Claim

Claim – this Latin word means secretly, in secret. In practice, it participates in the legal rule “interdictum quod vi aut claim”, which applies in the area of Real Estate Law. There it provides that a person, who has changed the property owned by the plaintiff, should be summoned to restore its original condition. Nowadays the term “claim” has another meaning – of a demand by the virtue of a right.
