after-acquired title - Legal Definition
The title acquired by a buyer, who previously purchased property while unaware that the seller did not have complete title to it, after the seller, unbeknownst to the buyer, later acquires complete title to the property. Title automatically vests in the buyer upon the completion of events that would otherwise give complete title to the seller.
