    nemo dat quod non habet


    Nemo dat quod non habet  is a Latin legal principle meaning "no one gives what they do not have." Essentially, it underscores the concept that you can't transfer ownership of something you don't possess. It's a fundamental rule in property law, emphasizing that a person can't convey a greater interest in property than they themselves hold. For example, if I don't own a car, I can't sell it to you. This principle protects buyers from unwittingly purchasing goods from someone who doesn't have the right to sell them, ensuring transactions are based on legitimate ownership.
