Law/Patents - Law (general) / Deed of Grant of Ownership
Spanish term or phrase: s/r
Esta es una abreviatura que aparece en una escritura, al final de la declaración del escribano. Se refiere a enmiendas realizadas en el texto. Se enmendó una letra en una enumeración, la letra "b". Al final de la declaración del escribano, una nota escrita a mano dice: s/r "b" y probablemente la palabra "saber", aunque esto es ilegible.
¿Qué significa la abreviatura? Gracias

substitution valid
Explanation:
sustitución de ratura - vale

s/r refers to the substitution of one word (a single letter in this case), that has been crossed out and replaced by another. And the following word is probably "vale" (or "válida") - unless it happens to match the initials of the signatory's name.

In Chile - and in my experience - all these last-minute corrections are covered by the expresion "Lo manuscrito vale + the signatory's initials" at bottom of the last page of the document - regardless of the precise form of the changes that have been made. In other jurisdictions, each correction must be validated individually in the margin where the correction is made.

agree  Charles Davis: s/r stands for "sobre raspado" or "sobrerraspado" in Argentina, meaning that "b" has been added to replace a letter or letters that has/have been deleted. "Corrected" would serve. And as you say, the next word ("saber") is probably "vale".
