Definition - What does Defeasance mean?

Results in the elimination of the issuer’s debt obligations by issuing new debt instrument to pay off the outstanding issue. The old issue is removed from the issuer’s balance sheet and the proceeds of the new issue are placed in an escrow account to pay off the now-defeased issue.
