Mesne Profits

By on December 26, 2018

Mesne profits refer to damages or profits derived from a party who is in wrongful possession of real property.

The fair market rental of the property during the period of wrongful possession will usually be a factor that determines the amount.

Sometimes even the property value used to calculating property tax can be used.

One must note that the damages are for the possession of the property.

It does not include any losses suffered by the lawful owner for destructive actions carried out on the land in wrongful possession.

In certain circumstances, improvements made by the trespasser can be used to offset the judgment of mesne profits.
