Foreign legal frameworks
The vdp is playing an ongoing role in debate on the harmonization of real estate and lending legislation within the scope of EU eastern enlargement and the transformation of East European states.
Since 2005, the vdp has organized workshops with leading experts from various European countries. At each of the round table discussions, which are held over several days, analyses and comparisons have been conducted of the use in practice of the most flexible security right over real property used in each country, and the role it plays with regard to the land.
Some of the results of the round table discussions have been published as country reports, but above all in the form of charts, and geographical country overviews, each based on the same questions. These make a direct comparison of individual countries possible.
The circle of the countries examined and the content of the questions on the basis of which the countries are examined are expanded constantly to meet requirements that arise in practice.
