I'm going to guess, just a guess, that this is a Feng Shui certificate that certifies that the house (since it was found inside a wall) has all its Feng and Shui in proper balance.
... or something quite similar to Feng Shui where a spiritual consultant comes to a home to certify that whatever superstition or kink the home owner is concerned about is covered.
"This house is ghost-free", or "This house will be happy", or something like that I expect is the spirit of the certification we see here.
Some people are happy with just some incense and a shrine, while others feel it's more 'official' to have a signed document with a declaration of official whatever-ness.
Just a guess.

Well that seems to be one helluva "guess". Although I have never heard of such a thing, I am sure something like that can/may exist.
You state it's just a guess but what led you in that direction. I must admit, it's an interesting theory.

The only one slightly resembling any Rune script is the end of the first "word", which resembles the Othila rune (letter O), but it isn't exact. The rest are not runic in nature.
The Voynich text is much more ornamental and flowing than this is. It's almost as if somebody took English letters, and tried to approximate the visual style of Kanji, or some other Asian script. At least, that's what it looks like to me.
