Commissive Waste Law and Legal Definition
Commissive waste refers to waste caused by the affirmative acts of the tenants. It can be waste caused by the commission of some positive act which causes injury to the property like pulling down or otherwise destroying a house, cutting down timber, or the like. Generally, it consists of some destructive act of the tenant himself, but destructive acts of a stranger for which the tenant is liable, have been classified under the head of positive waste.
Commissive waste is also termed voluntary waste; active waste or affirmative waste.
