Time Limited Interests in Land (The Common Core of European Private Law)

 
9781107026124: Time Limited Interests in Land (The Common Core of European Private Law)

A comprehensive comparative treatment of six instances of time-limited interests in land as encountered in fourteen European jurisdictions. The survey explores the commercial or social origins of each legal institution concerned and highlights their enforceability against third parties, their content and their role in land development. The commercial purpose of residential and agricultural leases is contrasted with the social aim of personal servitudes (and its common-law equivalent liferent) to provide sustenance for life to mostly family members making the latter an important estate planning device. Whereas the ingrained principles of leases and personal servitudes restrain the full exploitation of land, it is indicated that public authorities and private capital could combine to turn the old-fashioned time-limited institutions of hereditary building lease (superficies) and hereditary land lease (emphyteusis) into pivotal devices in alleviating the acute shortage of social housing and in promoting the fullest exploitation of pristine agricultural land.

Book Description:

How legal institutions of limited duration such as leases and personal servitudes can play an important role in estate planning in European jurisdictions. Moreover, developers and local authorities could use the outdated institutions of building rights and hereditary land leases to advance social housing and upgrade barren agricultural land.
