Latin Legal Terms


Chartae – this Latin word means: a charter. In practice, the word participates in the legal phrase “De warrantia chartae” which literally means "of a warranty of charter". It details a court order, allowing a tenant to be obliged to deposit a warranty. “Chartae” relates also to the legal maxim “interpretatio chartarum benigne facienda est, ut res magis valeat quam pereat”, which applies in the area of Law of Contracts. It provides that when a transaction is non-valid as performed, then let it gain as much validity as it can have.
