Catalan Law Meeting in Tossa

Since 1982


After two postponements because of the pandemic, the twenty-first Catalan Law Symposium was finally held, to great acclaim, on 23 and 24 September, in Tossa de Mar, entitled “Purchase-sales, leases and new temporary uses of assets”.

This year saw the 40th anniversary celebrations of the Catalan Law Symposium in Tossa, which was officially opened by His Honour José Antonio Xiol Ríos, who discussed jurisdiction in civil matters and, in particular, constitutional limits to the bases of contractual obligations.

The main subject in the first block of papers was about the challenges which the requisite transposition of the recent EU Directives 770 and 771/2019 into national law represented for the new regulations of the Sixth Book of the Catalan Civil Code, as well as the problems that the partial unconstitutionality of the registration system for resolutive conditions in land entailed in property sales. The second block focused on leasing goods in general, looking at European principles in the subject and at the already very advanced pre-legislative work in the Catalan Codification Commission. The Friday block focused on a subject of considerably topicality and social interest, urban-property leases, with a talk on permanent housing rent, and another discussing the Executive Decree on social rent and other rules in this highly complex area. Finally, the last block of papers concentrated on urban-property renting for other uses.

This edition’s new developments included three round tables on the topical issues of movable- and immovable-property renting, with social players and expert in very different fields, besides those strictly related to law.

We want to thank everyone attending for your participation!
