Appeal history

C/17/155988/KG RK 17-228, Noord-Nederland Court (Leeuwarden)
CJEU's case law cited by the court
In appeal, ABN AMRO requests, in summary, (A) to annul the order of the preliminary relief judge and (B) the authentic deed dated 3 July 2006 with reference to mortgage, to be certified as a European Enforcement Order. The court considers that the (original) loan for which a mortgage has been issued and which is laid down in an authentic (mortgage) deed has not been disputed. To that extent the provisions of Article 3 of the EEO Regulation are met. Furthermore, even after execution, the mortgage deed will retain its executive power for the remaining debt (ECLI: NL: HR: 2013: BY4889), if the existing claim has been described with sufficient certainty. The mortgage deed complies with this requirement. The nature and scope of the residual debt (€ 85.823,19) can be determined in a manner that can be binding on the debtor. This leads to the opinion that also for the residual debt there is a claim that has been acknowledged by authentic deed. The authentic (mortgage) deed is therefore suitable for certification as a European enforcement order. The request is granted.
