Writ of Estrepement – to prevent waste by a tenant while a suit to recover the land is pending against the tenant (replaced by injunction)

Writ of Estrepement:

“1. [Law Latin ‘of enstrepment’] Hist. A writ to prevent waste by a tenant while a suit to recover the land is pending against the tenant.  Because this writ was only auxiliary to a real action to recover land, & because equity afforded the same relief by injunction, the writ fell into disuse & was abolished by 3 & 4 Will. 4, ch. 27. – Also termed estrepement.”

Definition of Estrepement:

n. (16c.) A species of aggravated waste, by stripping or devastating land
to the injury of the reversioner, especially pending a suit for possession.”
