n. the giving of land by a private person or entity to the government, typically for a street, park or school site, as part of and a condition of a real estate development. The local county or city (or other public body) must accept the dedication before it is complete. In many cases there are "dedicated" streets on old subdivision maps which were never officially accepted and, in effect, belong to no one. The adjoining property owners can sue for a judgment to give them the title to the unclaimed (unowned) street or property by a quiet title action or request abandonment by the government which did not accept the street or other property. See also: quiet title action

    I like cats, indie rock music, chocolate, reading, drawing, watching movies and eating pizza. ( I know... I swear I&# 39; m not five years old.) I&# 39; d basically like to find someone to practice my English with or who would like to practice Spanish. :) I also like Russian and French, which are languages I don&# 39; t fully understand but would like to learn.
