Despite a bad start, in the end the dialogue between the European Institutions and the European property industry worked well.Property conveyancing process is helpful for making the transfer of properties title exchange and this will be performed from one person to another.

Crucially, the Commission abandoned its plans to empower environmental groups to clean up private land through court order and present the owner with the bill. Such groups will have the right to submit observations to the competent authority request action have the request considered and receive an answer.

The Commission Proposal of January 2002 reflected the line taken by EPF for years by its Planning & Environment Committee under the chairmanship of Aart Hordijk. The focus is now on today’s pollution by the industrial operator, not on historical pollution.

By the start of 2001, EPF had persuaded the Commission that any transition which enabled new Member States to retain restrictions on property investment would be a major injury to the coherence of the Internal Market, not just for the property industry, but for banking and insurance as well. Which already in themselves comprise a significant proportion of commercial property investment, the Polish authorities would have had no difficulty in extending the restriction to shopping centres themselves, as modern shopping centres all comprise major and increasing leisure areas and activities, central to shopping centre marketing strategy.

In the autumn of 2001, Poland tried for a seven year transition for property investment in recreational areas. EPF explained the true extent and gravity of any such concession. i.e. real estate projects combining offices with one or other aspect of recreational space, a very common phenomenon.
