writ of entry ad terminum qui praeteriit

A writ of entry for the term which has passed. A common-law writ which lay for an owner who deemed it more expedient to admit that his tenant at sufferance had gained a tortious freehold, than to oust him by actual entry, as he had a lawful right to do. See 3 Bl Comm 175.
