The World Law Dictionary Project

English may be the common language of the world, but the Common Law is not the common law of the world

That’s why, in a unique project, TransLegal has teamed up with leading law schools from around the world to create an online multilingual law dictionary linking the world’s legal languages to a single English law dictionary.

e.g. principle, consideration, jurisdiction

certificate of redemption noun

(US) an official document confirming that you have paid all outstanding property taxes and fines associated with a property that has been subjected to foreclosure (=the process of forcing the sale of property because the owner is not able to pay back debts relating to that property). A certificate of redemption allows the former owner to regain ownership of the property after foreclosure but before an auction sale (=the sale of an asset such as a piece of real property or a business to the highest bidder).
The Sheriff's Office will issue a Certificate of Redemption upon receipt of the full amount of the redemption payment.
