English translation:execute (the sale) by deed / execute the deed of sale
Explanation:
Whilst there would appear to be no special meaning of this ordinary word in legal contexts, it is used a lot in contexts where a particular event or undertaking is to be rendered valid or confirmed by a deed. I think that meaning can work here. I would agree with Mats that "substantiate" conveys the right meaning but must say that in English law, "substantiate" would perhaps not be the preferred term. In French, the I think « valider, authentifier » are synonymous here but we just would not say "validate" in GB English.

If I stick my neck out, I might just vouch for moving away from the original and describe a bit more what is actually going on. How about : « execute by deed »?

"Likewise, if either party should refuse to execute the sale by deed...". Transfers of property have to be executed by deed (acte) and this does sound weighty enough for the final signature in my view.

Explanation:
refuse to sanction the sale

given the "acte authentique" I would use the formal word "sanction" which maintains the sense of repeat, but officially

agree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: As with the previous answer, I agree that the meaning is conveyed but perhaps not the right word in GB legalese anyway!

Explanation:
I agree with the sugegstion of 'sanction', though in fact I think it really means more 'carry through to the end' or 'go through with'; my interpretation is that the idea of 'repeating' simply comes from the fact that the Deed of Sale is an amplified repeat of the previously-signed 'preliminary sales contract'

In the absence of greater inspiration, I'll have to agree with 'sanction' for formal use.

To Mr Dusty,


Explanation:
Dear Mr Dusty,
No one is interested in your condemnations. The asker is the only judge.
Comments in this community are in most cases friendly and/or encouraging.
Critical comments are also welcome, but they should edify, not condemn and preferably be accompanied by a constructive counter-proposal, hopefully more enlightened.

Yours sincerely
