Abatement of freehold
Ballentine's Law Dictionary
Wrongful entry and taking possession of real property by a stranger, before the heir or devisee has entered. See 25 Ohio St. 260.
Abatement of Freehold
Black's Law Dictionary: 2nd Edition
This takes place where a person dies seised of an inheritance, and, before the heir or devisee enters, a stranger, having no right, makes a wrongful entry, and gets possession of it. Such an entry is technically called an "abatement," and the stranger an "abator." It is, in fact, a figurative expression, denoting that the rightful possession or freehold of the heir or devisee is overthrown by the unlawful intervention of a stranger. Abatement differs from intrusion, in that it is always to the prejudice of the heir or immediate devisee, whereas the latter is to the prejudice of the reversioner or remainder-man; and disseisin differs from them both, for to disseise is to put forcibly or fraudulently a person seised of the freehold out of possession. 1 Co... Inst 277a; 3 Bl. Comin. 166; Brown v. Burdick, 25 Ohio St. 268. By the ancient laws of Normandy, this term was used to signify the act of one who, having an apparent right of possession to an estate, took possession of it immediately after the death of the actual possessor before the heir entered.

Dear Privacy Commissioner,
(In the claim of McDonell)= Fraud
At the Court at Hokianga on Friday 12 March 1858
Christopher Harris being duly sworn
My wife Ngahuia has a claim to a part of the land now settled as the Boundary of Capt McDonnell’s purchase at Motukaraka. It was in the right of her mother, whose name was Ruu. The land is on the west side of the ridge. I always heard from the Chief that they admitted her right; ever since I lived there. I was married to her by Bishop Pompallier in 1838 and have lived there ever since. Now that the Boundaries are finally settled I wish to have a piece of land set out for me there, as I have twelve children all by my wife, and wish to have a small provision for them.
With respect to the Boundaries of the Motukaraka claim, those now settled are the same as were declared before Major Richmond. I was present at the investigation by Major Richmond and was also present when Mr. White set out the boundary on the ridge. The Boundaries now fixed are exactly the same as the natives pointed out to Major Richmond. When Captain McDonnell went up the Toro Hicro to take proportion I was told by the natives he went up in a boat with people from his boat’s crew, but the natives of Motukaraka did not accompany him. The house (Waipuna) on the point was built by Utuiti about three years ago – there have always been houses of some kind there Captain McDonnell could never get the natives off the ground, they have always held a proportion of it.

Dear Privacy Commissioner,
119 Protection of under lessees on forfeiture of superior leases
Where a lessor is proceeding, by action or otherwise, to enforce a right of re-entry or forfeiture under any covenant, proviso, or stipulation in a lease, the Court may, on application by any person claiming as underlessee any estate or interest in the property comprised in the lease, or any part thereof, either in the lessor's action (if any) or in any action brought by that person for that purpose, make an order vesting, for the whole term of the lease or any less term, the property comprised in the lease, or any part thereof, in any person entitled as underlessee to any estate or interest in that property, upon such conditions as to execution of any deed or other document, payment of rent, costs, expenses, damages, compensation, the giving of security, or otherwise as the Court in the circumstances of each case thinks fit; but in no case shall any such underlessee be entitled to require a lease to be granted to him for any longer term than he had under his original underlease.

Good afternoon,


The information you’ve submitted has been sent to me to process. However,
it’s unclear to me what exactly it is that you’re requesting.


Section 12(2) of the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act)  states:

The official information requested shall be specified with due
particularity in the request.


Could you please reply and specifically indicate what it is you’re
seeking? You reference Record of Title NA16/266 and Transfer 1138 in your
included information. These are both publicly available by ordering them
from our website:


As noted on our website, there is a $15 to receive a copy of the title.
You would likely need to provide an address other than
for us to send the title to. Please note that while there is a fee, the
Ombudsman has previously made findings that while an agency may require
the payment of a nominal fee for information, that information is still
considered publicly available.


You can find the guide from the Ombudsman’s Office here:


Page 19 – Request made under the LGOIMA

Case 305527 (2011)—Property valuation data available for purchase


The Ombudsman concluded that the information was publicly available, and
the request could be refused under section 17(d) of the LGOIMA. The fact
that it might be necessary to pay a commercial rate for information of
commercial value did not make recourse to section 17(d) unreasonable.



Page2 19-20 – Request made under the OIA

Case 177600 (2008)—Vehicle registration information available for purchase


If [an agency] properly refuses a request under [section 18(d)], the
charging provisions in the [OIA] do not apply. A situation where [an
agency] can clearly rely on section 18(d) is where it publishes the
information and advertises this as available for purchase at a set price
by any person.


I also note that in the body of material submitted are several “Link to
this” references. However, there is no actual link included. If the link
is question is required to for us to provide information in response to
your query, please provide the full link address.


Once you have responded with requests for specific information, we will
process your request; at this point in time it does not appear to be a
valid/actionable request under the Act.

Dear Ministerial Support

I asked for my Unique identifiers (principle 12)(3) which states under
(3) An agency that assigns unique identifiers to individuals shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that unique identifiers are assigned only to individuals whose identity is clearly established.
One who has all the rights to which a freemen is entitled; one who is not under the power of another, as a slave, a minor, and the like.
To make a valid contract, a person must, in general, be sui juris. Every one of full age is presumed to be sui juris
What puts an end to a thing. A conclusive presumption of law is one which cannot be contradicted even by direct and positive proof. Take, for example, the presumption that an infant is incapable of judging whether it is or is not against his interest. When infancy is pleaded and proved the plaintiff cannot show that the defendant was within one day of being of an age when the contract was made and perfectly competent to make a contract.
That which cannot be contradicted by any other evidence. For example, a record, unless impeached for fraud, is conclusive evidence between the Public Works and the Crown

The power of the mind which directs the actions of a man.
In criminal law, it is necessary that there should be an act of the will to commit a crime, for unless the act is wilful it is no offense. It is the consent of the will that renders human actions commendable or culpable, and where there is no win there can be no transgression.
The defect or want of will may be classed as follows: 1. Natural, as that of infancy. 2. Accidental; namely, 1st. Dementia. 2d. Casualty or chance. 3d. Ignorance. 3. Civil; namely, 1st. Civil subjection. 2d. Compulsion. 3d. Necessity. 4th. Well-grounded fear
75 Certificate to be evidence of proprietorship
(1) Every certificate of title duly authenticated under the hand and seal of the
Registrar shall be received in all courts of law and equity as evidence of the
particulars therein set forth or endorsed thereon, and of their being entered in
the register, and shall, unless the contrary is proved by the production of the register
or a certified copy thereof, be conclusive evidence that the person named in
that certificate of title, or in any entry thereon, as seised of or as taking estate or
interest in the land therein described is seised or possessed of that land for the
estate or interest therein specified as from the date of the certificate or as from
the date from which the same is expressed to take effect, and that the property
comprised in the certificate has been duly brought under this Act.
(2) Nothing in this section applies to electronic transactions land.
Compare: 1915 No 35 s 68
Section 75(2): inserted, on 1 June 2002, by section 65(1) of the Land Transfer (Computer Registers
and Electronic Lodgement) Amendment Act 2002 (2002 No 11).
