Explanation: acc Sv En Affärslexikon.
Acc to ref below,
"Lien" means a charge against or an interest in property to secure payment of a debt or performance of an obligation, and includes a security interest created by agreement, a judicial lien obtained by legal or equitable process or proceedings, a common-law lien, or a statutory lien.
Seems to fit the context. But I am not a legal expert.
May sound vague, but has a specific meaning and def. i.e. in Handbook of Am. Business Law Terms, Black's Law Dict: 'a property interest created by agreement or by operation of law (I take this to mean an automatic lien) to secure performance of an obligation (esp. repayment of a debt). although the UCC (US Uniform Comm. Code)limits the creation of a sec. int. to personal property, the Am. Bankruptcy Code defines the term to mean a 'lien created by agreement' - i.e. a contractual lien.
Problem is how to dovetail with nyttjanderätt: 'or other security interest or right to use.'
BTW, equitable interest or charge is parochially Eng. and refers to an informal arrangement -> the formailites haven't been complied with, but may still be valid and take effect 'in equity'.
