lawful charges


lawful charges
Impositions lawfully imposed. Charges made in accord with rates prescribed by law. As the term is used in a statute requiring a party who redeems from a mortgage foreclosure sale to pay all "lawful charges," it is one of very large signification and includes every lien or incumbrance or claim the purchaser may have upon the premises, and for which, at law or in equity, he would be entitled to hold the lands as security, and for the satisfaction of which a court of equity would condemn them. First National Bank v Elliott, 125 Ala 646, 27 So 7.
