  -> I often see this type of phrase in contracts and I'm not surprised when I see one. It is long and wordy, this is why I also suggested "n'est aucunement acquise", so now the Asker can choose or find something different ;)

agree  Germaine: avec "si la part n'est aucunement acquise" (la phrase est déjà longue...)
