Practical case

Pietro had inherited a house from his parents’ succession. He is registered in the land book as sole owner. After that, he marries Sofía and they establish their family home at that house, where they live with their two little children.

Now, Pietro has received a very interesting offer for the house from an Investing company called Paradise Rooms SA, so he decides to sell it. Pietro and the representative director of the company have signed the purchase contract before the notary and have sent it to the Land Registry to register the new owner.

Pursuant to article 215 of the Luxembourg Civil Code, the spouse has to give her agreement concerning the transfer of the family home. This has to be checked by the notary. The Land registry will register the notary deed without any further requirements.
