241 such share including the right to exclusive use of a specific part of the building which according to its disposition is destined to be used as a separate whole. After transcription of the notarial deed of division in the register, each apartment is considered to be a real property by its own. Before proceeding to such division, the notary files with the registrar an application for establishment of the complex number for the lots to be in cluded in the division, with a drawing in triplicate showing the delimitation of each part of buildings and land destined for individual use and including the exclusive use as an apartment according to the intended deed of division. According to article 638f of the Burgerlijk Wetboek, the deed of division is void if it does not include the cadastral designation of the apartments in compliance with rules to be fixed by way of regulation. Such regulation was issued by Koninklijk Besluit of n August 1952 Stb. 444, defining the ca dastral designation as: 1. the cadastral community and section in which the lots under division are found; 2. the complex number consisting of the complex number established for the lots to be divided, followed by the capital letter A (for apartment) 3. the apartment index, a number marked by the applicant on the drawing produced, as an identification mark of the part destined for separate and exclusive use included in the apartment. Thus the cadastral designation is established in cooperation between cadas tre and owner in so far as the cadastre supplies the indication of community, section and complex, while the owner produces the apartment index. Because of its three-dimensional character an apartment cannot be shown on the cadastral plan. A spatial representation will be found on the drawing filed with the application, and this must remain available for public con sultation in the registry. c. Act on alienation of agricultural land of 7 August 1953 Stb. 446. Scarcity of agricultural land in this extremely densely populated country has forced government into controlling its distribution and price. The act relates to land on which some form of agriculture is or may im mediately be practised. Control has been given to the Grondkamer, a special tribunal for litigation regarding agricultural holdings, to whom all contracts concerning transfer of land must be presented for approval, save for certain exceptions stated in the act. Transfer of real property not being land in the sense of the act is therefore free from such control. The act states however that when a deed of transfer of such real property is submitted for transcription in the public register, a statement by or on behalf of the council (burgemeester en wethouders) of the local authority (gemeente) in whose territory the property lies must be produced, to the effect that the property is not land in the sense of the act. This statement is not required for property situated in an area defined by local ordinance as comprising property permanently used for other than agricultural purposes. d. Modification of the land taxation act (Wet op de Grondbelasting). An act of 17 May 1956, Stb. 323, laying down a new arrangement con cerning jurisdiction in matters of taxation, modified a number of articles in the law on land taxation. The new system is that if the person interested does not agree to the results of measurement, he can appeal to the tax division (belastingkamer) of the competent Court of Appeal, after having presented his objections to the head of the office of the surveying service in whose area the property concerned is situated. Cassation of the judgment of the court of appeal is possible by the supreme court (Hoge Raad). 4.
