German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Real Estate
German term or phrase:Handlungsstörerhaftung
it's in connection with the sale of real estate and possible (hidden) inherited soil contamination and the barring of rights/claims on the part of the buyer
Explanation: Low answer confidence since you failed to provide sufficient context (section of German source text).
According to Schulte, Lee, Paul (Real Estate Dictionary German-English, English-German), a "Handlungsstörer" is a "polluter" (which seems to fit your contamination context) or a "person actively responsible for a criminal act" (which does not seem to fit here).
