Problem

Only common law terminology (grants and instruments) is used in the heading of the English version.

Solution

In the heading of the English version, the term "instruments" is replaced by "concessions" for civil law purposes. In civil law in English, the term "concession" is used when referring to the concession of lands of the public domain, as provided by section 5 of the Federal Real Property and Federal Immovables Act.
