indenture of fine


indenture of fine
The indenture of the foot of a fine. The fifth step, or concluding part, of a fine for the alienation of land included the whole proceeding, reciting the parties, day, year, and place, and before whom the fine was levied or acknowledged. Indentures of this were made, or engrossed at the chirographer's office, and delivered to the cognizor or cognizee; usually beginning, "haec est finalis concordia," this is the final agreement, and then reciting the whole proceeding at length. See 2 Bl Comm 351.
