Something that, while not actually true, is imputed by the law to exist or to have occurred and treated as if it were actually so. For example, to say “I’m giving you my car” and to turn over the car keys would probably be considered a constructive delivery of the vehicle itself. See also legal fiction, actual, apparent, and impute.
