Definition of REI INTERVENTUS


REI INTERVENTUS

When a party is imperfectly bound in an
obligation, he may in general, annul such imperfect obligation; but when he has
permitted the opposite party to act as if his obligation or agreement were
complete, such things have intervened as to deprive him of the right to rescind
such obligation; these circumstances are the rei interventus. Bell s Com. 328,
329, 5th ed.; Burt. Man. P. R. 128.
