Res perit domino

“Res perit domino” is a Latin phrase that means “the property is lost to its owner”. This phrase is commonly used in legal contexts to refer to the principle that if someone loses or damages their property, it is their loss and not the loss of the person who has possession of the property. This principle is based on the idea that the owner of the property bears the risk of loss or damage to it.
