Nouveau code civil néerlandais - Livre troisième - Du droit patrimonial en général
Publisher(s)Kluwer Law and Taxation Publishers
This is Book 3 of the trilingual edition and translation (Dutch to English and French) of the Netherlands Civil Code ("Burgerlijk Wetboek"), as it was published in 1990, now sold out and no longer reprinted. Book 3 deals with general aspects of patrimonial law, which comprises what in common law are called property rights, torts and contracts. In the English translation, special care has been taken to use civil law English, as it is used in Quebec, Scotland, South Africa and Louisiana. It was felt that using civil law terminology will put the common law reader on guard against creating "false friends" between civil law institutions and the more or less corresponding common law ones (such as hypothec and mortgage).
