Definition of "Al-kharaj bil daman"

The right to derive benefit from a property if one assumes the responsibility for its maintenance. It states the principle of the Islamic jurisprudence that the yield from an asset is for the one who is liable for that asset and one who does not bear the liability has no claim to the yield. For example, if a person buys a house and then rents it out, but subsequently notices a defect in the house and returns the house to the seller, the seller has no claim on the rent during the period the house remained with the buyer.
