Property law

A thorough understanding of property law is vital for dealing correctly with issues relating to other areas of law, such as insolvency law, transport law, business law as well as the law of persons and family law, intellectual property law, and attachment law and execution law.

Company or private person

Property law covers all rules relating to a company’s assets or those of a private person, for example the question about whether a contract exists, the applicability of general terms and conditions on that contract, the termination or breach of a contract, the transfer of property, the existence of security rights such as a pledge or mortgage and the position of creditors in the event of bankruptcy. However, this also includes the (sometimes complex) distribution of shared assets if the parties separate from each other. This is just a small selection from the number of potential examples in which general (and specific) understanding of property law is essential.

Basis for every case

In virtually every case questions arise which can be reduced to the basis of property law: the law of property and the law of obligations. The law of property regulates the relationship between a natural person/legal entity and property; the law of obligations regulates the mutual relationship between natural persons/legal entities.
