Current Law Students / Re: Adverse Possession

Permissive use by the actual owner always disrupts adverse possession. However, what constitutes "permissive" varies by jurisdiction (in some, conduct can suffice; in others, a writing is required). To cover all your bases--go with a writing acknowledging the adverse possessers occupancy and that you, as true owner, grant them permission to continue.

Current Law Students / Future Interests Problems
« on: October 17, 2008, 09:59:55 PM »
Can anyone label the present/future interests in these problems?

1. To A for life, then to B or his heirs;
2. To A for life, then to B or his children;
3. To A for life, then to B or his issue.

I haven't seen the "or" language in any future interest problems I've done so far, so I wanted to see if anyone had any insight.

Well, the E&E says otherwise--and that's what compelled me to seek a 2nd opinion. Here is their response: "A's life estate is subject to a condition subsequent that is also a condition precedent to B's future interest, and classified as a contingent remainder because it has a condition precedent". That's the extent of their 'explanation'.

IMO this E&E is f-ing horrible. Are they correct somehow & I'm just not getting it?

Because A's life estate can be divested upon the happening of an event (i.e. 'going bankrupt'), B's future interest cannot be a remainder; The life estate would not be coming to a 'natural' end. Therefore, it must be an executory interest. Agree?

Ok I should have been more specific. A's present interest is a life estate subject to a condition subsequent. However, does the conditional language "but if A goes bankrupt" make B's future interest a 'contingent remainder' or an 'executory interest held in fee simple absolute'?

What are the present & future interests in this example:

"O conveys to A for life, but if A goes bankrupt, to B and his heirs" ??
