jus quaesitum tertio
jus quaesitum tertio‘the third party has acquired a right’. In the law of obligations in systems following the civilian tradition, the law will allow a third party, i.e. one who is not a party to the contract between two other parties, to receive a right under it. For the right to be conferred, the parties have to make their intentions irrevocable as by delivery or intimation to the other party or simply by making this clear from the terms of the deed. For England see THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY CONTRACT.
