DEFINITION of 'Requisitioned Property'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Requisitioned Property'

Requisitioned property can be treated as an involuntary conversion. Property sold under the threat of requisition can also be treated as a conversion if the threat is believed to be genuine and imminent. However, the threat of requisition must be confirmed by an actual governmental official and cannot be derived solely from a public announcement. In most cases, the requisition will be presented as a formal written demand.
