The acquisition in good faith may be precluded by gross negligence on the acquirer’s part. In the case of the acquisition of a (luxury) motor vehicle, bad faith on the acquirer’s part may arise despite the presentation of a motor vehicle certificate if special circumstances, such as the existence of a street sale or the absence of a proxy or, in the case of a luxury car, the service booklet, were bound to arouse his suspicion and he disregards them.

A pharmacist authorised to produce medicines for the treatment of cancer patients, who massively and thousands of times does not comply with the requirements of the medical prescription, thereby accepting an incalculable health risk for patients, some of whom are seriously ill, and abuses their trust for personal financial interests, is unreliable and unworthy in the sense of § 6 II BApO in conjunction with § 4 I 2 No. 2 No. 2 BApO.

Without any enquiries or other expressions of interest by the tenant in the condition of the rented property, the landlord does not have to provide information about this without being asked, so that there is no deception by omission about the actual condition of the rented property. If a tenant fails to inspect a flat before renting it, although there would have been an opportunity to do so, this generally falls within the tenant’s sphere of risk.

About Recht vertieft

“Recht vertieft” aims to link legal practice with legal theory and methodology, and in doing so to review and deepen limited to exam-relevant material. 

The aim is to provide a platform for the exchange, discussion, and publication of legal topics based on case law and literature, which is open to all. For this reason, everyone – from interested “laymen” to students and trainee lawyers to judges, lawyers, and professors – is invited to participate in the context of a guest authorship or appearance. Further information on modalities and technical requirements are available here (only German). An overview of all our previous guests can be found here (only me).
