Estoppel by Deed Law and Legal Definition

Estoppel by deed means that a grantor is barred from denying the truth of a deed. The doctrine is applied in cases where a suit is arising out of a deed. It can also be invoked when there is a right attached to a deed.

Following is an example of a case defining estoppel by deed:

The doctrine of "estoppel by deed" is defined as the estoppel or bar which precludes a party from denying the truth of his deed. [United States v. 1403 Leland Ave., 1994 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 10087 (D. Pa. 1994)].
