Round Table: Security Rights over Real Property in EuropeCLC is a founding member of the Round Table on Security Rights over Real Property at the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp) which aims to contribute to transparency of the law of security rights over real property in Europe, inter alia, by means of country-specific publications.
For this purpose not only country-specific publications are being prepared, but also cross-border information is being provided, which enables a comparison and assessment of the legal situation in specific countries.
Declared experts in security rights over real property from as many as 37 countries meet twice a year for workshops and have developed diagrams which provide quick access to diverse information and legal facts on registration, usability and exploitation of security rights over real property.
