French to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Real Estate
French term or phrase:valeurs
"Le MANDATAIRE s’interdit de recevoir des acquéreurs toute somme d’argent, effets ou valeurs." This is again from an agency agreement with an estate agent. I presume it means securities, but I thought it was a strange thing to specify. Is it this or is there another meaning? I saw one proz ansewer referring to cah equivalents. thanks.
"Ou autres valeurs" doesn't necessarily mean "securities". It could mean many other advantages: a free vacation, the loan of an automobile, free work done on one's summer retreat, an evening with a prostitute, an introduction to a government official ..
