Actio Confessoria Law and Legal Definition

Actio confessoria is a Latin term which means action based on an admission. It means an action in which the defendant admits liability without expressing it in the form of a fixed amount. Here the judge assesses the amount to be paid as damages. Such an action can be brought in the following two situations:

when a person claiming a servitude found the right contested; and

when any obstacle prevented the free enjoyment of the servitude.
