Nondisturbance Clause

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Nondisturbance Clause'

A type of clause in a mortgage contract. The nondisturbance clause ensures that the rental agreement between the tenant and the landlord will continue under any circumstances. This is done primarily to protect the renter from eviction by the mortgagor if the property is foreclosed upon. A nondisturbance clause ensures that a tenant will not be evicted in the event that the landlord goes bankrupt.

A nondisturbance clause has a different application for mineral rights. In this case, the clause provides that the mineral extraction process does not interfere with any surface development of the land. For example, an oil company that drills wells on a piece of property may not interfere with the construction of a building or other developments on that property.
