Simple clause

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The simple clause ( § 724 , § 725 ZPO ) is the most common type of enforcement clause , which is placed on a title (e.g. judgment) so that this title can be foreclosed. It is issued by the clerk of the office in the clause issuing procedure. It must be distinguished from the qualified clause issued by the Rechtspfleger.
