§ 1. Decriminalised legislation
For the conclusion of a contract concerning the transfer of land, the transferor or the mandated party, if necessary, must request a soil certificate from the OVAM and communicate the contents thereof to the acquiring party.
The private instrument in which the transfer of land is established contains the content of the soil certificate.
In all instruments concerning the transfer of land, the executing official includes the declaration by the transferor that the acquirer or if appropriate the authorised party was informed of the contents of the soil certificate before the concluding of the agreement. The executing official also includes the content of the soil certificate in the legal instrument.
