Abstract

In this article we analyze recent case law of the Belgian Supreme Court (Cour de Cassation, 24 Feb and 18 March 2011) and Constitutional Court (16 Sept. 2010) on a technical issue of marital property law in community regimes: do we need to apply the revalorization rule of art. 1435 CC, taking into account increase in value of a private asset acquired before the marriage and partially financed with community funds during the marriage, paying off the loan contracted for the purchase of that private asset? If there is a sufficient connection between the loan and the financed asset, the answer seems to be affirmative.
