Afrikaans term or phrase: voetstoots
I am still struggling with Afrikaans legal terms in a contract written in English.

"The Purchaser shall be deemed to have acquired such ownership voetstoots."

Does it mean "as is"?

Eivind,
The term is used in English as well. It implies buying without any guarantees.

I see that in van Dale it is given as: at the buyer\'s risk.
