French term or phrase: affectés
This is used twice in this passage - not sure what it means. Any help is appreciated.

A la sûreté et garantie du paiement du prix en principal, frais et accessoires, ainsi que de l’exécution des conditions de la vente, les biens présentement vendus demeureront affectés par privilège spécial expressément réservé par le vendeur, affectés, obligés et hypothéqués conformément à la loi.

1. subject to 2. distributed
Explanation:
The first use is the common sense of 'affecté', meaning 'affected' - "affected by special privilege", or, to put it more naturally, "subject to special privilege". The second use is 'affecté' where this means distributed or allocated - money, eg. can be 'affecté' ie allocated or distributed to to different accounts, projects
