Abstract

The EU Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR) contains three books on property law. In this article it is examined whether the final version of the DCFR (the so-called "political CFR") should inlcude these books on property law. It is submitted that harmonisation of contract and tort law without also harmonising parts of property law will not be feasible.Furthermore, it is proposed that mortgage law should be added.

Keywords: Property law, comparative law, European law, European private law
