Our newsflash of 22 December 2016 already described the policy memorandum of Minister of Justice Koen Geens, which explained the key points of the planned reform of Belgium’s property law and law of obligations.

Since 7 December 2017, the draft bills to adapt the Civil Code with regard to property law, the law of obligations and the law of evidence can be consulted on the website of the FPS Justice.
