Flexibility, Security and Efficiency of Security Rights over Real Property in Europe Volume III (Bd. 39)
Results of the workshop of 4th/5th September 2008 held in Berlin
In 1989 the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp) – at that time under the name of the Association of German Mortgage Banks (VDH) – began to examine the legal framework for real estate financing in the individual European legal systems. Its groups of experts devised lists of questions that dealt both with the topics of mortgage and land register law, and with the issue of what happens to mortgages in enforcement and insolvency proceedings. The studies prepared related in each case to one legal system and contained only occasional comparative law references.
