Definition of EQUITABLE ESTATE


EQUITABLE ESTATE

An equitable estate is a right or interest in land,
which, not having the properties of a legal estate, but being merely a
right of which courts of equity will take notice, requires the aid of such
court to make it available.

n. 1884. Vide Cestui que trust, Cestui que use.
