Interpretatio Chartarum Benigne Facienda Est, Ut Res Magis Valeat Quam Pereat Law and Legal Definition
The maxim interpretatio chartarum benigne facienda est, ut res magis valeat quam pereat means the construction of deeds is to be made liberally, so that the thing may survive rather than perish; when the transaction is not valid as I do it, let it have as much validity as it can have.
“Wherever a party has the power to do a thing (statute provisions being out of the way), and means to do it, the instrument he employs shall be so construed as to give effect to his intention. It is but the application of the old maxim, interpretatio chartarum benigne facienda est ut res magis valeat quam pereat - quando res non valet ut ago valeat quantum valere potest.” [Bond v. Bunting, 78 Pa. 210, 219 (Pa. 1875)].
