Absolute Title Law and Legal Definition

Absolute title is an exclusive title to a property which excludes all others not compatible with the right. Absolute title is free of liens and attachments. Absolute title replaces all previous titles. An absolute title is acquired by a registered landowner under the registered land system.

A purchaser would obtain no more absolute title than was possessed by his/ her vendor, and when the absolute title never became vested, the purchaser would obtain nothing. [Roy v. West, 194 Ky. 96 (Ky. 1922)]

Absolute title will not vest in the legatee until after the final settlement of the estate. [Sanders v. Cabaniss, 45 Ala. 563 (Ala. 1871)]
