Blackacre

By on October 13, 2018

Blackacre is the name given to an example piece of land or property when discussing real estate concepts and law.

In a way, it is like the John Doe of real estate.

So instead of saying “a house” or “the land”, the term blackacre is used instead when professors lecture their students about real estate.

Common variances and alternatives for blackacre include whiteacre, greenacre, and brownacre.

They are often used when more than one property is discussed as examples.
