20.12.2002 NL law

Rixtel B.V. wilde een assurantieportefeuille van De Provincale B.V. kopen. Zürich Lebensversicherungs Gesellschaft (‘Zürich’) financierde de koopsom.

Op verzoek van de koper stelde de notaris een akte op voor de overdracht van de assurantieportefeuille en een akte voor de overdracht van de aandelen in De Provincale B.V. Zürich had een medewerker van de notaris medegedeeld dat betaling van het door haar over te maken bedrag aan de verkopende partij slechts mocht plaatsvinden als de akte van bedrijfsoverdracht ongewijzigd zou worden gepasseerd. De notaris heeft de twee akten gepasseerd en heeft de verkoper van de aandelen betaald met de hem door Zürich toevertrouwde gelden. De koopsom voor de portefeuille was schuldig gebleven. Vervolgens bleek dat Zürich niet bekend was met de aandelenoverdracht.
