HET NIEUWE APPARTEMENTSRECHT: EEN ANALYSE VAN DE HERVORMING DOOR DE WET VAN 2 JUNI 2010, pp. 127-144, V. Sagaert & A.-L. Verbeke, eds., Brugge, Die Keure, 2010
In this article I evaluate the new Belgian Appartment Act according to the principles I have proposed in an earlier publication in TBO 2008, 172-176: solidarity, transparance and information, pragmatism. My conclusion is that the new law offers good solutions for most of the problems. I argue however that the new law is envisaging too exclusively the large appartment complexes without taking into account sufficiently the practical issues for small buildings. I therefore urge the legislator to create more reasonable exceptions to some of the rules for small builings. Hence, in my view there should be an appartment law with two speeds. One with the full legislative framework for larger buildings, and one downsized for small buildings.
