homologation

approval or sanction. In particular, a form of personal bar (estoppel) in Scots law. It focuses on the acts of the party seeking to escape an obligation as approbatory of the obligation. It is now of much less practical significance because a statutory equivalent has been introduced by the Requirement ofWriting (Scotland) Act 1995.
