c. V-1

Provision

Problem

The phrase l'entrée en possession is inappropriate in civil law in French. Furthermore, in the English version, the term "receiving" does not reflect the concept of possession.

Solution

In the French version, the phrase l'entrée en possession ou tout usage is replaced by the phrase ou toute autre forme de disposition ou la possession. In the English version, the term "receiving" is replaced by the term "possession" .
