This chapter analyzes the general features of the national transactions, to make a comparative analyse of them, and then state their main differences. It deals with the formalised descriptions of two types of property transactions, specifically the purchase and the subdivision of a land plot with a single-family house on it held in private ownership in Denmark, England and Wales, and Belarus. To facilitate the evaluation, a purchase process in both England and Wales, and Denmark is divided into three general phases, namely pre-contracting, contracting, and registration phases. For the purpose of the comparative evaluation, property subdivision processes in England and Wales, Denmark, and Belarus are divided into three general phases. A comparative evaluation of the key actors involved in purchase has shown that Denmark and England and Wales have, in general, a more user-friendly process in comparison with Belarus.
