The new property law entered into force on 1 September 2021.

Newspapers discuss polemics about balls falling into the neighbour's garden and what is allowed in that case.

One would almost forget that there is much more to property law than only that. 

The consequences of this new legislation are significant and far reaching. Both investors and entrepreneurs are very much concerned.

Seeds of Law anticipated this with its e-book "Together on a roadtrip through the new property law", which gives you an insight into a number of important topics of the new property law in a very simple and clear way.

1. Why property law is so important?

Property law contains a whole range of aspects such as property and shared ownership, usufruct and bare ownership, easements, ground lease and the right of superficies, but also collateral securities such as special privileges, the pledge, the mortgage and the right of retention.

This is the reason why at Seeds of Law, we have asked Victoria to take you on a road trip with her "Property Container" through some important topics that have been selected to suit your (construction) business.

2. What is this e-book about?

Victoria takes you on a road trip with her "Property Container" through some important topics that have been selected to suit your (construction) business.

At each site during this road trip, Victoria gives you the appropriate information which you can pick up from the Property Container.

It is important to know that, except otherwise provided by law, it is generally acceptable to derogate contractually from the provisions of property law, as most of these provisions are not mandatory.

Therefore, you have to check prior to entering into an agreement, whether you can derogate from the specific provision of property law, so that you can prevent the relevant provision and/or contract from being declared null and void.

During your road trip, Victoria will make a stop with the Property Container at the following "sites":

  1. Property use rights, with a special focus on joint and several liability;

  2. Preventive action towards neighbours, o.a. in case of construction works;

  3. The voluntary shared ownership;

  4. Conversion works in case of forced shared ownership;

  5. Easements and the maintenance obligation;

  6. Easements and the consequences in case of waiver;

  7. Usufruct and its duration;

  8. Usufruct and maintenance works, contribution obligation and accession;

  9. The new rights of superficies with special emphasis on volume construction and comparison with the figure of ground lease agreements.

Be sure to have all this information and wait no longer to download your e-book by clicking on the following link:

We wish you a lot of fun and success on this road trip through the new property law.
