Onerous Title Law and Legal Definition
Title to the property acquired by giving valuable consideration is onerous title. Consideration can be by payment money, rendition of services, discharge of lien, or performance of conditions.
Onerous title is acquired where either spouse during marriage gains property through labor, industry, or other valuable consideration. [Smith v. Smith, 94 Nev. 249, 251 (Nev. 1978)]]
