omissa et male appretiata (<<schwa>>-mis-<<schwa>> et mal-ee

<<schwa>>-pree-shee-ay-t<<schwa>>). [Law Latin] Hist. Things omitted and erroneously valued.

“When an executor confirms and omits in the inventory part of the defunct’s effects, he may have the mistake corrected. But if he do not take steps for this purpose, any one interested in the succession may apply, either to have the executor compelled to confirm the omission, or himself to confirm it. Ordinary executors ad omissa et male appretiata ought to call the principal executor to their confirmation, or it will be null; but this rule does not hold in the case of executors–creditors.” William Bell, Bell’s Dictionary and Digest of the Law of Scotland 753 (George Watson ed., 7th ed. 1890).
