Dedication

n. The gift of land to an entity or government by a private person under the condition that the land be used for real estate development. Before the development is complete, the public body must accept the dedication. Dedicated streets which were never officially accepted, that do not belong to anyone. Consequently, adjoining property owners can sue for title of the unowned property through a quiet title action or request government abandonment.
