Outgrant Law and Legal Definition

Outgrant refers to grant of interest or right to one to use government real property by a lease, easement, license, or permit. It is an agreement whereby a private party may, depending on the type of real estate instrument issued, enjoy an interest in or use real property.

The following is an example of a case law on outgrants:

The level of authority needed to determine whether land is available for outgrant, or whether the determination of availability should be revoked, is not the same as the level of authority needed to terminate a specific lease. [Zoeller v. Brownlee, 113 Fed. Appx. 390, 392 (Fed. Cir. 2004)].
