the acquisition of the shares. The forms, including appendices, can be submitted to our customer service.
If ownership changes occur within a forest partnership (for example, if one of the partners gives up their ownership), only an update to the list of owners is required; no transfer is necessary.
