Law/Patents - Real Estate
|French term or phrase: objet des présentes|
|Hello: I keep running into this phrase used as a subclause in a Contrat de Vente -- real estate contract. Example: "L'acquéreur déclare finance l'immeuble, objet des présentes, ay moyen de....... " etc. Thanks in advance for any help.|
|property/building etc., subject of this contract|
I'd use this and combine it with aforementioned property/building (or whatever immeuble is) (said property for USA) so you're not using the same thing all the time. I'd start with subject of this contract.

|Thanks for your input. Much appreciated. I'm taking a legal translation course and our teacher, as well as an attorney friend of mine, has been encouraging me to use as much "plain English" as possible, and less "legalese". I do know that many lawyers prefer legalese. If I were working for them, I would be happy to oblige but for the purposes of my class and my own development, I think that something like "subject of this contract" is best. Thank you very much again. Best,|
