Define That Term #250

Dictionary_2 Monday's term was reciprocity, which is defined as:

n. mutual exchange of privileges between states, nations, businesses or individuals. In regard to lawyers, reciprocity refers to recognizing the license of an attorney from another state without the necessity of taking the local state's bar examination. Such reciprocity is seldom granted now, since many large states refuse to give it.

No one guessed this time around.

Today's term is:

encumbrance.

As always, educated guesses are welcome, but dictionaries are not.

A three-dollar word describing limitation on the power to use or dispose of property. Synonymous with lien in some jurisdictions, but also covers easements and restrictions (such as the ban on using reference books in filling the comment space for "Define that Term!")
