Excessive lending. Court rejects claim Rabobank for repayment of residual debt

The breach of the duty of care of the bank in granting a mortgage loan may have far-reaching consequences for the bank, as can be seen in a decision of the “Midden-Nederland” court of 12 October 2016.

Carrier liable for damage after delivery

On 21 June 2016, the Arnhem-Leeuwarden Court of Appeal has rendered an interesting decision on the period of liability of the carrier. The main rule is that the carrier has done his duties, when he delivers the received goods without damage or delay. Therefore, the moment of delivery is an important moment for the transport contract. Parties may disagree on whether or not there has been a delivery and, therefore, whether or not it is the end of the liability period of the carrier.

Dutch bankruptcy law

Bankruptcy in The Netherlands is governed by the Dutch Bankruptcy Act. Intra-EU cross-border insolvency proceedings are governed by Council regulation (EC) No 1346/2000 of 29 May 2000 on insolvency proceedings. Cross-border insolvency proceedings that do not fall within the scope of the EU Insolvency Regulation will be governed by the general rules of Dutch Private International Law.
