Disseisin by Construction of Law Law and Legal Definition

Disseisin by construction of law is a kind of disseisin which is created by acts committed without force, in themselves equivocal, and not necessarily amounting to an entire and immediate ouster of the freehold, but which the owner may, if he pleases, treat as usurpations of his freehold for the purpose of vindicating his title by an action at law.

Disseisin by construction of law is also termed as disseisin by the election of the owner.
