right of set-off (or offset)


Explanation:
In the context of a contract, it is typical to refer to a right of set-off (or offset), as in the following:

www.gmacfs.com/notes/demand/
“We have no right of set-off against your Demand Notes for indebtedness not related to your Demand Notes.”

www.hmkdirect.com/conditions.htm
“5.6 The Buyer shall not be entitled to exercise any right of set-off or counterclaim”

www.amwarkup.co.uk/terms_conditions.htm
“16.5 The Customer has no right of set-off statutory or otherwise. “


http://techdeals.biz.findlaw.com/agreements/xoom/revolutiona...
“This Note is subject to a right of offset in accordance with Section 9.2 of
the Asset Purchase Agreement. Debtor shall have the right to offset against and
deduct from all amounts otherwise payable to RSI under the terms of the this
Note any sums owing by RSI to Debtor pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement.”


and in a real estate lease context:
www.leasingadvisors.com/term_defs.html#Right_of_Offset
Right of Offset - A specific clause in a lease where the tenant has the right to deduct from the rent certain costs which are due to the tenant from the landlord


Merriam Webster’s Dictionary of Law, 1996:
“Set-off: the reduction or discharge of a debt by settling against it a claim in favor of the debtor; specif: the reduction or discharge of a party’s debt or claim by an assertion of another claim arising out of another transaction… “

Hamblock Wessels lists “Ausgleich” as one of the definitions of “set-off”
and Romain lists “to set off” (=offset) as one of the definitions of “ausgleichen”


Hope this helps!
