La palabra del día: Evicción

Online Business Spanish courses

Feminine noun. From the Latin evincere with the meaning of “winning in a litigious situation”. It is a term of specifically legal use that supposes the existence of someone who has legally acquired an asset affected by a legal defect that they was unaware of (for example, the object was seized, mortgaged or subjected to a usufruct) and that fact causes the new owner to be stripped by court ruling in whole or in part of what he bought, since there is a previous creditor or someone with a better right.
In Legal Spanish, we have an expression: sanear la evicción. You will see it often in contract clauses. The noun is el saneamiento de la evicción (also saneamiento por evicción). It refers to the obligation that corresponds to the seller of a thing when the buyer is stripped or disturbed in all in part, that is, the seller must protect the buyer in the ownership and use of the thing, but also the saneamiento de la evicción includes responding for the hidden vices of the thing.
Besides that, the English term ‘eviction’ is tranladated into Spanish as desalojo. The verb is desalojar. dc

Verb. To give, grant, do mercy and grace of something. E.g.: Se ha suspendido la práctica anterior de conceder un día libre a los trabajadores para donar sangre: The previous practice of allowing employees a day off work to donate blood has been discontinued. The noun is la concesión.
As you can see, conceder is almost a perfect synonime of otorgar, but, there is a difference in the noun: in Enconomy la concesión means something slightly different than el otorgamiento.
In economics and administrative law, a concesión is the granting of the right to exploit, for a specified period, goods and services by one public Administration or company to another, generally private. E.g.: Sacyr firma su nueva concesión de autopistas en Italia de 2.700 millones de euros: Sacyr signs its new motorway concession in Italy of 2,700 million euros. dc

Online Spanish Course

Feminine noun. From the Latin fedare, faith, security. In legal Spanish, in the strict sense, it is a personal guarantee, by virtue of which a guarantor (fiador) guarantees the fulfillment of a specific obligation. The fiador is a third person, outside the main obligation, who guarantees its fulfillment, committing to fulfill what the debtor (deudor principal) has not fulfilled himself. E.g.: Juez traba embargo a fiador de Wilmondes: Judge seizes Wilmondes’ warantor.
Fianza also refers to the delivery of an amount of money as collateral for certain obligations. E.g.: Libre bajo fianza hombre de 31 años que agredió a su pareja en Arecibo: Free on bail 31-year-old man who assaulted his partner in Arecibo. dc

La palabra del día: Dolo

fingerprint 255897 1920 1

Masculine noun. From the Latin dolus, trap, trickery. From dulus also derive the adjective doloso/a/s and the noun duelo, grief, duel.
In Legal Spanish, dolo is the malicious will to deceive someone, cause harm or breach an obligation.
To have dolo, the harm caused has to be the same the commitment had in mind when they acted. If the harm caused is bigger that the one intended, we are in front of a delito preterintencional. This is important because the concept of delito doloso is usually translated as intentional crime, and, as you can see, it doesn’t actually mean that. dc
