Question: Part C. Problem Question Scenario:

Robert, who lives in Athens, ordered a new 1500cc motorbike manufactured in the UK from George, a dealer in London. George began arrangements for importation of the bike to Greece. He was told by the Greek authorities that an import licence was required, that licence applications could be made only in January in any one year and that he should lodge the application as early as possible in the year, as Greece imposes an annual limit on the number of motorbike that may be imported. There is a fee for the licence.

George is also informed that Greek legislation on the protection of the environment and public health requires all motorbikes over 1000cc used on public roads in Greece to be fitted with a filtration system for the removal of the toxic substance benizan from exhaust fumes. Greece is the only Member State of the EU to impose such a requirement. UK manufactured bikes have never been fitted with this kind of filtration system.

Robert then discovers that, even if he did succeed in acquiring a 1500cc bike the cost of keeping it on the road in Greece would be substantial, as the road tax for motorbikes over 1000cc is more than three times the tax on motorbikes up to 1000cc.

Robert is not considering cancelling his order with George and purchasing a motorbike of Greek manufacture. If he does so, however, he will need to adjust his requirements, for Greek manufacturers do not produce motorbikes over 1000cc.

Answer: The free movement of goods clearly stated within Article 26 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) continues...

Question: Formative assessment (2)
Problem Question

Stavros and Freya each own land in a local village. Stavros originally ran a horticultural business from his property, Wellsummer Manor. Wellsummer Manor comprises a large house and surrounding fields. Freya owns the nearby farm, Freymeadow Farm, where she has enough space to keeps sheep and goats. The titles to Wellsummer Manor and Freymeadow Farms are unregistered.

Years ago, Freya bought a herd of buffalo. There was not enough room for the buffalo on Freymeadow Farm. Stavros allowed Freya to use his land so the buffalo could roam more freely. In 2003, Stavros and Freya entered into a year-long agreement to that effect, on the understanding that the agreement would be renewed. Stavros’s business began to suffer so he stopped trading and went backpacking around the world. As a result, the agreement between Stavros and Freya was never renewed but Freya continued using Stavros’s land. She even erected signs that say ‘Freya’s Buffalo Ranch’.

Earlier this year, Stavros returned from his travels, having run out of money. Stavros now realises that his land must now be worth substantially more than when he purchased it. He wishes to sell the land to release capital but Freya insists that she and her buffalo are entitled to stay put.

(a) Advise Freya.
(b) How, if at all, would your advice differ if the title to Wellsummer Manor were registered?

Answer: This problem question discusses the issue of adverse possession. This is a method of gaining legal title to real property by the...
